June 20, 2011: Hypersonic Jet Will Slash Flight Times.within United States Air Force lore for the USAF has been using such launch methodsSimilarly, the North American X-15 rocket plane was launched from underwing of a Boeing B-52 Stratofortress. US Militarys Hypersonic X-51A Aircraft Fails Seconds After Launch.Photos: Amazing X-Planes from the X-1 to XV-15. Hypersonic Waverider - How the USAF X-51A Scramjet Works | Video. The Air Force said the previous record for a hypersonic scramjet burn was 12 seconds. [Related: Secret X-37B space plane spotted by amateur skywatchers]. Is this the secret US Air Force hypersonic plane capable of reaching 4600 MPH?The silvery shape was spotted at the end of a runway in the swamplands of the Sunshine State, US. The North American X-15 was a hypersonic rocket-powered aircraft operated by the United States Air Force and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration as part of the X- plane series of experimental aircraft.

A concise history of the X-15 research airplane / by Dennis R. Jenkins. Now where did we put that hypersonic drone plane? Built by Lockheed Martin under a DARPA program, the Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 (HTV-2) The Air Force capitalized on this research to build the hypersonic Dyna-Soar space plane.That said I believe the current USAF hypersonic technology roadmap is on the right track. In aerodynamics, hypersonic speeds are speeds that are highly supersonic.
Since the 1970sMartin was developing a Mach 6 (4,567 mph 7,350 km/h 1 mi/s) plane for the United States Air Force. The Air Force plans to test a hypersonic missile by the end of the decade.The Pentagon, whose long record of hypersonic research stretches from the X-15 rocket plane to the Boeing X-51 scramjet The now-retired Concorde supersonic passenger planes used to fly at a cruising speed of about Mach 2.On August 11 the US Air Force tested another hypersonic glider called the HTV-2. 2D Centerline X-Y Plane. JAWS. Planar Shock Topology. USAF High Speed Vision Hypersonic Design Process JAWS Inlet Program. The previous record for a hypersonic scramjet burn was just 12 seconds, according to the report.

Hypersonic Airplane Space Tether Orbital Launch (HASTOL) System: Interim Study Results. At the AIAA Hypersonic Space Plane conference in Glasgow in Scotland in July, a paper submitted by Lapcat-II researchers said their early airliner tests suggested such a design would be greener than While the first supersonic flight used a rocket plane, the first hypersonic flight used a rocket.Operated by the US Air Force and NASA until 1968, the X-15 was an alternative to NASAs approach The U.S Air Force announced on Tuesday that the latest launch of the X-51 hypersonic test aircraft was a failure. review (OSTP, DoD, STPI) NRC Air Force Studies Board Defense Against.

The Red Arrow is a USAF hypersonic fighter plane. The aircraft is launched by a variable pitch launch ramp and powered by twin rockets, and can reach of speeds in excess of 4,000 mph. According to General Bron, head of development for the Foreign Fighter Jet project The first hypersonic research airplane, which used aerodynamic lift to stay aloftThe X-30, dubbed the National AeroSpace Plane, was built to develop supersonic combustion ramjets, or scramjets. A hypersonic successor to the SR-71 has been the ultimate goal for DARPA and the Air Force (USAF) since the early 2000s.
