What We Do
Building and Operating Hypersonic Testbeds
Why Hypersonic Testbeds?
We believe that innovative flight research and testing programs are key to enabling our nation to develop emerging hypersonic technologies into operational systems.
Routine Access to the Hypersonic Flight Environment
Our system is designed around the concept of iterative flight testing, enabling us to minimize your overall exposure to risk when it comes to mission cost, deployment schedule and technology investment.
Our approach enables rapid turnaround and cost effectiveness.
- Recovery of valuable payloads and experiments
