This paper presents the activities performed by the Solar Energy Department of the Argentinean Commission for Atomic Energy related with the manufacturing, qualification and testing of solar panels for small satellites mission. In particular, the complete process of solar panel integration is described and also the techniques of mechanical inspection and power generation, in order to assess the solar panels quality, are presented. Finally telemetry data of power generation from the last space missions Nu-Sat 1&2 of Satellogic Corp. (our main customer) are analyzed and conclusions are presented.
