Texzon Wireless Power

AFFILIATION:   Texzon Technologies, Asheville, North Carolina, United States

TECHNOLOGY SUMMARY

Track: Energy & Resilience
Area: Grid Solutions
Tech Readiness: TRL 5

Tech Brief: Texzon Wireless Power employs a little known physical phenomenon called the Zenneck surface wave to wirelessly transfer megawatts of utility grade power or communications signals from any point on earth to any point on earth at very high levels of efficiency, using the surface of the earth as a waveguide.

Value Proposition: Because Zenneck surface waves employed by TWP are impervious to weather, EMP, or physical/cyber attack, wireless power will improve the resiliency and energy surety of DoD fixed and forward based installations and critical sites around the globe. Additionally, the ability to receive wireless power anywhere on the planet with deployable receivers will enhance the flexibility and streamline the logistics tails of deploying forces. Also, the ability to set up power receivers in the aftermath of a conflict or natural disaster will enable military forces to greatly reduce post-incident recovery timelines, increasing stability in troubled regions. TWP's ability to tap power generation sources anywhere on the planet will increase the viability of renewable power generation and enable DoD to quickly achieve renewable energy targets at its fixed installations. Finally, Texzon has filed patents for several related defense spinoff applications to include portable wireless power receivers for vehicles and aircraft, global wireless communications, non-satellite PNT, subterranean and below-the-horizon sensing,and long-range RFID.
