A compartment of the Executive Report

“The study team determined that there remain significant unresolved technological, economic, legal/political/, operational/organizational, and schedule challenges inherent in the development of a deployable space solar capability.

In light of these challenges, and questions, paired with the potential game-changing nature of space solar, now is the time for the Department of Defense to lead measured investment by Operational Energy stakeholders in these six keys areas:

Space Solar Collection,

Power Beaming Transmission,

Power Beaming Reception,

Receiver Power Distribution,

Architecture Analytics,

Supporting Technologies.”
