StarMax is a flexible-use space station module designed to be a key building block for next generation commercial space stations. With a diameter of 7.6m, a height of 9.8m, and a volume of 400m³, the StarMax possesses nearly half the volume of the ISS in one module. The StarMax form factor is designed to come in a variety of diameters, which will allow it to fit on most next generation launch vehicles.

Gravitics has selected mPower Technology, Inc.’s DragonSCALES as the solar power solution for our StarMax space station modules. DragonSCALES solar modules are composed of a completely flexible, lightweight, debris-resistant, and interconnected mesh of high-efficiency silicone solar cells.
