Hypersonic Weapons

The development of hypersonic weapons would result in projectiles traveling at speeds greater than 3,800 miles per hour, making them nearly impossible to intercept. Hypersonic technology developments have far-reaching effects on defense, transportation, and space programs. Building both offensive and defensive hypersonic capabilities is, and will continue to be, a top priority for scientific inquiry.
