A flexible solar skin which absorbs radiant solar energy to convert it into electricity, made possible through a conductive plastic, which conceals a conductive fiber, whereby the fiber directs generated electricity to a terminal in the form of a contact strip hemmed or fused alongside the material. Additionally, an air vehicle covered with this photovoltaic material to collect solar radiant energy during flight which is converted into electricity to assist the propulsion system of the vehicle.
A flexible solar skin which comprises a knitted carbon or magnesium fiber coated with a photovoltaic material comprising a conductive polymer, said solar skin being adapted for lining the outer surfaces of zeppelins or airplanes. An airplane which includes the flexible solar skin of claim 1 covering at least a portion of the outer surface thereof and connected to a battery which in turn activates an impulse motor thereby to propel the airplane.
