This paper mainly aims at the energy reception characteristics of solar aircraft flying in the near space between the Tropics of Cancer and Capricorn. Based on the solar radiation intensity calculation model, the energy reception characteristics including maximum solar radiation intensity, daytime average solar radiation intensity, total solar radiation energy received per day on the unit area., and daytime hours of solar aircraft was calculated varying with date, longitude, and latitude. By analyzing the corresponding calculation results, it can provide some reference value for the design of solar aircraft flying in this area.
