TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Energy & Resilience
Area: Power Generation
Tech Readiness: TRL 6

Tech Brief: Our rugged solar panel is one-third the weight of a standard panel of the same capacity, can sustain repeated impacts including from gunfire, can be made in custom form factors, never needs cleaning and is inexpensive to produce at high and low volumes in the U.S.

Value Proposition: Our main value to the US Military and security agencies stems from our lightweight solar panel, which: 1) is one-third the weight of a standard glass panel; 2) can be supplied in custom form factors to meet specific mission requirements; 3) is made from standard components and can be produced in large volumes; 4) is rugged enough to sustain over-land transportation on rough roads, repeated setup and take-down and impacts from high powered rounds; 5) it can be deployed more quickly than a standard solar panel; and 6) is cost-competitive with standard panels. Over the past several years, in discussions with groups like the Army Rapid Equipping Force, US Navy Research Labs and multiple suppliers to the Army and USMC, we have concluded that we have a unique solution that meets critical unmet needs for DOD, particularly when it comes to weight, adaptability, durability and cost. Our organization also brings skills in engineering and design to solve last-mile problems to ensure full value of the solar panel is delivered in a wide array of operating environments.
