Pierre, Fig5 is far less complex than Makani’s architecture, and many schemes you have favored, like OrthoKites, WheelWind, and RotatingReels. At least kPower can handle the obvious low-complexity, by developing the methods diligently-
The real complexity crisis is active flight automation of single-line flygen and reeling in breakaway-mode. Fig5 passively retains the kite if one line breaks. No flygen or control-pod dependencies and vulnerabilities. This inherent simplicity is what Low-Complexity AWE is all about.
