Smart Weak Links
Weak Links are a basic safety measure for towed kites, for example, if there is a reel-jam during a step-tow glide-away phase. The simplest weak links just break at a specified load, but this is not always a desirable response. A Smart Weak Link could reason about the multi-sensed situation and decide whether to release.
