Hypersonic aircraft

A hypersonic plane.

Technology is in the process of development!

 

 

Hypersonic aircraft – aircraft with hypersonic flight speed (i.e., greater than or equal to 5M, where M is Mach number) and to maneuver using aerodynamic forces.

Description:

Hypersonic aircraft – aircraft with hypersonic flight speed (i.e., greater than or equal to 5M, where M is Mach number) and to maneuver using aerodynamic forces.

Mach number is the speed of sound in air. Numerical expression of the Mach number depends primarily on altitude (the higher, the lower sound velocity and higher Mach number). At the surface of the Earth Mach 1 is equal to 340 m/s or 1224 km/h and at an altitude of 11 km above the level of the sea – 295 m/s or 1062 km/h.

This plane can fly long distances within a few minutes or tens of minutes.

Development of hypersonic aircraft are maintained by all States. The state, which is the first massively build this type of aircraft and learn its production, will be able to provide dominance in the air.

 


Benefits (expected):

– high maneuverability,

will be able to go to the nearest space,

– is free to plan and to withstand the tremendous overload

may have a speed 5-10 Max, 6 120-12 240 km/h and above,

– working altitude range – 25-140 km.
