AWE Kites Lifetime Enhancement

The materials in the kites we are currently using for producing airborne wind energy are based on standard kite/sailing materials. But our kites need to produce energy 24/7 under high load and therefore the current materials have their limit. The internship will focus on research, sourcing and testing new types of materials.
