Thanks Joe, and to everyone patiently waiting for a large trove of early EnergyKiteSystems AWE documentation to be further aggregated, reformatted, and indexed.
The first tripod-tether AWES demo was 2008, which seems a lifetime ago with so much progress since. The 5-10W estimate breaks down about half to the generator and half lost to slop of the center tripod station. I am out of breath during the video because I had just launched the pilot from downwind and sprinted an excited 50m dash to catch the video before anything stopped working, to move onto the next hack.
KiteLab Group videos are only intended to document basic functioning of AWE concept after concept, not sell anything or impress anyone.
