Global Energy Transmission (GET) has developed a wireless airborne charging system that can charge several drones at once.
Creating a sufficient number of these stations can lead to the emergence of a whole army of drones that may never land.
While BShark is working to create alternative hydrogen-based fuel sources to support the flight of long-life drones, GET decided to concentrate on charging batteries directly in the air. The charger looks quite simple: it is a hexagonal frame of wires on supports with a diameter of about 10 meters, similar to a partially built gazebo. When turned on, it creates an electromagnetic field in the air in the station area. The drone, equipped with special antennas, charges, flying into the zone of action of the energy cloud. Such a charger can transfer up to 12 kilowatts of power with an efficiency of about 80 percent - eight minutes of charging will be quite enough for the drone to stay in the air for about half an hour.
Within the perimeter of the station, several drones can be simultaneously charged at once, and the device itself is quite portable, so it can be adjusted and moved as needed. The company said that their main task now will be to create a complete system for long-range and long-term autonomous UAV missions. These charging stations will need to be installed at a certain distance from each other in order for drones to be able to constantly explore a particular area, only interrupting for quick recharging and not feeling the need for a person to change the battery with his own hand.
Such a charging station of the GET company and two specialized UAVs, each of which is capable of carrying a load of seven kilograms, will cost about 120 thousand dollars. Now the technology is only at the development stage, and the time of its appearance on the market is still unknown.
