15:30 - 16:00 Afternoon Networking Break & Meetings

16:00 - 16:30 Fostering Hypersonic Innovation through Decisive Academic Research and Collaboration

Dr. Phillip Ligrani - Eminent Scholar in Propulsion, Professor of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Alabama at Huntsville

In order for the DoD and Military Services to achieve their hypersonic mission goals, it will require a combination of collaboration, partnership development, and dynamic research across multiple sectors to ensure a timely delivery of capabilities needed. Whether academia, private sector, DoD, or non-DoD Government Agencies, spurring hypersonic advancement through effective research and S&T collaborative efforts is a must.


-Means to foster improved collaboration despite sensitive nature of hypersonic research

-Outlook on DoD hypersonic delivery timelines: where is additional research needed?

-Developing avenues for future S&T and research collaboration
