Australian Space Commemorative Envelopes.

March 22, 2010

AUSTRALIAN and US defence scientists have conducted the successful test flight of HIFiRE 1, at the Woomera test range on the 22 March 2010.

The series of up to 10 planned hypersonic flight experiments are part of a joint research program between the Defence Science and Technology Organisation and the US Air Force, designated as the Hypersonic International Flight Research Experimentation (HIFiRE).

HIFiRE is investigating hypersonic technology (the study of flight exceeding five times the speed of sound) and its application to advanced scramjet-powered space launch vehicles
