UDRI Hypersonic Wind Tunnel Model

Research for Efficiency and Safety at Hypersonic Speeds

UDRI's hypersonic and hypervelocity research supports our customers' efforts to better understand and mitigate the thermal and aerodynamic stresses involved in hypersonic flight (over five times the speed of sound). We work to make hypersonic flight a safer and more efficient reality.
