As far as I know it is not in use in today's nautical world, but I'll have to say I am no where near being up to date on the mechanical operation of vessels.

Some aircraft use the same method called air brakes,they deploy from the side of the fuselage,one aircraft I flew in the Mohawk had them.

I hope they shouted a "Hear This" over the Tannoy before deploying them as I would think the Sick Bay could become rather full.

My immediate thought is the stabilisers attached to the liners in the 30s onwards. Besides stabilising the ship could if rotated up or down slow the ship although with less effect.
