The Hypersonic Vehicle Simulation Institute is a national effort aiming to bring together DoD, DoE, NASA, academic and industry hypersonic research to address current shortcomings and advance the state-of-the-art in hypersonic vehicle simulation. With the overall goal of accelerating technology development to transition superior defense capabilities for the US, HSVI’s efforts in the hypersonic flight are tangential to this total Force effort.
Building off his first session with IDGA at our inaugural Hypersonic Weapons Summit, Dr. Ligrani will join us once more to provide a thorough review on his and University of Alabama's efforts to guide the development of heat transfer and fluid mechanic to enable continued hypersonic flight capability.
In order to meet the next-generation of hypersonic capabilities, it will take a streamlined acquisition roadmap that integrates high-level service and DoD priorities. Under Secretary Ellen M. Lord, USD for Acquisition and Sustainment, will provide a strategic overview of DoD acquisition efforts as it relates to future hypersonic dominance.
The Defense Technical Information Center has served the information needs of the Defense Community for nearly 70 years, delivering the tools and data needed to empower the research and engineering enterprise to accelerate ongoing technological developments. this session will highlight some of their collaborative research efforts.
