Space Solar Power for Disaster Relief


Solar Powered satellites will have a future as an aid in disaster relief. These new satellites will not only be useful in gathering sun’s energy from space and transmitting it to Earth as electrical power, it can be expected that they will also be used in restoring communication and providing remote sensing as well as illumination.

These visualizations of space based solar power satellites for utilization during a disaster were completed by MDIA students working in partnership with the Grid Lab at Ohio University. This was published as part of Issue 17 of the Online Journal of Space Communication and is reproduced with permission.
