THE MILITARY

Forces
Of Nature

Windlift’s completely portable, self-contained airborne wind energy systems can provide power to remote bases while reducing costly fuel resupply runs that strain resources and endanger the lives of US troops.

THE MILITARY

Saving Money
Shipping fuel to remote locations is an ongoing logistics challenge for all branches of the military, which spends as much as $15 billion annually servicing generators overseas. Windlift’s wind energy solutions can reduce fuel requirements by 70-100%, thus considerably reducing costs and logistical efforts.

Saving Lives
Resupply costs aren’t limited to dollars, as fuel resupply-related casualties in theaters of operation like Iraq and Afghanistan have reached as high as 1 casualty for every 24 resupply missions*. By reducing generator fuel requirements, Windlift energy solutions can keep soldiers and Marines out of harm’s way.

Supporting Operations
With the capacity to carry detection and communication equipment payloads of up to 10 lbs., Windlift’s Airborne Power Generators are capable of doubling as persistent intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) devices, enhancing situational awareness of the surrounding area.

DISASTER RECOVERY

The Power
To Survive

Windlift airborne energy systems can be deployed under the most challenging circumstances, providing critical power for recovery efforts wherever and whenever they’re needed most.

DISASTER RECOVERY

Restoring Energy
Windlift Airborne Power Generator (APG) systems can generate enough energy to create invaluable “micro-grids” in the middle of disaster-stricken areas.

Re-Establishing Contact
With the capacity to carry up to 10 lbs. of telecommunications equipment, Windlift systems can provide disaster teams with instant, mission-critical communication networks.

Providing Reconnaissance
Surveillance equipment mounted on Windlift’s wing units can equip disaster teams with unobstructed views of the surrounding area, allowing them to identify and assess issues, and more safely and effectively manage relief efforts on the ground.

TELECOM

Calls Of
The Wild

Windlift airborne energy systems can double as instant telecommunications servers, capable of establishing reliable, local signals in the most remote locations.

TELECOM

Enabling Communications
Combined with communications payloads, Windlift’s Airborne Power Generators (APGs) can become instant cellular “towers,” establishing communication networks in underdeveloped regions.

Connecting Communities
The exceptional mobility of Windlift’s wind energy solutions can provide energy to previously isolated areas of the developing world. In addition to powering as many as 40 households, a cellular payload-enabled APG can allow local residents to connect with surrounding communities.

Sustaining Contact
Because Windlift APGs can power themselves, maneuver autonomously, and maintain continuous operation for up to five years without maintenance, they are capable of providing reliable communications throughout the process of developing and improving the community’s infrastructure.

AGRICULTURE

Harvest
The Wind

Windlift airborne energy systems can significantly reduce operational costs and create opportunities for farmers to monetize more of their acreage throughout the entire year.

AGRICULTURE

Powering Operations
Windlift’s airborne wind energy systems can provide a reliable source of power for water pumps and other essential equipment.

Reducing Costs
The efficiency of Windlift’s airborne wind energy solutions can allow farms of all sizes to reduce day-to-day expenses by powering operations at a fraction of the cost of other energy sources.

Expanding The Possibilities
Windlift’s Airborne Power Generators (APGs) can create agricultural opportunities for farmers in the developing world by supplying regions that were previously difficult to cultivate due to lack of affordable power.

Maximizing The Land
Windlif’s self-contained energy systems can enable landowners to create their own wind farms capable of generating surplus energy to sell back to the grid and other third-party companies.
