Traditional Heat Transfer And Fluid Mechanics Investigations For Hypersonic Flight

Traditional Heat Transfer And Fluid Mechanics Investigations For Hypersonic Flight

Dr. Phil Ligrani on Physical Phenomena Associated With Hypersonic Weapon Vehicles

Take a deep dive into the five different areas of strategic capabilities to address enduring military problems.

  • Delivering hypersonic capabilities - speed and reach of disruption and lethality 
  • Material challenges, opportunities to facilitate hypersonic flight
  • Technical priorities for propulsion and thermal management.
  • Navigation, guidance requirements - “effects chain” -- the command and control, networking and sensor technology sufficient to achieve the requisite guidance, targeting and precision flight.
  • Integrating hypersonic weapons into operational environments
