Albuquerque-based mPower Technologies’ new DragonSCALES solar-cell material will power up a small satellite scheduled for launch into low-Earth orbit in December.

It’s the first in-space test for mPower’s technology, which weaves tiny solar cells about the width of a human hair into a flexible, lightweight mesh that could substantially lower the costs for powering up spacecraft. The company is partnering with Sparkwing – a division of the global, space-focused solar technology firm Airbus Defense and Space Netherlands B.V. – to test and evaluate DragonSCALES for possible integration into future Sparkwing solar arrays.
