Abstract

The low earth orbital (LEO) durability of Space Station Freedom (SSF) solar array materials and surfaces is evaluated using results from the Long Duration Exposure Facility (LDEF), ground laboratory simulation tests, and Monte Carlo modeling. These results indicate that thin-film SiOx protective coatings are adequately durable to atomic oxygen, ultraviolet (UV) radiation, thermal cycling, and micrometeroid or debris impact.
