Multi-kite airborne wind energy systems (MAWES)

The MAWES discussed here include a single main tether and multiple wings.

Conversely, a multi-anchored kite or kite network includes several anchors surrounding a kite or kite network.

MAWES look much more promising, at least because the wings are not blocked in webs of tethers, pulleys and anchors likely unable to allowing the implementation of a higher kite area flying fast enough and transferring wind energy. Conversely MAWES wings are free to fly fast and move in any directions thanks to the single ground station which can rotate according to wind direction. It is therefore not surprising that MAWES configurations are widely studied, even in Some tethered aviation concepts like this one.
