This paper suggests an incremental approach towards the integration of increasing-fidelity aerodynamic modelling techniques within an agile design methodology including vehicle and systems design activities as well as mission analyses. The paper reports the experience gained bye the authors in the H2020 STRATOFLY Project and focuses on a Mach 8 cruiser concept.
