A Secret Space Plane is Carrying a Solar Experiment to Orbit

IECL's Ian Cash talks to about the anticipated launch of the US Air Force's secret space plane, X-37B, for a long-duration mission in low Earth orbit.

'CASSIOPeiA – A New SPS Concept'

Ian Cash, of SICA Design Ltd (design arm of IECL), presented a new Solar Power Satellite (SPS) concept during the Space Solar Power Workshop of the IEEE WiSEE conference held in Montreal.

'Space-based solar power: the new space race'

Today’s agenda for space is no longer focused on merely getting there. The modern space race is about getting the engineering in place to exploit space-based solar power (SBSP). But how will energy be beamed back down to Earth without breaking the bank?

'Space race to power the final frontier'

There is currently a big buzz around space-based solar power (SBSP) in R&D departments and space agencies around the world. The reality of affordable, safe SBSP seems to be getting closer by the day, and there are a number of different systems in development that have the potential to deliver SBSP within a couple of decades…

'New Under the Sun: Power-beaming CASSIOPeiA Satellite'

A new Solar Power Satellite (SPS) concept has been advocated and dubbed CASSIOPeiA, short for Constant Aperture, Solid-State, Integrated, Orbital Phased Array)...
