Welcome to LaserMotive...

LaserMotive is a Seattle-based company developing wireless power delivery systems using laser beams to transmit electricity without wires, for applications where wires are either cost prohibitive or physically impractical. We launched the company by winning the 2009 NASA Centennial Challenges Power Beaming Challenge and taking home the Level 1 prize.

We founded LaserMotive on our belief in wireless power as a “powerful” solution for a variety of applications, near-term and in the future, on Earth, and, especially, in space. Recent advances in commercial laser technology are bringing many exciting applications within the reach of economic and technical viability, from powering underwater sensors and drones to launching rockets via laser power to beaming limitless solar energy from space to the Earth. The Power Beaming Challenge, followed by a record-setting flight of a UAV for 150 times battery life, have been excellent initial steps along LaserMotive’s path to realizing the physical and economic viability of laser power beaming.
