Essentially, they are selling a spoiler. The way they can claim "doubling the drag" may be as follows: The device spoils lift, thereby reducing lift cofficient. This results in the aircraft either having to fly faster to make the same lift, or at a higher AoA. Analysis of airfoil drag polars do show a sharp reduction of Lift/Drag ratio as AoA ...
