The main area of JSC “Precizika-MET SC” activities – solar cell manufacturing process technologies. The company has launched first Lithuanian pilot solar cells production line in its Industrial Photovoltaic Laboratory. The equipment, installed in the Laboratory, together with advanced test and measurement equipment enables to master and successfully commercialize fundamental technologies created in scientific research institutions, thus ensuring that only commercially and cost effective technological solutions, already perfected in the laboratory, would be implemented into production.

pv-2

R&D direction includes monocrystalline silicon solar cell research and development of new technologies. Equipment in the laboratory are projected up to 1 million solar cells annual production capacity. Thus the technical and economic benefits of technological solutions can be evaluated. Other direction of the laboratory activities – services related to development of technological processes and production of the experimental samples of solar cells. The company can offer equipment, know-how and highly qualified staff to customer.

TV3_Misija_Lituanica_80_Logo-1

On Feb 28, 2014 nanosatellite LitSat-1, made by the joint team of Lithuanian Space Association, Space Science and Technology Institute and Kaunas University of Technology (KTU), was launched into the orbit. According to the agreement with the U.S. company NANORACKS LLC, LitSat-1 was carried to the International Space Station by Orbital Cygnus resupply mission at Jan 9, 2014 and was launched into the space by robotic arm from Japanese Kibo module.

The main goal of this satellite project, named Mission Lituanica 80 being one of the two first Lithuanian Cubesats, is to perform the test flight and verification of all system components and collect the attitude determination data by gyro, magnetic, solar sensors and GPS receiver. These data will be used in the next Cubesat mission aiming to verify piezoelectric actuators of active satellite attitude control in 2016.
