A Spider-Web for Spider-Trains

TU Delft is on a powerful track with its goal to perfect trains of sweeping kiteplanes (the Spider concept). The next logical scaling step will be to more safely and reliably host many such Spider-Trains in the smallest possible airspace by cross-linking them with a control-mesh kite layer across the tops. Call this the "Spider Web" AWE concept.
