Space Systems/Loral (SS/L) successfully completed electrostatic discharge (ESD) tests of Multi-junction (MJ) GaAs/Ge solar array design in geosynchronous space environment. This ESD test was based on ISO-11221, Space systems - Space solar panels -Spacecraft Charging Induced Electrostatic Discharge Test Methods. In addition to the ISO reference for the test(More)
A set of multijunction GaAs/Ge solar array test coupons provided by Space Systems/Loral was subjected to a sequence of five-year increments of combined space environmental exposure tests. The test coupons capture an integrated design intended for use in a geosynchronous (GEO) space environment. A key component of this test campaign is performing(More)
The purpose of this test program is to understand the changes and degradation of the space solar array panel components, including its electrostatic discharge (ESD) mitigation design features in their integrated form, after multiple years (up to 15) of simulated Earth geosynchronous (GEO) space environment.
