German Children’s programming served up the most detailed picture yet of Skysails first-ever certified AWES, inspiring and preparing kids by the millions for a better world powered in large measure by AWE.
All sorts of interesting SkySails details shown close-up. The kite nose couples to a blower/vacuum for inflation-deflation, at the retracted top-line. The Control Pod now has a RAT (ram-air-turbine gen), eliminating past need for power wiring in the tether. There is wireless COM link dependency (jamming risk), but at least it’s a soft kite. All in all, a fine start for AWE to build on. Many kids who watched will do great things.
