How to Use

Bolt-On Frame

Source has successfully incorporated Solar Modules into bolt-on products in support of multiple flight customers. This approach incorporates a 'picture frame' around the perimeter of the solar module to achieve a bolted interface between the module and the spacecraft. The design is compatible with Source’s Gen 1 modules, and the approach has successfully flown with customers on multiple Transporter launches.  If a bolt-on interface is of interest to you, please reach out to Source to discuss your specific application.

Direct to Honeycomb Bond

For mass sensitive customers, bonding Source’s Solar Modules directly to a composite sandwich panel is a very attractive solution.  Source’s team of technical experts are happy to work with you as you develop a direct bond solution that supports your unique mission goals.  If you are interested in this type of solution, please reach out to us for more information.

Easy Bond Solutions

If your team doesn’t have time (or bandwidth) to develop a direct bond solution, Source has developed an easy bond interface that makes a bonded integration approach very simple.  This pre-installed pad makes the modules easy to handle and integrate, and offers our customers several benefits:

  • Minimal Process Development
  • Improved Handleability 
  • Increased Compatibility with Different Backing Materials

The easy bond interface allows integration onto high-CTE (e.g. aluminum) support panels, mounting of the solar panels over heads of fasteners, across open gaps, and across wires and electrical harnessing.
