A small-scale supersonic flight experiment vehicle is being developed. An aerodynamic configuration with a cranked-arrow wing and twin engines was selected. Flight tests of its prototype vehicle were carried out for characterization of its subsonic flights. A revised configuration with an air-turbo-ramjet engine is being designed for higher Mach numbers.
