A couple days ago Ascent Solar (ASTI) announced its thin film solar PV modules will be used in the development of a hybrid unmanned aerial vehicle called the Silent Sentinel built by Bye Aerospace.  The high efficiency, quiet vehicle will be used primarily for military operations but could be included for civil use as well. 

Charlie Johnson, Chief Operating Officer of Bye Aerospace, said the Silent Sentinel is a robust, long-range UAV that will incorporate several proprietary clean energy features. “Ultimately, it will provide advanced tactical reconnaissance functionality while utilizing a uniquely long endurance, highly capable tactical sensor platform that is operationally stealthy and cost-effective to operate. The unique characteristics of the Ascent Solar flexible modules allow us to design this UAV to become very energy efficient.”
