Above is a twin-propeller aerial vehicle with a laser converter mounted in the middle. The photovoltaic cells convert laser power to electrical power at high efficiency to power the two propellers. The laser converter is cooled by the downdraft created by the propellers.

New technology allows for recharging using lasers. Remote platforms may include flying, land-based, or submerged vehicles, satellites, and sensors.
