Box kite

Box Kite

  • Invented by Lawrence Hargrave in 1893

  • Platform for developing observation military kites

  • Strong to withstand the forces of the wind and weight, but it must also be light to keep the weight low

Jake s design

Jake’s Design

This kite will be able to monitor the weather.

Also, this kite will be available for sport.


Parafoil

Parafoil

  • Designed by DominaJalbert in 1964

  • Air cells capture air and provide lift

  • More lift than a traditional parachute

  • Very controllable because of its slow rate of descent

  • Used to recover space equipment

Delta Kite

  • Simple Design

  • Large surface area

  • Light weight

Testing

Testing

  • After many man hours the delta kite was not strong enough to survive the forces of flight

  • Re-design

    • Stronger frame

    • Also failed

  • Use stronger materials for outer frame

    • More surface area = more lift
