A New Standard in Sustainability

Tamarack sets a new standard in sustainable aviation with technology that is proven to reduce CO2 and fuel burn for existing aircraft. And it's available now.

Sustainable Aviation - Today

Most green aviation technologies, like sustainable aviation fuel, aircraft electrification, and improved engines and airframes, only deliver incremental benefits and require entirely new fleets, making implementation years into the future and requiring an enormous economic investment. The aviation industry needs technology that delivers truly game-changing reductions in carbon emission. Our SMARTWING™ technology delivers an astounding reduction of CO2 and other emissions.

Our technology can be adapted to fit any existing aircraft quickly and economically, has been certified by the FAA and EASA, and is available now. SMARTWING™ Technology is proven, having already been retrofitted to over 150 aircraft, delivering extraordinary results.

How Does it Work?

In order to create the most aerodynamically efficient aircraft, we first extend the wings. Long, slender, or 'high aspect ratio' wings, like those of a glider, are the most fuel efficient. We then add a large winglet to minimize wing tip vortices and the associated drag. Both are achieved without the need for heavy structural reinforcement to the wing. All this is made possible through our patented wingtip load alleviation device.

This unique combination delivers maximum efficiency without the weight penalties incurred by traditional winglets, meaning Tamarack's Active Winglets produce up to 5 times greater efficiency than any previous winglet design. This technology represents a new generation of wing and winglet design.

Working Together For The Future

Tamarack believes in a collaborative approach to sustainability as an aviation leader and member of the ICAO Global Coalition for Sustainable Aviation. In order to reach our industry goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050, we must work together to maximize the benefits. In the short term this could be flying Tamarack's Active Winglet technology combined with operational improvements such as flying at higher altitudes where engines operate more efficiently and, in the medium term powering Active Winglet aircraft using Sustainable Aviation Fuels or hybrid engines.

The longer-term forecast for replacement of current fleets with ultra-efficient aircraft remains a distant target. It is crucial that carbon reduction technologies are widely adopted by the existing global aircraft fleet as soon as possible.

While our technology offers the greatest reduction in emissions of any retrofittable modification available today, we recognize that this innovation is only as strong as the aviation community's belief in flying more sustainably. This starts not only with Tamarack's efforts, but with a combined effort from other experts in aerospace.

We aren't just imagining a world where flying is green - we have already started the journey with SMARTWING™ Technology.
