Some sort of low eight high torque wind turbine using fabric blades (and fabric duct), seems to use a pole/wire tensegrity structure

The PDF contains info on wheelguns, giant counterrotating flywheel hoops in space to supply power to SDI weapons, mainly railguns/particle accelerator cannons/free electron lasers that need huge amounts of power right now. Appears to expect to be trickle charged over time by a small space nuclear reactor (SNAP? atomic teakettle?). Also has an interesting microwave power beaming scenario from a nuke in mars synchronous orbit to a ground rover, high performance radiators, including a fabric heatpipe radiator, a curie point magnetic liquid droplet radiator, and other power conversion concepts.

Humdinger :: Windbelt Large
Using the buzzing effect of a taut belt in wind, these guys use a piezoelectric fabric to recover the vibration energy of the belt as it resonates in the passing wind turbulence. The only big issue I can see is the noise generated, as by design you lose a fair amount of wind generated power to acoustic loses
