LaserMotive Applications

Beam Power team LaserMotive asks you to Support Laser Power Beaming. They're interested in the Space Elevator, but they also have a number of useful applications to address in the short term, like powering UAVs, laser launch, and Space-Based Solar Power. The New York Times editorial they link to that advocates an SSP demo from the ISS is just the kind of thing LaserMotive is motivated to do.
