I was asked two interesting questions yesterday by people interested in commercial development of space-based solar power (SBSP):
- How would a company obtain a geostationary parking slot for a SBSP satellite?
- How would a company obtain a license to broadcast power from space over radio frequencies?
Excellent questions. Here are the answers that I slapped together from the Internet. (Special thanks to Maldivian Digital, and Wikipedia for having some well researched info posted on their sites!) Please check my work and let me know if I’ve embarrassed myself in public (again):
