The size of the charging system is relatively large Laser Pointer
Not affected by strong winds and high temperatures. The laser pointer test is specifically conducted in remote deserts. During the test period, the "Lurker" installed a light photoelectric receiver and power management hardware, and the maximum effective range for receiving laser charging was 600 meters. During laser energy transmission, the system can control the accuracy of the beam tracking and positioning receiver to the centimeter level, which will not only damage and affect the normal flight operation of the "latent man", but also will not affect the drone's hovering, climbing, etc. Maneuvering. Optical fiber laser pointer charging technology because the optical fiber itself does not conduct electricity. Don't worry about lightning strikes or short circuits.
And In The Environment Of High Voltage And Strong Magnetic field, there will be no interference. The only disadvantage of this system is the relatively large volume of the laser pointer charging system. It needs to be packed in a RV. At present, Lockheed Martin stated that their goal is to reduce the charging system to only "2 suitcases" in size for special combatants to carry. In addition to individual fixed-wing drones, in May 2013, the United States also conducted a laser charging test of a quadrotor UAV in vertical take-off and landing conditions. This charging system, nicknamed the "stealth tower", can use a laser to charge the drone under any conditions. When the ground-based charging system has sufficient energy. The laser pointer enables uninterrupted flight of the drone.
