Did you know?

Todays kitedevelopment method is experimental and by default prone to human error. Kite performance is currently unvalidated and determined by human interpretation.

Conventional design workflow:
01.DESIGN → Design to best practical
& theoretical knowledge
LOGOKitedesign
Kitedesigners currently design based upon their previous findings and experiences.
02.PROTO → Prototype
production
LOGOPrototype producton
The designer chooses which prototypes will be produced.
03.TRIAL↴ Trial and error
testing & tuning
LOGOTrial and error
The kite designer flies the prototype with different bridle settings and tries to determine which settings work best.
    Trial and error development cycles - No comparable data is recorded. Future design changes remain a best guess.

    Pushing future innovation

    Utilizing a unique data driven and performance validated kite development method. Enabling next-gen performance.

    01.SIM→ Design
    & simulation
    LOGODesign & simulation
    Simulation of kite designs allows us to understand flight performance and characteristics prior to prototype.
    02.CFD→ Fluid Dynamic
    analysis
    LOGOFluid Dynamic Analysis
    Airflow efficiency is key, utilizing CFD methods allows us to identify airflow flaws prior to prototype.
    03.PROTO→ Prototype
    production
    LOGOPrototype production
    We only produce prototypes which have gone through an extensive pre-analysis. Preventing trial and error.
    04.DATA→ In-flight realtime
    data capture
    LOGOData capture
    To substiantiate and validate kite performance we record data in-flight. Using an array of IMU, GPS and pressure sensors.
    05.LEARNING↴ Flight performance
    validation
    LOGOFlight performance
    Combining simulation, CFD and data capture provides historical data which increases our accuracy in future simulation.
    Data feedback loop - Improving design & simulation with captured performance data - Positive findings won't get lost in future designs
