    Ascent Solar to Provide CIGS Module to Silent Falcon System

    Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. announced today it is collaborating with Silent Falcon UAS Technologies and Bye Aerospace to provide its lightweight, flexible copper-indium-gallium-diselenide (CIGS) photovoltaics to power the Silent Falcon™ unmanned aerial system (UAS). Silent Falcon™ is a small tactical UAS drone designed to be easily carried and used for longer-duration intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) missions. Recently unveiled at the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) conference in Las Vegas, Silent Falcon™ represents the synergy of several new technologies, including ASTI's flexible photovoltaic modules, to provide a near silent, rapidly deployed platform that has multiple military and civilian applications. With three wing configurations available for different mission profiles, each Silent Falcon™ system could represent up to 30 modules.

    Sunways: Possible Return to Profit Zone from 2014 Onwards

    The Sunways Group believes it will again be able to generate operating profits from 2014 onwards. This improvement of the financial situation is to be achieved mainly through sales and cost synergies resulting from the intensified cooperation with the Chinese LDK Solar Group. Following the public takeover offer, LDK Solar Germany Holding GmbH is the new majority shareholder of the Konstanz-based photovoltaics manufacturer. "At present, we have to cope with individual but mostly also with industry-related structural problems. The pace of consolidation in the photovoltaics industry has accelerated significantly", said Michael Wilhelm, CEO of Sunways, at the company's general meeting held in Singen today. Wilhelm explained the reasons for the major losses incurred in the fiscal 2011 but also emphasized: "Due to the partnership with the LDK Solar Group, the prospects of the technology specialist Sunways are much better than they would be under a stand-alone strategy. In terms of operating profit, we plan to report black figures again in 2014."
