Title (EN) GEOSTATIONARY HIGH ALTITUDE PLATFORM
(FR) PLATE-FORME À HAUTE ALTITUDE GÉOSTATIONNAIRE
Abstract:
(EN) A geostationary platform is held afloat by a superpressure balloon. A suitable altitude is 25 km. The craft carries electrohydrodynamic thrusters, to overcome winds, held within a scaffold. Sensors determine position, velocity, acceleration and vector. A CPU performs instructions for station-keeping or navigation. A communication system is included to, inter alia, receive instructions from the ground. The craft carries a payload for observation and transmission, cradled in a temperature-controlled chamber. Power to the platform is transmitted in the form of electromagnetic waves (with suitable frequencies including microwaves of 2.45 GHz or 5.8 GHz) from a ground-based transmitter to a receiving antenna on, or affixed to, the balloon which converts the electromagnetic energy to direct current. A step-up voltage converter increases the voltage as required. A ground station monitors craft position and operational efficiency by radar to help ensure safe takeoff, operation, and landing of the craft.
(FR) Selon la présente invention, une plate-forme géostationnaire est maintenue à flot par un ballon en surpression. Une altitude adaptée est de 25 km. Le véhicule transporte des propulseurs électrohydrodynamiques, pour surmonter les vents, maintenus à l'intérieur d'un échafaudage. Des capteurs déterminent la position, la vitesse, l'accélération et le vecteur. Une unité centrale exécute des instructions pour le maintien stationnaire ou la navigation. Un système de communication est inclus pour, entre autres, recevoir des instructions depuis le sol. Le véhicule transporte une charge utile pour l'observation et la transmission, logée dans une chambre à température contrôlée. De l'énergie est transmise à la plate-forme sous la forme d'ondes électromagnétiques (des fréquences adaptées comprenant des micro-ondes de 2,45 GHz ou 5,8 GHz) depuis un émetteur basé au sol vers une antenne de réception sur, ou fixée à, le ballon qui convertit l'énergie électromagnétique en courant continu. Un convertisseur élévateur de tension augmente la tension en fonction des besoins. Une station au sol surveille la position et l'efficacité opérationnelle du véhicule par radar afin de contribuer à garantir un décollage, un fonctionnement et un atterrissage sûrs du véhicule.
