Tethered VTOL Comms Relay Powered by Laser over Fiber
Analyze a tethered VTOL system capable of carrying and maintaining the required communications relay components to at least 500 feet AGL for up to four days continuously. The VTOL and comms relay package receive power delivered using laser power from the surface vehicle over fiber optic cable and converted into electricity on-board the VTOL craft via photovoltaics. Such a system is smaller, lighter weight, and much easier to deploy and recover than any lighter than air solution (aerostat).
