The Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency and the Institute for Unmanned Space Experiment Free Flyer are planning to conduct a microwave power transmission (MPT) ground experiment in fiscal year 2014. We will use an important MPT technology called beam steering control (BSC). The BSC technology accurately controls microwave beam pointing to a power receiving(More)
Solar Power Satellite (SPS) is an energy system which collects solar energy in space and transmits it to the ground. It has been believed as a promising infrastructure to resolve global environmental and energy problems for human beings. One of the most important technologies for the SPS is the wireless power transmission from the geostationary orbit to the(More)
We develop electrical functional models of the space solar power system (SSPS) for the system study and the practical demonstration of the end to end capability from space to the ground. The model generates electricity by the solar array and converts the DC power into microwaves with a frequency of 5.8 GHz. The microwave beam is controlled in one(More)
It is noted that the increased central sympathetic nerve activity caused by neurovascular compression at the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) is closely related to the genesis of neurogenic hypertension. The authors present the case of a 49-year-old female with refractory neurogenic hypertension to be uncontrolled even with all kinds of oral(More)
The rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) is known to be a major center regulating sympathetic and cardiovascular activities. A possible association between neurovascular compression of the RVLM and essential hypertension has been indicated. The present study was performed to determine the role of angiotensin II (AngII) in the pressor and sympathetic(More)
