Addressing technical challenges to develop hypersonic ﬂight
The Notre Dame Hypersonic Systems Initiative engages the University's broad expertise in engineering and science to address the technical challenges of developing efficient, hypersonic ﬂight vehicles.
The Initiative fosters a “system-of-systems” approach that recognizes the interdependence of the different design elements, and provides coordination at their interfaces.
