US Airways 319 N767UW Question

As usual i was viewing the trip reports and came across this picture of a US Airways 319 N767UW. I was just wondering what the "device" is on the side of the fuselage:

Don't know what is for. But it sure does NOT improve the aerodynamics of the aircraft. It is also installed with an external doubler.
