      An old KiteLab Ilwaco AWES Theory-of-Operation is that collections of chaotic single kite oscillators are best sychronized by passive coupling into networks, thereby potentially easing farm-scale control challenges. Field experiments with many fighter kites on one line and cross-linked wingmills are positive cases of group synchrony. Future kite farms may even fire "passively" in smooth metachrony. Actuation would mostly be small tuning inputs for well-formed energy outputs. 

      Its not that anyone insists on avoiding conventional autonomous control for AWES, but that passive methods seem superior in almost every way, and therefore cries-out for due R&D.

      Third party validation of such poorly understood control ideas is growing-
