Abstract
Laser power beaming - transmitting electric power without wires via laser - has been demonstrated for kilowatt power levels and kilometer distances. This paper reviews the demonstrated and projected capabilities and limitations of laser power beaming, and analyzes the requirements for several application areas relevant to defense and security: unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), communications relays, sensor networks, and field unit or forward base power.
