dc.description.abstract In 1991, NASA-JPL completed the APSA (Advanced Photovoltaic Solar Array) program, demonstrating a lightweight deployable flexible array wing capable of 130 W/kg specific performance, a substantial improvement over convetional flight hardware. The design was based on the use of thin (55 microns) silicon or thin (100 microns) GaAs/Ge solar cells (Reference 1). Further array performance enhancements will require the implementation of a new advanced Solar Cell. en_US
