    It's not as simple as they say. If you look at the actual research, many different chevon styles and configurations were used. Some produced 'more' noise than baseline, some produced the same, some produced less.

    Please provide a link to that reseach if possible.

    This link looks interesting, lots of pretty charts and pictures.

    My graduate adviser works at Glenn. He's been keeping us up to date on this work. I don't have any raw data, just what he's been telling us.

    From what he says though, the results are very interesting and many times unexpected.

    Coincidentally, I will be at the very same facility tomorrow for some of the same testing we are going to be undertaking.
