As­cent So­lar, Silent Fal­con and Bye Aero­space part­ner for so­lar-pow­ered UAS


As­cent So­lar Tech­nolo­gies, Inc. (ASTI) an­nounced it is col­lab­o­rat­ing with Silent Fal­con UAS Tech­nolo­gies and Bye Aero­space to pro­vide its light­weight, flex­i­ble cop­per-in­dium-gal­lium-dis­e­lenide (CIGS) pho­to­voltaics to power the Silent Fal­con un­manned aerial sys­tem (UAS).

Silent Fal­con is a small tac­ti­cal UAS drone de­signed to be eas­ily car­ried and used for longer-du­ra­tion in­tel­li­gence, sur­veil­lance and re­con­nais­sance (ISR) mis­sions. Silent Fal­con rep­re­sents the syn­ergy of sev­eral new tech­nolo­gies, in­clud­ing ASTI’s flex­i­ble pho­to­voltaic mod­ules, to pro­vide a near silent, rapidly de­ployed plat­form that has mul­ti­ple mil­i­tary and civil­ian ap­pli­ca­tions. With three wing con­fig­u­ra­tions avail­able for dif­fer­ent mis­sion pro­files, each Silent Fal­con sys­tem could rep­re­sent up to 30 mod­ules.
