  • Beam control and/or beamforming technologies involving phased arrays can be used to enable highly efficient microwave power transmission (MPT) systems. In Japan, several field MPT experiments using a phased array have been conducted over the years. In 1992, a joint collaborative group successfully conducted a fuel-free flight experiment using phased-array technology, which was referred to as the MIcrowave Lifted Airplane eXperiment. In 2008, Kobe University (Kyoto, Japan) and a U.S. research… CONTINUE READING
