X-51 WaveRider
Boeing's barrier-breaking unmanned X-51A WaveRider autonomous flight test demonstrator is leading the way to hypersonic flight. The X-51A WaveRider completed the longest supersonic combustion scramjet-powered flight in history, flying at approximately Mach 5 for 143 seconds. This technology is setting the foundation for hypersonic applications such as access to space, reconnaissance and strike, global reach and commercial transportation.
