Dr. Wissa from the University of IL has developed a bio-mimetic structure which can suppress turbulence and control air flow. Compared to current technologies, it is a much smaller device. It sits near the leading edge of an aircraft wing, suppressing turbulence, offering better maneuverability and flight control.
