Deployable solar panels for 3U and 6U satellites
The NanoPower Deployable Solar Panel (DSP) is designed to fit on the side of a 3U or 6U satellites. It is composed of three panels connected with spring loaded hinges.
During launch the panels are folded to the side of the satellite inside the deployment pod. Once in space a release system deploys the panels.
The DSP comes in two versions, a 135° and a 90°, both can be mounted on a 3U or a 6U structure. Each version consist of a mounting panel for attaching to the spacecraft structure and 2 deployable panels covered with solar cells. The number of deployable panels are mainly restricted by the available space inside the deployers.
