This project continued to optimize the design of the WPI Rotary Kite Powered Water Pump. This system is intended to provide cheap and reliable access to clean drinking water for developing nations. The main results of the project include producing a desired flow rate of about 600 L/hour, implementing a kite pump frame that lowered the center of gravity and reduced height below seven feet, producing an improved kite control box with remote control capabilities, implementing a rotary spring for kite retraction, and demonstrating intended control of the kite.
