MMA Part #17AB36
This solar array configuration consists of two, three-panel solar arrays, each covered with 21 triple-junction GaAs solar cells to generate 36 Watts of electrical power at the distance of Earth (1 AU). Each solar-array wing features a root hinge which enables deployment about two perpendicular axes.
These arrays are successfully powering NASA’s Mars Cube One (MarCO), and are surpassing previously estimated peak power targets. MarCO’s twin cubesats are the smallest satellites ever — and MMA’s first ever HaWKs — sent past the moon on an interplanetary mission!
- Dual-axis deployment
- 36 watts BOL
*SADA (gimbal) is optional and may require interface/configuration changes. Learn more about MMA’s gimbals.
