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:

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:
Architect, Artist and Designer of Objects

1977 Porsche 911s Targa
1998 Chevy S-10 Pick-Up truck
1989 Scat II HP Hovercraft
