The Windlift Man Portable Wind Energy System (MPWES) uses an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to generate 6 kW (peak) of wind energy at 200-500 feet. MPWES integrates with battery storage and a backup generator to provide on-site energy production and storage. The system weighs only 440 lbs. and the renewable energy density (Watts/lb.) will be approximately seven times greater than the GREENS system, the current state-of-the-art solar system deployed by the USMC. The UAV also provides the opportunity for persistent surveillance and communications. Windlift is an engineering and computer programming company developing the next generation of Airborne Wind Energy Systems. The company is looking to obtain enough funding to complete all R&D and build efforts to provide a resilient energy platform for expeditionary use.
