Leading high-tech countries aims to create a wireless remote power supply systems for spaceships and aircrafts, different devices, as well as infrastructure. For space and aircraft applications the most promising technology is the wireless transmission of electrical energy (WTEE) by laser beaming. In this paper it is considered creation features of a remote power supply system (RPSS) for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) based on a WPEE-technology by focused monochromatic infrared radiation beam. Studies have shown the promise of development and the possibility of its implementation in the near future. A demonstration experiment was planned.
