+ - Mach 20 and beyond? DARPA program to develop hypersonic flight ->

Submitted by

coondoggie writes "Is it possible to develop an aircraft that can fly — and survive — at over 20-times the speed of sound? It has been an idea that has met with only minimal success over the years but that may change. Next month the big idea guys at the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency will hold a briefing to detail exactly what it expects out of a new program that will seek to develop hypersonic aircraft or missile technology. DARPA says the goal of its Integrated Hypersonics program is "to develop, mature, and test next- generation technologies needed for global-range, maneuverable, hypersonic flight at Mach 20 and above for missions ranging from space access to survivable, time-critical transport to conventional prompt global strike."
