Abstract

THE NEED FOR A LONG ENDURANCE AIRCRAFT WHICH REQUIRES NO REFUELLING AND CAN PROVIDE SURVEILLANCE FOR NAVAL TASK GROUPS HAS BECOME EVIDENT. THE PROPOSED AIRCRAFT FOR THIS APPLICATION IS A MICROWAVE POWERED HALE PLANE. WITH THE USE OF MICROWAVE POWER BEAMING THE AIRCRAFT CAN BE CONTINUOUSLY ENERGIZED WHICH WOULD ALLOW MISSION DURATIONS OF MONTHS. THIS FIRST PHASE OF THE RESEARCH PROJECT WILL DETERMINE THE FEASIBILITY OF SUCH AN AIRCRAFT AND THE ASSOCIATED MICROWAVE POWER BEAMING SYSTEM. TECHNOLOGY DEFICIENCIES WILL BE INDICATED WHICH WILL PROVIDE THE BASIS FOR FURTHER WORK IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE HALE AIRCRAFT.
