The CENTRELINE Project aims to demonstrate the proof of concept for a ground-breaking approach to synergistic propulsion-airframe integration. The concept features a turbo-electrically driven propulsive device at the aft-fuselage that entrains and re-energises the fuselage boundary layer flow in order to directly compensate the viscous drag effects in the fuselage wake field.
