Using computational fluid dynamics modeling, Aero Design Labs creates a 'high-definition map" of Boeing 737 aircraft. Then it works with partners to develop a drag reduction kit that can save fuel costs and reduce carbon emissions.
"Each part of the kit plays a part in capturing and redirecting the airflow, providing a holistic solution to reduce drag," ADL's Chief Commercial Officer Chris Jones told Dallas Innovates.
