The PDF contains info on wheelguns, giant counterrotating flywheel hoops in space to supply power to SDI weapons, mainly railguns/particle accelerator cannons/free electron lasers that need huge amounts of power right now. Appears to expect to be trickle charged over time by a small space nuclear reactor (SNAP? atomic teakettle?). Also has an interesting microwave power beaming scenario from a nuke in mars synchronous orbit to a ground rover, high performance radiators, including a fabric heatpipe radiator, a curie point magnetic liquid droplet radiator, and other power conversion concepts.

Interesting arguement that a SPS demonstrator can be built now with COTS/near COTS hardware, taking advantage of mass production of terrestrial products to reduce costs. The primary tricks being accepting losses in efficiency and overcoming it by reducing system mass, so the actual W/Kg is still higher. Thin film solar, carbon fiber booms, thin film inflatable reflectors and optics, power equipment mass reductions, and lower cost space access (SpaceX) are the COTS components that make at least the demonstrator possible. There is the interesting talk of making sure most technology/products are dual use, such as wireless power transmission to HALE LTA UAV sensor blimps to offload payload power requirements.
