Scramjet development from research to prototyping (2006–2017)

Abstract:
Queensland is poised to be the home of an exciting new aerospace industry based on UQ's successful HyShot Flight Program. The scramjet technology developed in this program is a 'disruptive technology' that will change our approach to transportation. It is at a level of development between the fundamental and the prototyping statge. The project will couple the talenst of UQ and Boeing Australia, with the assistance of the DSTO to develop advanced scramjet designs and undertake prolonged flight tests at speeds of 8000 km/hr to allow the alliance partners to engage in major international fundamental and prototyping activities.
