Funds from the friends and family of Bill Brown endowed and awarded the first William C. Brown Fellowship in MPT. Ga Tech's ECE Dept. awarded the first William C. Brown Fellowship (Fall 2013). We would like to increase the Fellowship's endowment.
Donna Salisbury, Bill Brown's eldest daughter(far left), was joined by sister Beth, Darel Preble(Space Solar Power Institute), Dr. John M. Osepchuk, a distinguished engineer who gave the keynote address, Blake Marshall ( the inaugural recipient), Prof. Durgin and sister Barbara. John was hired by Bill Brown and served as the Microwave Power Journal's first editor. Further history can be found on the Bill Brown Memorial webpage. (Blake Marshall also then led four undergraduate students in researching "Adaptive Impedance Matching for 5.8 GHz Energy Harvesting Circuitry", funded by Children's Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA). Undergraduate microwave harvesting teams took home two of the three prizes in the 2014 Opportunity Research Scholar's Competition.)
Wireless Power Transfer would gently beam SSP's power to large, nearly transparent antennas that would collect it on the ground, which could support growing crops underneath. We have thousands of satellites in orbit now - so we understand most of the technology. Japan's USEF consortium has a $2 Trillion yen project to build a prototype SSP satellite by 2025. The best pathway to initiating SSP construction is a public/private corporation chartered by Congress. Sunsat Corp would be modeled on Comsat Corp, a previous public/private corporation, chartered by Congress in 1962. Comsat created our very successful global communications satellite industry. Sunsat would create a power satellite industry.
