About us

Sparkwing is the outcome of a challenge we took on to create a off-the-shelf solar array solution for small satellites: to bring most value for money, offer short lead times and provide easy integration. By teaming up with DHV technology for their PVA expertise and Airborne Aerospace as substrate manufacturer, we have realized a product that fulfills small satellite power needs.

Sparkwing is a product of Airbus Defence and Space Netherlands (Airbus DS NL). Our product has its foundation built on 40 years’ worth of experience providing satellites with power. Since 1979, more than 85 space missions have flown or are flying with Airbus DS NL’s solar arrays, all of which successfully deployed in space and perform as expected.

Team
