Engineering


Flight Control As if anything was under control. System Design Looking at the structure of whole systems. Electronics Zapp. Soldering. PCBs… all that stuff… Generators & Gearing Go get that power! Electrifying! CAD & Simulation Make it virtually before building it. Blade design The torque, the rps, the airfoils… Lifters / Pilot kites Get the Lift! Lifting things. That boulder just outside of geostat orbit goes here. Crosswind Kites / Planes The kites that go wooooooooosh, wooooooooooooosh, wooooooooooosh. (Please someone write decent category descriptions!) Math & Physics The purest of sciences go here. Power Transmission conductive tethers, tethers for winching systems, rope-drives, rotating shafts, and more Manufacturing Making it a reality!
