Title: System using a megawatt class millimeter wave source and a high-power rectenna to beam power to a suspended platform

Abstract

A system for beaming power to a high altitude platform is based upon a high power millimeter gyrotron source, optical transmission components, and a high-power receiving antenna (i.e., a rectenna) capable of rectifying received millimeter energy and converting such energy into useable electrical power.
