Kvant is in charge for the realization of the Solar Arrays that will provide energy to the satellites of the Ionozond constellation (Russian Federation), which is intended for the measurement of the ionosphere geophysical parameters and the monitoring of the upper atmosphere and near-Earth space.
What we have done
CESI is in charge for the production of the 10,000 CTJ 28% Triple junction InGaP/InGaAs/Ge bare solar cells, 27% minimum average efficiency, which Kvant will use as “building bricks” for the manufacture of Ionozond’s solar arrays.
Our Multi Junction space solar cells are fully qualified for Low Earth Orbit (LEO) and Geostationary Earth Orbit (GEO), and are manufactured using proprietary and innovative know-how. CESI’s Triple Junction space solar cells have been demonstrated to have 30% efficiency, and have already been used to power more than 60 satellites for over 25 different countries. CESI is currently investing in Research & Development for Four Junction new generation solar cells.
