Supersonic Cruise Technology Roadmap 861685

One of the three National Aeronautical R&D Goals of the President's Office of Science and Technology Policy was the attainment of long-distance supersonic cruise capability. NASA was asked to lead the development of a “Technology Roadmap” for this goal. The roadmap identified critical technology elements that need to be pursued and provided an outline of the most effective approach for achieving technology readiness. The effort, briefly addressed in this paper, was intended to provide a first top level framework to support the preparation of more detailed technical plans through the combined efforts of private and public sectors of the aeronautics community.
