Rigid Panel Solar Array Systems


DSS provides a multitude of high-heritage rigid panel solar array systems scalable from 50W to over 15kW per wing, and in a variety of stowed and deployable configurations, and yoke / offset structure standoff configurations.

DSS’s proven designs implement high-heritage honeycomb panel constructions, low shock launch restraint / release system technologies, highly-redundant stiff and reliable hinge assemblies with damping and latching features as required, leading photovoltaic technologies from either Spectrolab, SolAero or Azur, and multiple deployment synchronizations techniques. DSS’s rigid panel solar arrays can also be designed for ESD applications, and electrostatic and magnetic cleanliness applications.
