Kite Farm Micro-Seismic Field as passive
An active kite farm anchor-field contains a sub-surface phonon-gas* full of state-information about the AWES. A passive-array of acoustic sensors can in principle accurately report the operational status of kite cells, as they tug at their loads, and any active machinery. The soil can be PINGedd for the array to image standing stress fields below the micro-seismic threshold. Rare risk conditions, like soil-liquefaction, can be detected. The tech promises to someday be robust and low-cost.
The micro-seismic data source is best suited to augment and back-up active sensor-networks above the surface, especially machine-vision systems. Oil exploration, marine sonar, acoustic surveillance, and ultra-sound scanning are just of a few of the many similarity cases to apply.
* Balanced against the atmospheric phonon-gas.

(Legal Note: Open AWE CC sharing and claims rest on "artist's moral rights", under the Berne Convention.
Inventing is a true creative Art, by long tradition.
The intent in Open AWE is to make the widely emerging new form of CC IP voluntarily accepted and fairly valued,
as AWE's professional best-practice standard. Comments invited.)
