We use modern laser technology to provide power to satellites, from Earth.

Electric power systems can take up more than 25% of the cost, weight and volume of a satellite. Power requirements are often underestimated, and the depth of discharge in battery charge cycling can severely limit the life of LEO satellites.

 

Our Mission

  • Enable the next generation of satellite technology by improving power budgets.

  • Decrease cost and complexity of satellite mission design, opening access to space.

  • Increase longevity of existing satellites by smoothing the load on battery systems, reducing the depth of discharge cycles.

objectives

  • Increase Orbit Average Power (OAP) from the current 20-30% to above 40%

  • Partner with satellite operators to perform testing with flight-ready hardware

  • Test our methods on active satellites, proving our laboratory concepts
