The latest addition to the NSS Space Solar Power Library is a new paper released by SpaceWorks Commercial entitled “Operational Demonstration of Space Solar Power (SSP): Economic Analysis of a First Revenue Satellite (FRS)” [PDF], presented at the recent 28th International Symposium on Space Technology and Science (ISTS) in Japan.

The FRS would be a mid-power (1-20 MW of delivered power) space-to-ground demonstrator of SSP. The purpose would be two-fold: prove the end-to-end technical capability and then demonstrate operations over multiple years. The system would be turned over to commercial operators for public/private service.
