Abstract
Continued advancements in wireless technology have led to an environment that is increasingly littered with stray radio frequency energy. The utility of a system that is capable of reclaiming this stray energy for future use is unlimited. We propose the use of a genetically engineered antenna/rectifier (rectenna) system to capture the available stray energy and transform it into a form suitable to battery charging. The final product of the proposed research will be a cost effective low profile rectenna system that is specifically designed to take advantage of the RF energy sources available in the Navy fleet.
