The proposed innovation is to define and implement/prototype a parametric model for unbundled power systems for propulsion and/or sustained free-flyer/surface operations. This leads to a technology development mission on ISS and subsequent flight opportunities that can make efficient and effective use of beamed energy for propulsion and/or sustained operations.
Commercial space applications include mission enhancing and/or mission enabling expansion of operational mission time as well as out- bound orbital trajectory insertion propulsion.
Successful demonstration of Space-to-space power beaming paves the way for application of the technology for propulsion and free-flyer/surface lunar/asteroid surface applications by reducing the cost, schedule, and technical risk. The development, marketing, and infusion of the SBSP technology for space-to-space and space-to-NEO applications is a prospective joint venture project with Barnhard Associates, LLC (BALLC) and a number of other interested parties.
