Contract: HQ0006-04-C-7055
Award Amount: $100,000.00
 

Abstract:

Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) proposes to develop a wireless power transmission system for the high altitude airship. The system will use a ground-based high power laser and photovoltaic receivers on the airship. Wireless power transmission has the potential for highly reliable, light weight power delivery to the airship. Power densities greater than 10 kilowatts per kilogram are possible. The wireless power transmission system could provide supplemental power to the airship during periods of high power demand or limited solar power availability. In this SBIR Phase I effort, we will work with the HAA prime contractors to demonstrate technical feasibility of the power transmission system. We will establish the system specifications and design a first generation prototype. In Phase II, we will build, test and deliver a wireless power transmission prototype, which can be mounted on a high altitude airship. In Phase III, we will supply wireless power transmission systems for the HAA as well as other military and space applications.
