Lockheed Martin and Space Based Solar Power

From: http://www.lmco.cn/data/assets/corporate/documents/April2009-LMToday.pdf

Energy and climate change are dominant issues for our customers, our nation and the world. It is imperative that we apply our tremendous depth of engineering and technical talent to solutions for energy independence, and at the same time open up adjacent markets for continued business growth.”
— Ray O. Johnson, Lockheed Martin senior vice president and chief technology officer

Space-based solar power has significant potential. After collecting the solar energy, the space-based solar power system converts it to radio frequency energy and conveys it efficiently and safely to the ground through large-aperture transmitters and collectors. This artist’s rendering of a space-based solar array shows the wide aperture delivery of the space-generated power, an important safety feature.

Another technology that is some years away but holds tremendous potential is space-based solar power.  Lockheed Martin Space Systems is in the early stages of forming a program in conjunction with government and industry partners to develop a solar power system that operates where the sun is always shining — above Earth’s atmosphere.  Around-the-clock access to sunshine with no weather outages, as well as the space-based system’s ability to collect solar energy before any is lost to the atmosphere, makes it potentially four to eight times more efficient than systems currently on the ground, says Rick Halbach, Space Systems senior manager.  After collecting the solar energy, the space-based solar power system would convert it to radio frequency energy and convey it efficiently and safely to the ground through large-aperture transmitters and collectors.  Related technology work, such as advanced photovoltaic solar cells designed specifically for use in space are being matured by Space Systems’ Advanced Technology Center in Palo Alto, Calif. The ATC is also working on thermovoltaics and battery technologies for space applications.

I tried to download ad-aware after I got infected, but it will not let me open or download ANY antivirus software to quarantine or remove this spyware virus. It just keeps giving me popups that say I have been infected would you like to activate your security software and then ads like Viagra will appear. I don't know what to do since I cannot download and run an antivirus to remove this! PLEASE HELP! [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]

Whenever I play a game on the computer, and hold down a button on the keyboard for a long time, when I press another key it has a VERY slow response time. It will still be doing keyboard movements from earlier. I thought it was a virus and reinstalled my computer, but I still have the problem. Please help. [url=http://gordoarsnaui.com]santoramaa[/url]

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your site.
Do you ever run into any browser compatibility problems?
A few of my blog readers have complained about my site not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera.
Do you have any solutions to help fix this issue?

I am extremely impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on

Either way keep up the nice quality writing, it's rare to see a great blog like this one today.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The words in your article seem
to be running off the screen in Chrome. I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with browser compatibility but I thought I'd post to let you know.
The layout look great though! Hope you get the issue
resolved soon. Kudos

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a
comment is added I get four emails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove people from that service?

Thank you!
