THE TECHNOLOGY

Overview

Bringing Electricity to Light

PowerLight optical power beaming technology converts kilowatts of electricity into high-intensity light. It then shapes, directs and beams this light to a specialized solar cell receiver that converts the light back to DC power.

 

Through the beam, power can travel over long distances, at high altitudes and in the deep sea—maintaining uptime, from near and far. The innovative beam-shaping design optimizes the energy of the beam at the start, to minimize losses across the transfer medium and maximize power in the end.

KEY ASPECTS

Sustained, Flexible Operation

Our platform provides more flexibility of use and longer asset operation than generators, small engines and batteries, by eliminating service interruptions, battery charging, and copper wire limitations.

Improved Safety

Our technology is safe. It even protects operators from the safety risks of generating, transferring, storing and distributing electricity over copper wires. It provides these benefits while reducing the need for specially trained personnel and the operational challenges of relying on fuel and batteries.

Agile Capabilities

Compared to other high-altitude unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) power solutions, for example, our platform maximizes payload and minimizes system weights while operating more cost-effectively.
