The United States will start collecting solar energy in a special way at military bases



Research and prototyping has been carried out by the Air Force Research Laboratory and the space technology company Northrop Grumman. According to experts, they were able to achieve the desired effect: they received electricity from radio frequency waves, converted, in turn, from solar energy.

This will provide electricity to hard-to-reach and temporary bases and outposts, where it is difficult and expensive to deliver fuel. Ordinary solar panels used in everyday life? they are not suitable for these purposes – a lot of them will be needed for a military base, and it is pointless to install them for a short time.

The sandwich panel is made of two layers. The first consists of a material containing photovoltaic cells that collect solar energy and power the second layer. It contains components that convert solar energy into radio frequency waves and form a beam.

Details of the project were not disclosed.
