Published by William Mook
A 10,000 MW Solar Power Satellite that is launched by the ETDHLRLV described earlier. The satellite feeds 1.25 MW to 8,000 ground stations simultaneously. Energy sold at $0.043 per kWh generates $300 million per month for each station. Four stations, including a fleet of launchers, is built and placed on orbit in five years for $14.4 billion. (less than the cost of developing a major field like Sakhalin Island.) The revenue earned by four satellites within five years is $1.2 billion per month!!! $14.4 billion per year revenue, creating a tremendous net present value of $188.4 billion when discounted at 6.5% over 30 years . With 32,000 ground stations, each ground station contributes $450,000 toward satellite operations and receives energy worth $5.87 million the day it is switched on. 45% of the revenue sold today for $450,000 provides a 40% annual compounded rate of return to investors that can be multiplied further by segmenting the payments into five payments of $90,000 each.

There are several open issues of a technical nature that must be addressed. These all relate to the ASIC MEMS that is the heart of this system. These are all addressed for $32 million. Or, $1,000 per ground station.

So, a finance program is rather simple. It relates to a collection of thirty-two thousand ground stations that is 1.25 MW each. It starts out as;

(1) $1,000 per ground station - 9 months - ASIC MEMS
(2) $90,000 per ground station - 12 months - Construction
(3) $90,000 per ground station - 24 months - Construction
(4) $90,000 per ground station - 36 months - Construction
(5) $90,000 per ground station - 48 months - Construction
(6) $90,000 per ground station - 60 months - Operation
(7) $2,420,208 received per ground station - revenue sold

This provide $32 million to do ASIC MEMS proof of concept, and success there results in a $2.88 billion per year commitment from 32,000 ground stations - to support the development of
(a) Four satellites to feed the ground stations
(b) A fleet of Heavy Lift RLVs to place the satellites

TRW Micro-thruster array -
In 1997DARPA awarded a $3.5-million contracttoTRW, the Aerospace Corporation andCalifornia Institute of Technology to come upwith a prototype MEMS based propulsionsystem for space applications.Micropropulsion takes advantage of the abilityof silicon fabrication methods to produce lotsof little devices at once.
Advanced Micro-Cavity -
With advancedelectron source provide a means to createultra-short-wave (infra-red) magnetron cavitiesthat together with SASE produce highefficiency IR-laser emitters.
 A 
free-electronlaser
, or FEL, is a laser that shares the sameproperties as conventional lasers but whichuses a relativistic electron beam as the lasingmedium which moves freely through amagnetic structure. The free-electron laser hasthe widest frequency range of any laser type,and can be widely tunable, rangingmicrowaves through X-ray at very high power.
Emerald Nano-Satellite Array
- TheUniversity Nanosat Program, a satellite designand fabrication competition for universities jointly administered by AFOSR, AFRL, AIAA and the Space Development Test Wing alsomanaged by the AFRL Space VehiclesDirectorate's Spacecraft Technology division.This creates fully functioning sub-kilogramspacecraft systems.
