Space Power to develop first commercial LASER power beaming technology for space-based application.
Space Power has signed up to the national SPRINT (SPace Research and Innovation Network for Technology) business support programme. The funding will enable Space Power to collaborate with the University of Surrey on a space infrastructure project that will support the company’s plans to develop the first in-orbit laser-based power beaming demonstration outside of a governmental organisation by 2023, with full commercialisation by 2025.
Space Power’s long term vision is to create a global in-orbit wireless power grid in LEO - improving baseline efficiency, sustainably. We can see the demand for more power growing exponentially from existing and emerging sectors such as space tourism, IoT constellations and exploratory missions to the Moon and Mars.
