Showing pilots current and future sonic boom impact areas and intensities so they can adjust trajectories is expected to play a key role in securing regulatory approval for low-boom supersonic flight over land, and NASA is seeking proposals to flight test a suitable cockpit display. The contract is one of several to be awarded as NASA continues to prepare for a hoped-for flight demonstrator that would allow the agency to collect the data on community response to low booms that is needed to ...
