MicroLink Devices in partnership with the Air Force Research Center at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base and UES, Inc. has demonstrated the integration of MicroLink's lightweight, high-efficiency, solar panels onto a small unmanned aircraft system (SUAS) platform. MicroLink's novel solar panels are based on MicroLink's large-area inverted metamorphic multi-junction (IMM) solar cells fabricated through the epitaxial lift-off (ELO) process. These lightweight solar panels were integrated to Raven UAVs and flown demonstrating a 60 percent increases in flight endurance and showing promise for a 100 percent improvement over systems currently in use.
