Momentus and Ascent Solar Technologies Partner to Bring Leading-Edge Solar Arrays to Market

“Ascent’s flexible, lightweight photovoltaic modules are ideal for the space environment,”

“Our CIGS products are resilient to radiation and other drivers of degradation while operating in orbits between the Earth and the Moon. For those designing space missions, this equates to more end-of-life power with an order of magnitude less mass. We’re excited to be the baseline power generation solution for TASSA, and look forward to continuing to collaborate with the Momentus team to provide long-lived and sustainable solutions for proliferated space architectures.”

ASTI’s Thin Film Outshines the Competition

ASTI PV vs Other Technologies

Sector: Aerospace/Space

  • Satellite Power
  • Solar Sail Development
  • High Voltage Solar
  • High Altitude Airships
  • Power Beaming

Space PV Market (Demand and Attributes)

  • Current space solar market demand is 7 to 10 of MW per year.
  • The space solar market is expected to reach 60 to 100+ of MW per year of demand before 2030
  • Robust supply chain w/ minimal throughputs
  • Ultra-lightweight, superior module specific energy (2.1kW/kg)
  • Demonstrated to be optimal for enduring the harshness of the space environment’s radiation, vacuum temperature extremes, and other hazards.

Competitor's Lack Capacity/Capability to Meet Market Need

  • Sales prospects have indicated that competing space PV providers currently have lead times exceeding 12 months and prices exceeding $100 per watt with highest performance triple junction cells fetching more than $150 per watt.
  • The space industry’s leading PV providers have an estimated 3 to 4 MW per year in total of annual production capacity
  • Inadequate supply chains for key materials such as gallium arsenide and space rated cover glass are weaknesses/threats that ASTI's solution negates.

The Space Industry presents a premium market opportunity with unmet customer demand where ASTI products are highly differentiated at +17% efficiency, but +17% has to be met on production scale manufacturing

TitanTM Optimized for Space

First CIGS Solar Module Engineered for Peak performance in Space

  • Optimized Cell area to comply with neutral magnetic moment requirements
  • Specific power of 2000+W/kg bare
  • Larger module size results in fewer connection points required; reduces system risk
  • Titan based arrays capable of high voltage – +300 volts – for propulsion systems

Future Growth Opportunities Space

There are a few large constellations consisting of thousands of satellites that are currently being fielded. ASTI has been researching the prospective opportunities, mapping out corporate enterprise and opportunities, and charting out sales approaches.

Company A - Megaconstellations

  • Number of units: +2,500 Satellites in initial constellations
  • Power Needs: ~5kW/Satellite (~16MW for the constellation)
  • Current material: Undisclosed, but known to be 12 to 14% efficient at end of life, but voltage output lags ASTI’s Titan product by 15 to 20%
  • ASTI has small NRE project with Company A

Company B - Megaconstellations and Constellations

  • Large satellite production facility, pursuing additional megaconstellations
  • 85% vertically integrated, but not power generation, potential for ASTI “Fabless” production being added to their requirements
  • Number of units: +8,000 satellite per year production capacity, estimated 3MW in total

Company C – Super Satellites (1 to 3 MW)

  • Number of units: 648
  • Power Needs: undisclosed

Unlocking Success Stories: Ascent Solar's Customer Showcase

Most of the world still relies on heavy and rigid silicon-based modules, encapsulated in glass with a standard 60-cell x 72-cell module design. Our flexible and lightweight thin-film solutions are built from the very beginning with the widest application of possibilities in mind.

Ascent Solar Technologies Inc. Achieves Spaceflight Heritage for its Space Solar PV Array Products on Momentus’ Vigoride-6 Mission

“This demonstration validates Ascent as a leader in space sustainability, and is reflective of the tremendous market opportunity we continue to pursue,” “We’ve also now proven that our power generation solutions available today are aligned with the European Space Agency’s Zero Debris Charter. Ascent’s Space HDK line of products are engineered to be resilient enough that if impacted and penetrated by space debris, the array can continue to generate power while not creating additional debris. Ultimately, this drastically lowers mission risks for spacecraft specifying flexible thin-film power generation capabilities like Ascent’s, which are poised to be one of the technologies that will enable the preservation of the global commons of Earth’s orbits as they grow increasingly more crowded and trafficked.”

By Paul Warley, CEO of Ascent Solar Technologies.
