Paper Abstract

The availability of power for use in space is a key requirement for many future space activities. The use of microwave/millimeter-wave power transmission in space provides an alternative energy generation and delivery system. Three - phase experiments on board the space shuttle are proposed to demonstrate the feasibility of microwave power transmission in space.
