  • The Silent Falcon sUAS is a versatile system capable of performing a wide variety of missions requiring long endurance, long range and undetectable flight. Here are a few ideal applications for the Silent Falcon. In all cases, using an unmanned aircraft is safer and more economical than sending a person into the mission.

  • ASTI recently announced a big breakthrough in the solar space, specifically in space and in near-space applications. In these applications, lightweight and high performance solar panels are very important. With that said, ASTI recently achieved a record 1,700 watts of power produced per kilogram of weight. As a result, future solar panels made for in space and near space applications can now weigh up to 60% less than conventional solar options for these applications!

  • Ascent Solar Technologies (Nasdaq: ASTI) announced that its flexible, lightweight PV modules were selected by VanguardSpace Technologies (Vanguard) for their NASA Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) program. The NASA program is intended to develop an economical, lightweight alternative to existing and emerging high-cost solar arrays for high-power space applications.
  • Vanguard will utilize proprietary space environment protection technology along with automated manufacturing approaches to create an ultra-thin, high power-to-weight ratio, large space solar array. These arrays will be enabled by Ascent’s flexible copper-indium-gallium-selenium (CIGS) technology; Ascent will leverage their experience with space-based solar products to provide space-optimized variants of their production PV.

Flexible Solar - The Revolution
  • Ascent Solar's manufacturing process is based around CIGS (copper-indium-gallium-selenide) depositited onto a polyimide (plastic) substrate.
  • This process is what enables Ascent's solar panels to be so incredibly flexible and durable while remaining extremely efficient.

Ascent’s high-efficiency modules provide the transformational ability to generate power anywhere, anytime.  And this is great for military applications!

With defense spending set to double under President Donald J Trump (540,000 soldiers, 350 Navy ships,  1200 aircraft), will the military further utilize ASTI 's solar technology solutions?

-- The Breakthrough in Solar Panel Technology --

After two decades of research and development, Ascent Solar was formed in 2005, to commercialize leading-edge CIGS photovoltaic technology on flexible, plastic substrate.

Ascent’s unique monolithic integration process enables the highest level of efficiency, durability & weight savings representing the potential to transform the way solar power can be used in everyday life. Ascent Solar’s Research and Development and its 30 MW nameplate production facility is in Thornton, Colorado.

By pioneering a technology that is recognized as the future of the solar industry, Ascent has cemented itself as the leader in the manufacturing of innovative, high performance, flexible thin-film solar panels for both existing and emerging defense, consumer electronic, off-grid, transportation and building applications.

Ascent’s results-oriented team is focused on continued technical innovation while effectively developing current market opportunities and enabling customers to create transformational applications using solar power.


Rugged. Portable. Solar Powered. Using Ascent Solar’s award-winning, patented CIGS flexible solar technology, EnerPlex is your ultimate portable power solution for any situation you may encounter. Whether on top of a mountain or in the boardroom, EnerPlex will always keep you powered up and in charge.

the MilPak™ E has also been selected to present to the U.S. Military, Corporate, and Investment Leadership at the Defense Energy Innovation Summit and Showcase on December 1-3, 2015 in Austin, Texas.
The MilPak™ E is a fully integrated mobile power solution that includes a foldable photovoltaic blanket with an attached waterproof battery case that houses a maximum peak power tracker, 86.5 watt hours of power storage with battery management circuitry, a 55 watt 24 volt power circuit, and two high-current USB circuits.
In keeping with the ruggedized requirements, all switchgear, protection circuit, and the 24V and USB connectors are all rated IP-67 or better, and the case is constructed from a military-grade plastic. Most important, the entire unit weighs in at less than 8.5 pounds (3.8 kg) which makes it extremely portable by military or other users.
This product is the first to introduce the MilPak™ platform to the military, first responders, disaster relief workers and other users who want to reduce the number of components they required to take in the field and take advantage of solar power.
