Research Centre
Hypersonics

In 2002, we changed the game with the first ever atmospheric test of a scramjet. But that’s just one reason we’re recognised as the leading university-based hypersonics research group in the world.

While we continue to revolutionise atmospheric high-speed propulsion, we’re also focused on how new and evolving technologies affect hypersonic flight systems, as well as vehicle design for planetary entry and hypervelocity flight.

By developing and evaluating transformational technologies for the aerospace and defence industries, we’re constantly pushing the boundaries of what’s possible for high-speed transport, space access and exploration.
