Abstract:

The Picosatellite Solar Cell PSSC Testbed flight experiment is designed to obtain space environment degradation data for advanced solar cells. The purpose of the first flight ISS orbit is to develop and operationally test the picosatellite and associated ground station. Subsequent flights will be in a Geosynchronous Transfer Orbit, which will provide accelerated radiation degradation data for missions to geosynchronous orbit.
