Solar Arrays Case Study

Helping Shrink Size, Delivery Time, and Cost

One customer needs a 2kW solar array to power an ESPA-class satellite mission that has never been flown by the U.S. government or any government. Another customer needs dozens of 130W arrays to power a commercial constellation of CubeSats that will gather groundbreaking weather forecasting information…and they need the first flight units in six months.

These are the power system challenges we receive regularly from customers who are boldly forging enabling satellite missions with a new generation of small satellite payloads and electric propulsion systems.

We take the time to learn what our customers need and then work closely with them to engineer impactful solutions…if we don’t already have something at-the-ready!

Refreshing the typical aerospace approach

  • Making arrays faster, better, and cheaper requires close collaboration with our customers.
  • We’ve proven we can shrink the size and the cost with arrays that can still survive “the rough ride” into space.
  • Our solutions don’t force you to choose between quality and performance over being on time and in budget.
  • While it can take some companies over 18 months, Roccor’s agile engineering and supplier agreements allow us to have some arrays ready in six to nine months.
  • Our high-strength composite technology is a powerful part of our discriminating design solutions.
  • Our solar arrays are designed in parallel to the spacecraft to meet mission goals and all requirements for all sub systems.
  • We want to create a product that enables your success.
