AEDC at forefront of hypersonic test, evaluation

AEDC is developing, with support from the Test Resource Management Center (TRMC), a High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) Unmanned-Aerial-Vehicle (UAV)-based flight test support capability, called SkyRange, to supplement or replace traditional data collection assets, such as ships that are used for hypersonic flight testing. A modified Global Hawk aircraft, seen here Sept. 4, 2020, is part of the SkyRange project to provide increased flight test capacity, operational flexibility and improved quality data collection.
