Andrews contributed the Rapid Prototyping Laboratory (ARPL) for LaserMotive to conduct laser testing and other system assembly requirements.

Andrews Chief Technology Officer Dana Andrews said, “LaserMotive had a promising start this year, and we expect them to come back strong next year in the 2008 competition. We believe their concept is the right approach to powering a planetary-scale elevator.”
