Solar Power Satellites

ISAS has designed a model of the SPS2000, a 10MW-class demonstration solar-power satellite. We are also working on an experimental satellite plan for wireless power supply of several hundred kW. Ground experiments are conducted to examine the influence of high-voltage discharge necessary for large-capacity power generation in space and the impact of space debris. We are also investigating deployment and thermal structure of large antenna.
