► Controlled by Bitsy Single Board Computer
► Speed Regulation Power Transmission
Design a better, more efficient transmission
Fixed Input - 750W, 5.801GHz signal via waveguide or
Fixed Output - circularly polarized microwaves at same
Current design uses waveguides to transmit signal up to
a hemispherical reflector and back to a parabolic dish,
before traveling in a beam up to the rectenna array.
Goal - to transmit 400W of power to the rectenna array
Goal Rectenna Design
Design - based on a Texas A&M
design which transmitted power on small
► Patch Antennas and rectifying circuitry
► Primary Goals - cheaper and more efficient
► Secondary Goals - Lighter and stronger (self
