Constant Aperture, Solid-State, Integrated, Orbital Phased Array:

CASSIOPeiA

HIGH GAIN ANTENNAE FOR WIRELESS POWER TRANSFER & COMMUNICATIONS

Unlike existing designs, CASSIOPeiA is a phased array with negligible mechanical pointing requirements - a high-gain antenna yet with omnidirectional coverage and 100% array utilisation.

 

CASSIOPeiA Applications:

SPACE BASED
SOLAR POWER

Previously considered economically non-viable, CASSIOPeiA’s outstanding specific power, when combined with upcoming low-cost reusable launch and minimal energy storage requirement (24/365 delivery), challenges the extreme cost of grid-scale storage necessary as terrestrial wind, solar and other intermittent renewables continue to grow.

CASSIOPeiA can be launched onto various orbits to collect sunlight and efficiently convert it to a safe beam of microwaves, directed to a terrestrial rectifying antenna ('Rectenna'), feeding into the local power grid.

 

This is a renewable, carbon-free system that could augment and eventually replace traditional terrestrial power stations, de-risking the pathway to Net Zero.

SATELLITE
APPLICATIONS

CASSIOPeiA provides a high-gain, yet omnidirectional antenna - so communications can be maintained for attitudes outside the steering range of other high-gain antennas (such as for space telescopes of VLEO "SkimSats"), including recovery from complete loss of satellite attitude control. 

STRATOSPHERIC
POWER
TRANSFER

Air to ground microwave power transfer, offering predictability irrespective of weather and location, using both existing and planned stratospheric platforms. 

 

The platform attitude can be optimized for solar collection, without regard to typical phased array pointing. 

 

Uses include emergency relief and strategic energy clients.

AERIAL
POWER
TRANSFER

Power transfer to and from aerial platforms, including drones, tethered balloons and airships.

WHY SOLAR?

“We should be using Nature's inexhaustible sources of energy: sun, wind and tide. I'd put my money on the sun and solar energy. What a source of power! ”​
