THE AWE TECHNOLOGIES
THE AWE SOLUTIONS
In the last decade the AWE domain increased rapidly and today around 100 AWE players are active worldwide, proposing several concepts and layouts, all of them sharing a common feature: the use of a flying device linked to the ground by one or more tethers. But only few of them have reached a prototype phase and none have yet succeeded in delivering an effective, efficient, reliable and resilient system. The success of these AWE solutions has up today been hindered because of three main factors:
- Aerodynamic performances of the flying device
- Autonomous operation
- Deployability and reliability of the overall system
The first that will succeed in delivering an AWE system with such characteristics may lead to a quantum leap able to radically change the global energy scenarios.
