CASSIOPeiA is by far my favorite Solar Power Satellite, it is both beautifully designed and highly efficient. International Electric’s inspiring CASSIOPeiA stands for Constant Aperture, Solid-State, Integrated, Orbital, Phased Array. Earlier this month, CASSIOPeiA Engineer, Ian Cash, presented his SPS at the 69th International Astronautical Congress in Bremen, Germany and wowed the audience. The CASSIOPeiA hardware demonstration is set for early 2019. For now, here are his updated slides…I will let his/their work speak for itself.
In Greek mythology, Cassiopeia was a boastful, unrivaled, beautiful queen.
Here is the video from the Los Angeles International Space Development Conference 2018 as well as the WISEE 2017 in Montreal, Canada.
