Quote from their website:
"After initially focusing on harnessing high altitude wind energy using its innovative aerial platform, Altaeros pivoted in 2015 to focus on a better solution to provide modern, high-speed connectivity to un-served and under-served rural communities."

 My comment:
Actually, their new focus on using high-altitude wind energy converts wind-energy to aid in the holding up of a kite-balloon that provides high altitude vantage for sending and receiving communication signals. LTA buoyancy is also used.  Thus, their system is still an AWES, still a kite system, and still a kite system that is configured to do good practical works.
