Dr. Kummer has a unique combination of technical and business experience covering
a wide range of engineering and manufacturing disciplines. He has helped design,
develop, and market dozens of products including unmanned air vehicles, military
tactical gear, composite materials, wind turbines, air purifiers, and many others.
As a PhD candidate at Syracuse University, Dr. Kummer’s research focused on the
application of computational fluid dynamics to the simulation of the cross-flow fan and
integration of the CFF into a high-lift propulsive wing. Several prototypes have been
built demonstrating controlled flight of this unique platform.
