Precision Engineering.
Pioneering Design.
Developed at Sandia National Laboratories and rigorously field- and flight-tested and proven, DragonSCALES™ is the world’s most advanced ultra-light, ultra-adaptable silicon solar cell solution. The technology, performance-engineered for affordability and built to last, supplies customized, scalable solar power to the most demanding applications in the most remote and extreme locations.

As we continue to populate our satellite constellations, DragonSCALES™ will provide a viable and proven solution for powering the world’s first commercial cell tower in space.

DragonSCALES™ is designed for high-volume, fully automated, turnkey manufacturing and maximum economies of scale, with lower production, operation, and integration costs than other solar solutions.

Patented architecture uses easy-to-handle, low-cost, readily available equipment and materials and inherently integrated wiring. This enables scalability at speed, and fast, unlimited, economical customization. 

But none of this compromises performance. DragonSCALES has the physical durability, electrical resilience, and radiation recovery capabilities to ensure long life… even in the harshest environments. 

Fortifying the integrity of your mission like never before.
