    Cited by:  Papers (12)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract | PDF file iconPDF (3141 KB) | HTML iconHTML

    We will focus mainly on microwave beamers to provide the energy wirelessly to station-keep such platforms and for powering their payloads. Laser beamer systems are also in play but are limited by weather, beam safety, and current cost. The HAPPs are assumed to be equipped with rectennas to receive the wireless power beam and to convert it to electric power, although there are other beam-receiving ... View full abstract»

    This article presents novel analytic solutions to the problem of predicting the power transfer efficiency between lateral and angularly misaligned solenoidal coils. Inductive coupling is extensively used as a method of wireless powering and offers significant advantages over wired powering schemes. However, coil misalignment is an inherent problem that can significantly impair the power transfer e... View full abstract»

    Although the idea of eliminating cords seems attractive, the efficiency will always be better when a wire or cable is used to deliver power. So, what are the applications that warrant wireless powering, and especially wireless powering at longer ranges? It might be appropriate to remember a quote by Rudyard Kipling in this introduction: I keep six honest serving men (they taught me all I knew) The... View full abstract»

    Whether listening to broadcast radio or testing developed wireless devices, for civilian or military applications, based on terrestrial or spatial links, a radio frequency (RF) receiver with good measurement capabilities that preserves the received signal information is required. Today's RF measurement receivers with wideband capabilities are split into two groups based on the measurement strategy... View full abstract»

    The accuracy of an Eigenmode analysis for characterizing the propagation and attenuation behavior of periodic structures has been theoretically verified in [1] and [2]. When combined with full-wave simulation, one can further completely and efficiently solve periodic multimode structures and devices. In this work, a set of virtual experiments is conducted to highlight the efficiency and versatilit... View full abstract»
