The American army wants to get into service a system that can transmit the energy received by spacecraft to the earth. A research contract on this topic has been concluded with Northrop Grumman, an American corporation.


The US Army ordered the development of a system for transmitting electricity from space


The US Air Force Research Laboratory and Northrop Grumman Corporation have entered into an agreement to develop and build equipment for wireless transmission of energy from spacecraft. The work will be conducted as part of the SSPIDR (Space Solar Power Incremental Demonstrations and Research) program. The corporation has already received a little more than 100 million dollars for work.

Within the framework of this project, the corporation should create a spacecraft with highly efficient solar panels, which will be able to collect solar energy, convert it into radio wave radiation and transmit it to the earth, where special receivers must receive it and convert it to electricity. Accordingly, the development of receivers and energy converters will also be carried out within the framework of this project by specialists of the corporation.

Project details were not disclosed. The U.S. Army plans to use technology for the uninterrupted generation of electricity for field camps or outposts in remote places (mountains, deserts, etc.), where it is difficult to deliver mobile generators and other equipment that can generate electricity.

Energy is a strategic advantage and potential vulnerability for our state and the Ministry of Defense. To ensure the success of the missions of the Ministry of Defense, we must have the necessary energy at the right time and place

- said laboratory director Colonel Eric Felt.

Earlier it was reported that the U.S. Navy Research Laboratory completed the second phase of testing a laser power transmission system, during which tests 400 watts of power were successfully transmitted using an infrared laser over a distance of 325 meters.

        But what we have ...

        MOSCOW, November 2 - RIA Novosti. Roscosmos terminated the contract with the Khrunichev Center for the production of the Angara-1.2 launch vehicle, according to the materials at the disposal of RIA Novosti.
        The contract worth more than two billion rubles was signed on July 25. The rocket was supposed to be ready by October 15, 2021. It was intended for launching the Gonets-M satellites numbered 33, 34 and 35 into orbit.
        According to the materials, the contract was terminated on October 30 by the decision of Roscosmos. The reasons for this step were not reported.
        In early June, it became known about the problems with the production of Angara missiles. As reported, the Omsk PO Polet (subsidiary of the Khrunichev Center) misses the deadline: the production schedule lagged from three months (Angara-A5) to a year (Angara-1.2). From January to May, the company did not fulfill the plan, employees were deprived of their bonuses.

          Things are tight in Omsk. There, in fact, after global stagnation, they are doing everything from scratch, production has been fully launched and there are few specialists. But they do. And the second stage of the Angara with great delay all the same passed.
          Plus, Khrunichev himself is not particularly happy in the transfer of mass production to Omsk.

          Only the stated goals are nonsense, in my opinion.
          Within the framework of this project, the corporation should create a spacecraft with highly efficient solar panels, which will be able to collect solar energy, convert it into radio wave radiation and transmit it to the earth, where special receivers must receive it and convert it to electricity.
          It is also necessary to accurately position the beam from wild distances. And / or the receiver must be a gigantic area.

        Bullshit. Directional microwave radiation of high power, just arrange on the ground, something of a local microwave oven. How are they going to focus the beam? What power should a satellite be in order to transmit energy, at least 100 kW, to the ground? There was such a project in 1947, where the "too smart" offered to lay cables under the asphalt and, using high-frequency currents, transmit energy directly to the car. They calculated the energy losses and shed tears. Just cut the budget. ! 00 million, this is just the beginning.

      In practice, this means one thing - no power lines, no bulky solar panels, no windmills ...

      To transmit 5 GW of power from space, a transmitter in space must have a diameter of about 1 km, and a receiver on Earth - more than 10 km.
      This is the transmission of microwave waves of the microwave range with subsequent conversion (on Earth) into e / energy.
      The Japanese (at the laboratory level) converted sunlight into laser radiation, which was then converted into e / energy.
      But this option on an industrial scale is even more complicated.

          Well, for the sake of truth, the night in geostationary orbit lasts much less than at a point on Earth under the satellite, in the worst case for a satellite - 10 times.
          The farther the satellite is from the Earth, the less time it is in its shadow.
          But in certain latitudes and time of year, there will be no night on the satellite at all.

    This is just illiterate nonsense. In order to transfer a power of 1 GW from one orbit to the Earth (one nuclear power unit), it will be necessary to install solar panels with an area of ​​more than 100 square meters in orbit. It is 000 x 000 kilometers. A portrait of Trump on such a battery will be visible to the naked eye, even with very poor eyesight.

What can this give the Americans the transfer of electricity from space. You can fantasize a lot.

    Here we are talking about the properties of laser radiation in the atmosphere.
    This- explains that the loss in the atmosphere will make the venture useless. Changing the frequency of the signal from the light range to the radio range will make transmission generally ineffective, since it is impossible to make the beam narrow and highly energetically saturated.
    The angle of divergence of the radio signal beam is directly related to the frequency. Smearing a beam onto an area in a soccer field will force you to charge the batteries (which you also need to carry with you, to the same mountains and swamps) for weeks.

    This is just illiterate nonsense. In order to transfer a power of 1 GW from one orbit to the Earth (one nuclear power unit), it will be necessary to install solar panels with an area of ​​more than 100 square meters in orbit. It is 000 x 000 kilometers. A portrait of Trump on such a battery will be visible to the naked eye, even with very poor eyesight.
    But drank dough on this subject s can arrange a grand. A flag in their hands, a feather in ..., and with a fair solar wind.

    It should be added to the above that it is not possible to concentrate RADIOLUCH on a small area. The divergence angle is directly related to the frequency of the radio. Irradiation of the tectar even with gigawatt power and the use of antennas of reasonable size (tens of square meters) on Earth will allow us to take energy in thousandths of a percent of the sent. And these are weeks of charging batteries from earth saboteurs disguised in mountains or swamps.

    In your leisure time, you would find out how long spacecraft at the DOE make 1 revolution around the earth before getting into a conversation

    And how much? The second question is how to find the place where you need to pull a kilo of Watts of energy in this short period of time? The third question is what should be the power of the emitter in orbit in order to be able to charge the battery on Earth, having lost almost 100% of energy in transport? The fourth question is, what kind of antenna should be in orbit in order to concentrate the radio beam to an acceptable size, the area it irradiates on Earth? The fifth question is, what should be the receiving antenna to catch the right amount of energy in that short period of time the satellite is above the head?
    The sixth question is whether it would not be wiser and easier to carry not this nonsense with you, but an elementary gas generator weighing 10 kg and power enough to charge the batteries for several hours?

      Guidance systems are on spy satellites, optics
      Powerful drives with huge instant return
      Pulse emitters of huge power
      And it is in this version that it makes sense - the maximum surface burns for drugs, by the way they have "non-lethal" weapons to disperse the crowd, microwave and for a long time, and at least - disabling the enemy's electronics, and a large coverage area is only a plus laughing

    Everything can be done decisively. Even wear pants over your head. The point is the simplicity of manufacture, ease of maintenance (do not forget that there are no specialists with three higher educations serving equipment in white coats and dust masks), reliability, small size and ease of carrying.
    As they say, the needle in the campaign is heavy. To tie up your battle group, the devil knows where, to make it dependent on the orbit of the passage of satellites, time and weather, replacing the simplest device, worked out for centuries, by a dynamo with these bells and whistles ......

    I would not neglect the rules of writing in Russian. And if you have a runny nose, lie down in bed and take medical treatment.
    You’re not used to rushing, and you suggest, by your example, recharging batteries in the field for many weeks. And let the war wait. And something simple and tasteful. Connect the detector receiver to the battery and enjoy.
