Abstract : The main activities on the Flexible Rolled-Up Solar Array (FRUSA) program during the reporting period consisted of drawing release of all the FRUSA subsystem components, with the exception of the power electronics and storage, and startup of manufacturing of the development/qualification model. The solar cells required for the qualification model have been received and wired into the required cell groups ready for bonding, together with the balnks, to the solar panel. The storage drum is in the final stage of fabrication, and the small and large housings for the orientation mechanism are ready for final processing prior to start of assembly. (Author)
