Encrypted Self-Targeting Energy Beams for Power Transmission Designed for Satellite and Space Habitat Applications, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

The NASA has identified the need to increase availability of Power as a Top Technical Challenge. This STTR proposal suggests novel approaches for the wireless energy transmission for use by satellite, spacecraft in orbit, or by space habitats. NASA's planned earth orbiting spacecraft, planetary spacecraft, Cube Sats, Small Sats, balloons, aircraft, surface assets, and marine craft and UAVs as observation platforms can benefit from such successful wireless energy transmission technology. The advanced power transmission technology and receiving concepts proposed are based on the principles and system design for Aperiodic HF EM waves based power transfer, which are not absorbed by dense matter, including organic matter and water. The success in this STTR would enable and enhance the capabilities of NASA mission hardware and offer operational flexibilities with significant savings in the overall costs along with the weight savings due to reduction in needed harness weight.
