Abstract/Summary:


This work reports on the first results of a new concept for a flexible blanket based on weaving technology, which could potentially be employed as a carrier structure for the photovoltaic assembly (PVA) within a flexible solar array (SA) architecture. Though further away from current proposed solutions, the promising potential of such a weaving approach is describing the creation of an electrically functional and integrated flexible carrier with minimal weight and stowage volume.
