Hypersonic Flying Tech Could Help Us Reach Any Location on Earth in One Hour

Posted by in category: military

Hypersonic technology vehicles could revolutionize the way that we get around the globe. Research and testing is currently being carried out by several companies.

There are several hypersonic crafts under development, and they could greatly alter the way that we travel. Indeed, many of these designs have already provided valuable insights into how we can quickly and efficiently get from one side of the globe to the other.

For example, the Falcon Hypersonic Technology Vehicle 2 (HTV-2) is a prototype for an unmanned military aircraft, and the DARPA team behind the tech claims that it is the fastest ever built. According to Lockheed-Martin, the speeds that this craft was designed for are remarkable. They assert that, “at HTV-2 speeds, flight time between New York City and Los Angeles would be less than 12 minutes.”
