A fluid flow control device, comprising a flow surface over which a fluid flows, a flow effect means located on the flow surface and operated by pressure such that the flow effect means improves the flow characteristics of the flow surface, pressure supply means to operate the flow effect means and at least one microelectromechanical system ("MEMS") valve means which controls the flow effect means by controlling the supply of pressure to the flow effect means from the pressure supply means.
[ What is claimed is:] [1.] A fluid flow control device, comprising:a) a flow surface over which fluid flows;b) a flow effect means incorporated into said flow surface and operated by pressure, such that said flow effect means improves the flow characteristics of said flow surface;c) pressure supply means to operate said flow effect means; andd) at least one MEMS valve means which controls said flow effect means by controlling the supply of pressure to said flow effect means from said pressure supply means.
