Current business activity is focused on engineering development and marketing of a range of innovative designs for folding solar arrays for high-power mobile PV generators and utility-scale PV powerplants. We completed design and manufacturing activity for a solar PV project at Kennedy Space Center in Florida. For this project, we provided manufacturing drawings and engineering support for a new concept portable power system which uses our structural products to provide for compact stowage, transport and quick deployment of arrays of photovoltaic panels.
