Drafted flying power
Recently, developers began to devote more time to the creation of a variety of devices that are designed to help people in disaster management. New Wave Energy Company proposed a solution to one of the major problems that happen after the disaster – power supply problems.
Recovering energy system rather laborious and lengthy process, and new development is to become one of the temporary solutions, providing electricity to the necessary places. Produces electricity once the new device in two ways: by using solar and wind generator . With this new device will be equipped with its own propellers that can lift it into the air to a certain height.
Aircraft itself consists of a square solar cell with a side of 20 meters, which are installed at the corners of the screws to lift into the air, writes huffingtonpost.co.uk. Located underneath the propellers wind generator. Photovoltaics solar deposited on a thin, durable and easy to film, which spanned the entire upper surface of the device.
Thanks to its low weight flying power can reach a height of 15 kilometers, where it will not interfere with aircraft airways. Solar panel and wind generator will produce electricity to be transmitted to the ground in the form of streams of electromagnetic microwave radiation. On land, in turn, are equipped with special receiving antenna which picks up the signal and will convert it into electrical energy.

Of course, this development is not so smooth as we would like. According to calculations, the device can generate up to 100 kilowatts of power, some of which will go to maintain themselves in the air, and some will still be lost in the conversion of electricity into microwaves and back. Therefore, the final consumer will not come as much electricity.
As you might guess, the unit of New Wave Energy can not fully provide the city with electricity, as for medium-sized cities will need at least a thousand of these devices, which is economically disadvantageous. This development is intended only to simplify obtaining energy in places where there are no other ways to conduct electricity.
To implement such a project development company New Wave Energy need 500,000 dollars. This amount they want to collect using the service Kickstarter, and if all goes according to plan, the first device we will see in six to eight months. For now we will use small aircraft for mail delivery vehicles .
