A preliminary analysis of orbital flight data, ground-test data, and correlation of orbital and ground-test results from a flat plate solar thermoelectric generator orbital experiment are presented. The small thermnoelectric panels used were fabricated and ground tested by General Atomic and placed into orbit from Vandenberg AFB by Space Systems Division, USAF. The entire program was conducted for and under the cognizance of Aeronautical Systems Division, USAF.
