Abstract

A small flying object (kite plane) was successfully driven by using the laser energy transmission technology. A demonstration test was done in a large baseball dome stadium. A long-time flight of a kite plane flying at an altitude of 50 m and with a circulating radius of 10 m has been accomplished. It has been shown that the technology is applicable to practical use such as a reconnaissance flight in natural disasters.
