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.
