Demonstration Power Beaming System Delivered to the US Army

Lighthouse DEV, LLC has just completed delivery of a demonstration power beaming system to the US Army at Aberdeen Proving Ground, Maryland. This system will allow the Command, Power, and Integration Directorate of the US Army’s CERDEC to investigate the benefits and potential of laser-based eye-safe wireless power transfer systems. This effort also lays the groundwork for future collaboration between Lighthouse DEV, LLC and the US Army.

Power Beaming Techniques for NASA’s Centennial Challenge

This white paper was presented during the Energy Scavenging session at the GOMACTech2010 conference in Reno, NV.

It presents concepts for power beaming (wireless power delivery using light) as applied to the 2009 NASA Centennial Challenge and our specific approach. Extending our design to alternate power beaming is presented, extending to longer distances and other beam characteristics such as divergence, power, and wavelength of operation.
