The importance of Terreplane technology goes past the interest of one company. As such, information and R&D advances that a company would normally keep as highly confidential is shared openly on this page through the below links.
2/25/18 - Terreplane's Lab Operational for Vehicle Prototype
(L:D ratio optimization, arm-mechanism optimization)
Lift-to-Drag (L:D) ratios of Terreplane vehicles are a critical design feature that impacts energy consumption. Energy economy is directly proportional to these L:D values (a doubling of the L:D results in double the miles per gallon). During the last few weeks, Terreplane Technologies, LLC has upgraded wind tunnel facilities to include the capability of measuring L:D ratios of prototype vehicles. The new facilities provide the capability to Design, 3D print, and document L:D ratios of several prototype vehicles designs in 24-hour turnaround times.
