Vision

Push the progress of space exploration by transmitting power wirelessly everywhere, enabling missions with a challenging energy demand.

Mission

Our goal is to develop a payload that, installed onboard a satellite, can transmit large amounts of wireless power with high pointing accuracy and reliability, and a receiving system able to convert that wireless power back into electricity.

Our Concept

Our High-Tech Vision to power future moon bases

Satellite Constellation – Wireless Power Transmission

ORiS plans to send a satellite constellation into orbit around the moon. The satellites will collect solar energy and transmit it wirelessly with a laser to a receiver on surface, which will convert the energy from the laser into electricity useful to power the future space colony.

Our solutions

key technologies

ORiS believes that to supply energy to a human space colony, more diverse solutions must be found. To achieve this mission we are developing our innovative key technologies, together with the enabling tech to make it all work.

Laser Payload

ORiS is designing its high-power laser payload able to work efficiently in the harsh space environment

Pointing and Control System

A precise and accurate pointing system is capable of reliably hitting the receiver target up to thousands of kilometers away

Thermal Management System

The Thermal Management system must dispose of excess heat due to operation of the laser, enabling it to transfer as much energy as possible to the user

Receiver

The receiver is designed to convert the energy from the laser into electrical energy, demonstrating an efficiency that is higher than that of a typical solar cell array
