Naval Research Laboratory scientists hold the first patent on the laser-beam-combining architecture used by the Navy (“Apparatus for Incoherent Combining of High-Power Lasers for Long-Range Directed Energy Applications,” U.S. Patent No. US 7,970,040 ) and were the first to demonstrate high-power continuous wave (greater than four kilowatts), single-mode, fiber laser beam propagation in the atmosphere over extended distances (greater than three kilometers). These high-power fiber lasers are particularly well suited for remote wireless recharging.
Wireless recharging of low flying satellites also could be viable to maintain their orbits.
Disturbances in the atmosphere (i.e., turbulence and aerosols) will affect the laser’s power propagation and delivery to the platform and may require adaptive optics for correction.
