Every aircraft takes advantage of Natural Laminar Flow (NLF) to some extent. Designers and Aerodynamicists strive to generate as much NLF as possible but always end up with compromises. Natural laminar flow at supersonic speeds was proven to exist in a rocket test in 1947. Dr. Richard Tracy had a vision to design a supersonic jet that took advantage of this technology to the fullest. His doctoral thesis and subsequent career have evolved around this technology. Aerion’s patented tapered bi-convex wing proven in 1999 on a NASA F-15 test bed was indeed the starting point of our technology advantage. Aerion through judicious use of CFD, MDO, wind tunnel and continuing real world flight testing has harnessed Supersonic Natural Laminar Flow for use today and well into the future of aviation.
