BRYAN-COLLEGE STATION, Oct. 5, 2021—Proposals from 18 U.S. university-led research teams from the University Consortium for Applied Hypersonics (UCAH), totaling $25.5 million, were selected as awardees for prototyping contracts by […]
A year ago, we were in the final stages of bringing the University Consortium to life. Working with the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station, we were putting the final touches […]
In the 8 months since the UCAH was established we have accomplished a great deal together. We built a strong, inclusive, and collaborative organization to achieve the goals congress set […]
Sarah Armstrong was named director of the Joint Hypersonics Transition Office Systems Engineering Field Activity at Naval Surface Warfare Center, in the Crane Division, in January 2021. She aims to break the nation’s hypersonic systems strategy into pieces of technologies for researchers to address.
Joint Hypersonics Transition Office (JHTO) and Naval Service Warfare Center, Crane Division, within the U.S. Department of Defense, are sponsoring a video contest on hypersonics for high school and undergraduate students. First prize is $1,000!
As part of the University Consortium for Applied Hypersonics, Lockheed Martin’s university engagement is helping to provide a path for advances in the basic understanding of future hypersonic systems.
The U.S. Department of Defense’s joint hypersonics transition office is working with the Naval Surface Warfare Center Crane Division to expand its engineering expertise. The division was set up in April to help move hypersonic weapons from research-and-development efforts to official programs of record.
On Oct. 26, 2020, the U.S. Department of Defense selected the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station to lead a national hypersonic research consortium. The consortium , made up of some of our nation’s top research universities, will work to modernize hypersonic flight capabilities.
Moving at hypersonic speed—five times faster than the speed of sound—comes with a variety of challenges. Researchers at Texas A&M will be addressing these challenges through a combination of sophisticated mathematical computer modeling and cutting-edge experimentation to accurately predict maneuverability and survivability.
