PROBLEM VS SOLUTION

AIRFOIL OPTIMISATION

A QUANTUM LEAP FORWARD IN WING TECHNOLOGY

The world’s first commercially viable, fully adaptive morphing wing technology. This biomimicry-inspired technology’s scope of application is limitless, and solves the current problem of inefficiency and limitations of rigid wing tech. The simple and robust design uses proven technologies and materials. To date, patents have been granted in 45 countries, including the US, China, and Europe.

“The Brayfoil results in drastic advantages in renewable energy, turbines, aircraft, sailing and transportation – providing an unbeatable competitive edge.”

15 YEARS OF R&D BY THE INVENTOR - $3M INVESTED TO DATE

Technology efficacy is supported by academic research and testing, as well as full-size testing validation. Engineering support and testing has been provided by Worley-Parsons and the CSIR. Theoretical aerodynamic analyses also support these technological advantages.

THE AIRFOIL PROBLEM

Every rigid airfoil is optimised
for one windspeed

Any adaptation requires complex mechanics

Rigid wing tech has been undisrupted for decades

The shapes of rigid wings are all inefficient when used outside of their optimal conditions and the quest for an adaptive wing has been ongoing for decades. Flaps and ailerons on aircraft change the performance at different speeds, but add weight and reduce efficiency. ‚ÄčThis problem exists in any industry that a wing shape is used.

THE BRAYFOIL SOLUTION

The active Brayfoil wing opens up efficiency and versatility gains that are currently impossible to access.

A morphing, auto-setting wing, that can vary curvature and thickness as well as reverse to create lift from one side to the other – far surpassing existing rigid wings. Able to change lift and drag characteristics on demand.

THE ULTIMATE SOLUTION IN AERODYNAMICS

VERSATILE. PATENTED WORLDWIDE. MYRIAD APPLICATIONS.

WHY NOW?

Morphing wings, blades and airfoils have been under investigation for decades. The fight against global warming is of utmost importance. Even a small percentage gain is significant in the competitive global marketplace. Biomimicry is accepted as a foundation of key innovations. Materials science has advanced rapidly – particularly in composites. Implementation of the Brayfoil reduces fossil fuel usage like no other solution
