Hello William,

> ... light weight deployable solar panels

There is work on university cubesats in progress on light weight deployable
solar panels. It is being discussed at the Cubesat Workshop this week ...


... and scroll down to the selection for "Implementation of Deployable Solar
Panels on a 1U CubeSat" by Abhishek Bajpayee at the University of Louisiana.

NextGen CubeSat Program (a partnership with AMSAT, IBM, and Binghamton
University engineering students) has said one of their goals would be
deployable solar cells. Likely more update on this project at the AMSAT
Forum in Dayton.
