The NRL TacSat-4 Satellite was launched into a highly elliptical orbit on September 27th 2011. The solar panels are populated with Emcore ATJ cells. The solar panel was predicted to degrade 25% over the first year. Flight data show that the actual degradation is exceeding this prediction. Ground testing was conducted to more accurately determine the… CONTINUE READING
