Abstract: We have made outstanding progress in the Base Phase towards achieving the final NASA Research Announcement (NRA) goals. Progress is better than anticipated due to the lighter than predicted mass of the IMM solar cells. We look forward to further improvements in the IMM cell performance during Option I and Option II; so, we have confidence that the first four items listed in the table will improve to better than the NRA goals. The computation of the end of life blanket efficiency is uncertain because we have extrapolated the radiation damage from room temperature measurements. The last three items listed in the Table were not intended to be accomplished during the Base Phase; they will be achieved during Option I and Option II.
