Alta Devices New Generation Solar Cell Empowers Autonomy for BVLOS UAV Operations

Exhibition and discussion of the technology, materials, and business issues surrounding commercial UAVs and solar technology. This will include details about the recent introduction of Alta Devices Gen4 solar cell technology and displays of solar panels, UAV innovations and wing segments.

Alta Devices will feature an ongoing presentation in its booth discussing the question: “Is your UAV ready for BVLOS?”

Innovative UAV designs need solar power to match. Lightweight, thin and flexible gallium-arsenide solar cells from Alta Devices enable designs that are not possible with other solar technologies. Alta cells provide a new level of mechanical and design flexibility for the UAV industry due to their high power-density combined with the ability to bend around curved surfaces. Alta Devices is the world-record holder for single junction solar cell efficiency at 28.9%. The newest generation product from Alta demonstrates a significant weight reduction from the previous version resulting in an improved power to weight ratio.
