Inspired by classic reaction ferries popularly attributed to Leonardo, with crossflow motion similar to USP3987987fig5. As also linked on Water Kites Topic, here DaVinci Energy takes on Wind.
Anyone knowledgeable in kites understands sail-trains on cables can be flown up into better wind, as kite arches, starting from a suspended state lower down, the whole comprising an AWES-
A general DaVinci Energy statement about the basic reaction ferry principle-
“No other clean energy system has been in service longer, has lower installation cost, has lower cost per kWh, has higher output per systems or has more ‘universal install-ability’, than Translating Wing / Shuttle Foil Kinetic Energy Harvesting and Conversion Systems”
A nice ASME overview-
