This paper provides an overview of the experimental aerodynamics test program to ensure mission success for the autonomous flight of the Hyper-X Research Vehicle (HXRV). The HXRV is a 12-ft long, 2700 Ib lifting body technology demonstrator designed to flight demonstrate for the first time a fully airframe integrated scramjet propulsion system. Three flights are currently planned, two at Mach 7 and one at Math 10, beginning in the fall of 2000. The research vehicles will be boosted to thedoi:10.2514/6.2000-4011 fatcat:bmfa3qobwzeo3ahw4mpexntx3q
