Yes, I think this is it because another Patent of Richard M. Wood is being presented by Solus (see below). I'm a little frustrated by the lack of detail on the above. However more detail is in the larger PDF: http://www.solusinc.com/pdf/2003-01-3377.pdf

Solus - Cross-Flow Vortex Traps


Patent US6986544 - Cross flow vortex trap device and method for reducing the aerodynamic drag ... - Google Patents


Both inventions are depicted in the small PDF/Flyer:
