The in-plane curvature of the wing considerably reduces the aerodynamic drag especially in the transonic regime where the nonuniform distribution of the sweep angle of the curved wing leads to a reduction in the wave drag effects.
The new eSTIC technology conquers the limitations of resolution affected by the sweep angle and artifacts associated with color/power Doppler ultrasound of the fetal heart.

Most specifically in the firm's cross-hairs are all the electric motors that drive remotely-controlled devices, such as overhead light gun turrets, missile launchers and autoloaders, the sweep angle of which need to be accurately monitored.
At low speeds, the wing sweep angle is relatively low, providing an efficient, low-speed aerodynamic design.
As a result, the animals that contact the ground with a steeper limb angle are more easily able to convert the vertical displacement of the center of mass into horizontal movement with less effort since they move through a smaller sweep angle.
The connecting tubes between the inlet and outlets are made from seamless tubes and the indexing tube has a gentle sweep angle which creates a direction changing conveyong line valve that minimises product degradation.
The attack or sweep angle of the blades is generally much more severe than it is with most conventional broadheads.
The design will consist of two, pressure plotted, wings of different sweep angle and there will be a requirement for significant modularity with removable leading edge, trailing edge and wing tip devices.
