Three system integrators are participating in a Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) concept study aimed at developing breakthrough technologies for sustained, long-range supersonic flight with substantially diminished sonic booms. The Quiet Supersonic Platform (QSP) is a two-year, $35 million program funded by DARPA. The goal is to find a way to design a supersonic aircraft with a sonic boom low enough that the aircraft can fly unrestricted over land. Current Federal ...
