NASA/GRC is refining its hypersonic portfolio to ensure that it is most effectively aligned to support national priorities to utilize research, computational tools, and experimental capabilities in support of technology and system development as well as flight test in support of national needs. NASA/GRC is issuing two contracts where each will conduct a study on future US hypersonic propulsion capability needs from the hypersonic propulsion industry viewpoint as well as their company’s perspective.


The initial national needs are primarily defense related and NASA/GRC intends to purchase the services from Aerojet Rocketdyne and Orbital ATK because both of these companies are presently working under DoD hypersonic programs and have the highly specialized knowledge and expertise to effectively and economically provide NASA/GRC with the requested information.
