  • K3     ~~~ AWE Era ~~~  
    The space race Sputnik-(1957)-charged introduced a synergy that resulted in increased manned kiting activity by NASA and associated companies and individuals, including hgh-speed moving moorings of tethered lifting bodies. This brought in a run of patents over the Wanner wing, Rogallo wing, Barish sailwing, Jalbert parafoil, and many versions of  what was then termed paraglider which wrapped flexible sail over frames (unlike the later use of the term paraglider). The free-flight governable parachutes increased in importance. The severe kiting in the Paresev program included release-for-glide weight-shift control (move payload mass relative to attitude of wing). Such kiting gave impetus to expanding uses of large kites, both with moving moorings and free-flight kites. Children of such investments and experience may be seen in the surge of hang gliding, traction-kiting sports, the 1970s AWECS bump, and even much of 2000s professional AWECS race. It may be said that a huge new golden age of kiting K2 was birthed by the communications of Domina C. Jalbert and Francis M. Rogallo moved along by political pressures and competitions punctuated with the need for freedom expressed in recreational manned kiting found in Igor Bensen, aqua-kiting, hang gliding, and gliding sky-diving. It is suspected that K2 has been blossoming to be a diamond Age of Tethered Aviation and Kite Energy that will be a deserving winner of the K3 name; founders of K3 will be viewable in part in the AWEIA international's coming Founder's Circle collection of over 600 persons,  certainly less than the full community that will expand to tens of thousands.    The neat thing is that K1 and K2 remain alive and well, even while K3 is being nursed by centers in  Belgium, Ireland, England, Netherlands, Russia, China, USA, Nigeria, Germany, France, Mexico, Syria, Nigeria, India, France, and many other corners of earth...   Use kites to do special works including the making of useful stored energy or energy sent into energy-distribution systems:   K3 ~~AWE Era~~               M2776

    • Killer kites: Three types of killer kites are recognized in kiting. One type of killer kite has the task of taking out of flight another kite; such is in sport and also in practical kite energy operations to take out a kite that is fugitive. Another killer kite regards the notorious kites that cause death and injury; some nations' kite festivals have been marred or cancelled because of killer kites; governments have gotten involved to halt or slow the effect of killer kites. The kite's glassed lines or the kite's metallic base material have resulted in far too many deaths and injuries. <ref>[ http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/2978988.stm  Pakistan tackles killer kites.]</ref> Death by kites is part of the reason the world knows this kite type. Another type of "killer kite" are those that simply deeply astound viewers and users with some unique exciting quality.<ref>[ http://www.thefunctionkey.com/2011/03/killer-kites-by-daniel-frost/  killer kites by daniel frost.]</ref>

  • kite   is the default term for just the wing part of a complete kite; once a wing is conceived as part of a complete kite, then the wing alone---which is not a kite (not complete, just the wing)--is frequently said to be the "kite" as default term, even though the background unsaid is that there is for a complete kite a necessary bridle-tether-resistive-anchor assembly needed to be (fully) kite.  This defaulting regarding just the wing goes into the geometrical world where just the format of the quadrilateral adopts the word "kite" in the mathematical and art world.  Anyone using kites as a flying machine has the wing part, tether part, and the cause of resistance that brings on the necessary tension in the tether part in order to have "kite" (complete).  That is, wing alone does not make the flying-machine "kite".      K=(w,t,r)
     
    • '''Kites''' are fluid craft composed of wings coupled by tether to a resisting source. When the wings are bridled effectively, and a net flow reacts with the wings and resisted by the kite's necessary resisting source (anchor, mooring, etc.) then a resulting lift and drag results to effect sustained flight in the fluid. Frequently, the wing of a kite is called "kite" while a wing alone is not the full kite. A wing alone might be a glider, but in itself is not a kite. A kite might consist of many wings, many tethers, and even many resisting elements. The stream flow where kiting actions occur may be artificial flow, natural flow, or apparent flow during a falling gliding kiting. The anchoring resisting the wing's lift and drag may be moving in many ways (earth rotation, human hand, tugging boat, another wing, kite-boarder's body, a falling payload, or a moving fishing pole. Fluid choices are not limited to air or water, but those are the most common fluids where one finds kites.

      What is a kite?   What is a kite system?
      • A passively-autonomous AWES [[Ed: kite system]] can be formally understood as a coupled phonon-graviton automaton acting under quantum computational control.  ~DaveS AirborneWindEnergy/message/8971
      • kite is a captive aëroplane

  • kite   What are kites that have default names to fit particular applications of the kite: paraglider, gliding parachute, parasail, governable parachute, kite hang glider, hang glider (of kite sort that has a tether to payload), slope soarer (when with tether to payload), glide wing (when with tether to payload), glider (when kiting is occurring), ...
    • David Barish: "if you want a wing, you need the lowest possible porosity. I determined the length of the lines came from the experience of kite-flyers who already knew all there was to know on this subject." Sourced interview. His sailwing was arranged into a kite format with kite lines and himself as the resistive payload; it  was a kite; he ground kited it and then glided his kite. The wing's airfoil was patented as "glide wing" but the wing materialized for a kite use for kite gliding which he called "slope soaring."

  • kite array    Distinguish from kite-farm. Distinguish from a unity.        AWE4728

    • kixel, kixels             
      • Unit element kite in kite array (like a pixel of an image display) ..
        A genesis of the term may be seen from the suggestion of Rod Read on Sept. 27, 2011: "
        A kite array with piezoelectric multilayer bending actuators. The array is going
        to be 3d. Each kite will have one or more piezoelectric multilayer bending actuators.
        The top layer of the array will be set out and addressed as per VGA (yes video)
        standards. e.g.,  a printed cut set of micro kite ribbons glued side by side
        with..."  And then  Dec. 9, 2011: "I'd suggested before addressing of kites in an array can be done with VGA methods."
              That was followed by Dave Santos' comment, "
        Your VGA idea is good, it is even possible to make a giant color TV screen in the sky out of kite pixels; would that not be cool?" and then term creation originated by Dave Santos of KiteLab Group:  AWES5662

      • an identical addressable kite unit, one of many strung along rope loadpaths in matrix-arrays, in order to make up a "metakite"
      • Sensors in a kixel may report the conditions of that unit.
      • Controllers may face the needs of a particular kixel.
      • Maintenance crews may focus on a particular kixel.
      • See related terms: AWES5992
      • Right On, Roddy, we are on to a major mega-AWES concept here, and the VGA analogy is apt.
              We can even use Edo-style kite bridling to allow each kixel's AoA to be fine-tuned in flight. What you can't see in all the Edo pictures is the cool little fairlead address-map rigger's plate, at the common bridle point, that allows every part of the Edo to be individually tension-tuned without futzing for the right line. Of course, presetting our Kixels in a tied-off mode is still programming.

  • KiteBoat, kiteboat     Boats moved by the wind energy capture from a kite system use either the tug methods or the conversion to electricity which electricity is then used to drive a hydro propeller. In both methods, the systems are energy kite systems and belong to AWE.  The tug method occurs in microAWE, miniatureAWE, toyAWE, sportAWE, residentialAWE, commercialAWE, and utilityAWE. When the tug method reduces the use of coal and oil, then such notes are especially welcome  KiteTug and KiteSailTM   and KiteShipTM  are some of the main players in commercialAWE that use wind energy through kite systems using the tug method for boats and ships to save on use of oil-based fuels. Differently is the KitVes project that feels a freedom to convert wind energy captured through an AWECS that converts wind energy to electricity that is then used for on-vessel works including driving the boat or ship in directions it wishes to go.  Benjamin Franklin's legendary story of a pond tug of his body by kite may be an example of either sportAWE,  toyAWE, or recreationalAWE. Miniature boats using miniature kites or kytoons example miniatureAWE tug method.  Envisioned is a utilityAWE kiteboat where the kites or kytoons tug a barge that is saturated with hydro turbines that make electricity (perhaps to be used to make and compress hydrogen from water; the hydrogen would be transported ultimately to work sites).  Anne Quéméré is exploring a second type kiteboat; her OceanKite effort to cross the Pacific Ocean was aborted; now her boat designer is going forward on another kiteboat. See her new blog on her planned trip from Peru to Tahiti.

  Ugo Bardi and Massimo Ippolito founded the trademark of "KiteGen".   Later a distinct school project named its project with Kitegen, but without reduction of the priority of the trademarking.  The continued use of the innovative trademark does not get removed by another's use for a school project at a different university.   See: M2773

Further point for history: 
"
If you allow me a little note on this point, I remember that I had proposed the name "kitegen" to Massimo Ippolito a few years ago. Before, he had called his idea "KiWiGen" ("KIte WInd GENerator) - which sounded like something made in New Zealand or sold in the vegetable market. Ippolito agreed with me and from then on we started using that name. At that time, Mr. Fagiano and his coworkers at the Politecnico di Torino probably didn't even know that such a thing as AWE existed.

Unfortunately, neither myself nor Ippolito placed a copyright on the name, so I see now that people are fighting for the rights of the name. Which is all right, after all, what is in a name? That which we call kitegen, by any other name, would fly so nice. Also, a kitegen is a kitegen is a kitegen.....     ~~UB     Dec. 22, 2010,  M2754

"DISTINCTION:   "The name “KiteGen” has been coined at Politecnico di Torino, well before the foundation of KiteGen Research s.r.l., and it has been the name of the first research project, funded by Regione Piemonte and coordinated by Politecnico di Torino, aimed to investigate high-altitude wind energy using power kites."  ~~ Lorenzo Fagiano in his Ph.D. thesis, which see.

    • A kite has a wing set, a tether set, and a resistive subassembly (set of elements). The tether set tenses as a result of the wing set's kiting action couple through the tether set of kite lines to the resistive set that may be anything that results in the tension in the kite lines; thus the resistive set might be the rotating earth, a vehicle, a falling mass, a payload of a gliding kite (paraglider), a human hand, a kiteboarder's board and body, a horse, a winch, a rock, a wing deflecting to give resistance, etc.

kite messenger            A long and deep culture within kiting involves using kite tethers as a means for transporting messages, objects, parachute models, gliders, entertainment bags, etc. Advanced AWECS consider having "messenger" being such as gondolas to transport people, products, tools, water, chemicals, skydivers, hang gliders,  batteries, etc..  The "messenger" might be sailed up and down the tether. The "messenger" might be a powered climber that is powered by electricity made by the very AWECS on which the messenger travels. Other schemes are being examined.      See also HERE.

The evidence for these Principles is diverse and includes expert empirical knowledge, gedanken, experimental data, and calculated predictions."

    • The long standing option to run holding a kite string with its kite wing(s) is a form of "kite running."  This is done with more than one reason.
      • One may run with a kite for exercise of the running with the resistance of the wing; this is frequently done in track & field training sessions, often with the kite wing set being of very low lift but with high drag, often a parachute.
      • Others have run kites while the wings or tethers carry advertisements. 
      • Others run the string set and wing set of the kite system in order to get the wings into faster upper wind; this is a form of kite launching.  Or in calm, kite run just to get the system flying at all.
      • Others kite run while meditating how their body is the anchor system of an aircraft system, which is true, and how they are flying; the running adds a heighten sense of being the motor of the flying that is occurring. Some do this as part of "wing running" in preparation for hang gliding, ground skimming, paragliding.
      • Another form of kite running regards assisting in launching large kite wings or large kite trains; the kite system launch sometimes need people to run sections of the system or run to inspect parts.

    Kite Information and Technology Exchange Society of America since 1960s has served kiting, manned kiting, hang gliding, and airborne wind energy systems since the 1960s. Founding member of AWEIA, founding member of KiteLab Group, founded United States Hang Glider Association, founded Low & Slow periodical, founded Hang Glider magazine as a weekly, founded HangGliderHistory.com  with its timeline, founded Self-Soar Association, operates KiteLab Los Angeles.
                Any innovation in kiting and hang gliding that stems from KiteSA are placed freely into public domain for anyone to use personally or commercially without reference or attribution.                
                 KiteSA identified an early instance residing in the year 1908 in the territory of Breslau of the free-flight pilot-control mechanical construct of the cable-stayed triangle control frame (TCF) with hang glider pilot tethered behind the TCF; in each decade since the TCF was used in aviation in various ways; the TCF secured a sector of hang gliders as true free-flight kite systems with the pilot being the moving mooring base of the kite's tether during the gliding and soaring operations. 
                 KiteSA founded EnergyKiteSystems.net , energykitesystems.net , KiteEnergySystems.net , CupKites.com , StyroFoamKites.com , group AirborneWindEnergy  . and HGAusa.com      Current strong focus of KITESA regards bringing AWECS into rapid development and acceptance in both water and air.  AWECS is airborne wind energy conversion systems where methodology has clear mechanical similitude in water dynamics and water-air dynamics.

  • kite soaring            [[There are reasons to take caution: Paragliding Disaster Events - Part II ]]
    • kite soaring   Manned use of slope updraft in a free-flight gliding-kite system; the massive anchor is falling; the reactive wing has its lift and drag; the tether couples the system's falling anchor with the wing, so that the kiting principle results. The same kiting system mechanically provides resultant paragliding and kite hang gliding with a window of gliding and soaring opportunity.   When the falling anchor is advanced to be an effective wing itself, then another free-flight opportunity opens: that of playing the lower wing against the upper wing while the two separate wings are in significantly different winds in order to effect free-flight travel. Then when the two-wing system of long tether is further configured, onboard RATS may mine some of the dynamic energy of the apparent wind over each wing ---and save the energy for gifting others or in-system electric needs.  These systems may be expanded by treating upper wing as a set of wing elements and the same for the lower wing into a wing set of many elements; and the tether may go into being a tether set of many elements. Small or very huge systems of free-flight kite soaring systems are possible; and the AWES from RATS in such free-flight realm is possible.

Look to context to note if the author is with a focus just on the wing set of a kite (kite system).]]

Further point for history:  "If you allow me a little note on this point, I remember that I had proposed the name "kitegen" to Massimo Ippolito a few years ago. Before, he had called his idea "Kiwigen" ("KIte WInd GENerator) - which sounded like something made in New Zealand or sold in the vegetable market. Ippolito agreed with me and from then on we started using that name. At that time, Mr Fagiano and his coworkers at the Politecnico di Torino probably didn't even know that such a thing as AWE existed.

Unfortunately, neither myself nor Ippolito placed a copyright on the name, so I see now that people are fighting for the rights of the name. Which is all right, after all, what is in a name? That which we call kitegen, by any other name, would fly so nice. Also, a kitegen is a kitegen is a kitegen.....     ~~UB     Dec. 22, 2010,  M2754

"DISTINCTION:   "The name “KiteGen” has been coined at Politecnico di Torino, well before the foundation of KiteGen Research s.r.l., and it has been the name of the first research project, funded by Regione Piemonte and coordinated by Politecnico di Torino, aimed to investigate high-altitude wind energy using power kites."  Lorenzo Fagiano in his Ph.D. thesis, which see.
