An airborne remote piloted vehicle does not require onboard fuel to greatly extend its endurance and payload capability. Photovoltaic cells are provided on substantially the entire bottom surface of the RPV to receive high intensity radiation beamed up from a ground station. The photovoltaic cells can be made responsive to visible light, infrared light and/or ultraviolet light emitted from lasers that direct narrow, high energy beams, or other directable narrow beams of other wavelengths of high energy radiation, including but not limited to microwaves. ...
1. A remote piloted vehicle comprising:a saucer-shaped fuselage having at least one traverse duct extending from top to bottom for channeling prop blast downward; a propeller disposed in said duct; an electric motor unit coupled to said propeller to drive said propeller and generate said prop blast, said prop blast permiting transport to and hovering at a remote station; and a plurality of photovoltaic cells disposed on a bottom side of said saucer-shaped fuselage to receive beamed radiation and to generate electrical power from said beamed radiation, sa...
