A pulse-detonation actuator from our Energy & Propulsion lab. It produces high-pressure, pulsating supersonic jets, which help with airflow control in high-speed travel. Active airflow control reduces the drag, noise, and fuel consumption of an aircraft, making for smoother and more efficient flight. #GE #research #science #physics #aviation

  • docpopNeat! Was this shot taken with an iPhone camera? If so, may we post it on www.ObjectiveScenes.com?
  • generalelectric@docpop Thanks! We shot this one on a Canon. You're welcome to use it, all of these photos are also available on our tumblr -http://generalelectric.tumblr.com. We'll call out any iPhone shots in the future, in case you want to grab them!
