About Us

We are the aerodynamics experts. We understand that aerodynamic design is integrated into everyday life – it impacts the speed of your car as you cruise down the highway, the trajectory of your golf ball as it flies down the fairway, and the energy you can capture from a wind turbine. We are inspired to help your team use aerodynamic design and analysis to improve your product performance.

We have experience working with systems across the spectrum – from unmanned aerial vehicles gliding across the sky at a few centimeters per second to a re-entry vehicles descending through the atmosphere at kilometers per second. This range of experience has allowed us to develop a set of computational tools that can flexibly and efficiently analyze your system.  

We recently applied our optimization techniques to designing a driver for the Golf Channel’s Driver vs. Driver design competition. To see us in action, check out the video below:
