Solar Array Panel (SAP) and Solar Array Wing

Solar array panels generate electric power for satellite operation. Compared to products for terrestrial use, these panels are lighter, more efficient, have a longer service life, and are more resistant to cosmic radiation.

Solar Array Panel

  • It holds 40% of global market share
  • Long-term purchase agreement with major satellite manufacturers in US and Europe
  • No failure reported over 1000 panels in orbit since the first flight in 1997

Solar Array Wing

  • Flight heritage of Solar Array Wings for nine DS2000* satellites
  • No failure reported in orbit since the first flight in 2003

* DS2000: MELCO satellite standard bus


Structural Panel & Heat Pipe Panel

Heat pipe panels diffuse heat generated in satellite by transferring it to components that dissipate it. Their function is to maintain a steady temperature inside the satellite.

Aluminum Panels CFRP (*) Panels

  • Over 100 satellites launched including the global operator's programs such as Intelsat, Eutelsat and SES equipped with MELCO structural panels
  • Holds more than 30% of global market share
  • Long-Term Purchase Agreement with major satellite manufacturer in US
  • No failure reported ever over 9000 panels in orbit

Deployable Radiator

  • Flight heritage of deployable radiator for Japanese domestic satellite achieved in 2006

Lithium-Ion Batteries (LIB)

Lithium-ion batteries store electric power generated by the solar array panels. They weigh roughly half as much as conventional batteries with the same capacity.

  • Since 2003, over 100 batteries and 1200 cells flown to space for the global operator's programs such as Intelsat, Eutelsat and SES
  • Holds more than 35% of global market share
  • Long-Term Purchase Agreement with major satellite manufacturers in US and Europe
  • No failure reported on all of batteries and cells in orbit with accumulated operation period of more than 100 years-satellites in space
  • High energy density, low mass and small volume
