Alta holds both the single-junction and dual-junction cell solar efficiency world records at 28.8% and 31.6% respectively. That translates to an unmatched power density of over 250 W/m2.
With a mass of around 240 g/m2, saying our cells are light weight may be an understatement considering they weigh 20x less than a sheet of paper.
AeroVironment’s Puma is a small unmanned aircraft system (UAS) designed to be hand launched. Typically the Puma only has an endurance of 2-3 hours.
With Alta Devices’ technology, AeroVironment has the ability to increase the Puma fly time by 6-7 hours — to over 9 hours. Now they can ensure all-day surveillance that can help save lives.
