  • regen boat wanting a kite

    http://oceanvolt.com/create-energy-while-sailing/ Seems ready for a make over.. Fit with loads of battery. enjoy your sail. come back to port and sell some

  • Re: Concentric Tri-Tether AWES Solution

    That sounds great. However I'm having trouble imagining how the inner tri tether passively sets AOA. Can you draw it? Or fly a cheap demo rig? Rod Read

  • Re: more AWE scoring matrix attempts

    Orite what's our problem with Italians? None that I know of. Especially in my case. That statement was worse than any omission.

Group Description

International rapid AWES development (RAD) of airborne wind energy conversion systems (AWES).

Kite energy systems work to fulfill tasks or provide energy for others to use.

Advance the science and art
of tethered craft (anchors may be fixed, mobile, moving, or even flying)
for capturing and utilizing
fluid stream kinetic energy.

Analogues in air and water form one art party. Domina Jalbert made it clear to the world that any sky-kite system has its obvious analogue in water, and thus obvious to those skilled in the arts.

Top-level AWES aspects: Designing, Validating, Inspecting, Assuring Safety, Assuring Quality, Siting, Communicating, Insuring, Certifying, Operating & Maintaining, Piloting, Observing, Controlling, Advertising, Selling, Adjusting, Decommissioning.

We have many leaders discussing and sharing technology.
"a leading company in airborne wind energy" will be applied to those sharing in this forum.

Un-tethered airborne wind power plants are included. RATs on powered aircraft and unpowered aircraft are embraced in this forum. IFOs are welcome.

A simple kite is already a wind turbine performing works. But this forum aims to advance kite systems for accomplishing small and humble tasks and huge global heavy industrial tasks. The tasks may include such as lifting, pulling, radiating light, radiating electricity, transporting goods and people. Thousands of tasks await solutions by kite systems (AWES).

AWES Forum Policy:
Unfriendly, profane, harassing, or abusive manners are not allowed on the AWES forum; but sincere technical disagreements, with supporting evidence, and posed in mild language, are welcome.

The world information project PROJECT KITE http://ProjectKite.info is supported in part by this forum.
