The paper will review some of the recent successful applications of flow control in air related to the potential transition of these technologies to underwater applications. Most of the early work in flow control focused on steady aerodynamic benefits. More recent technologies have linked unsteady technology development with an understanding of unsteady flow physics. Such time-dependency requires more complex control methodologies and potentially alternate sensory information for control. From the survey, we find that flow control technologies are reaching higher technology readiness levels for aerodynamic applications compared with hydrodynamic applications.
