Day 1: Context and Demand
Day 2: Deeper Technical Discussions
The challenge of delivering power across the lunar surface is exceptional. The absence of infrastructure, operations in permanently shadowed regions, and unique aspects of the lunar environment provide a potential niche for lunar power beaming solutions. In this LSIC workshop, we will explore the potential role of wireless power transfer, or power beaming, to deliver power across the lunar surface.
Day one of the workshop will engage a broad audience through content covering context and demand as well as an overview of power breaming, with time for small group break-out discussions on power beaming use-cases. This will both inform the lunar community of the scope of what is possible with power beaming, as well as provide power beaming experts an opportunity to engage with lunar experts for a wholistic understanding of the potential role of power beaming.
Day two will delve deeper into technical talks and discussions, with plenary talks on power beaming technologies recently funded by NASA, a panel discussion, “challenges and critical steps to advance power beaming,” and technically-focused breakout sessions.
We encourage participation from all stakeholders, and will provide opportunities for networking and forming partnerships to pursue opportunities in power beaming, such as the second phase of the Watts on the Moon Challenge.
