NASA has begun the preliminary design of a “low boom” supersonic flight demonstration aircraft, as part of its renewed ‘X-planes’ program, under the ‘New Aviation Horizons’ initiative, introduced in the agency’s Fiscal Year 2017 budget. Under the contract a team led by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company of Palmdale, California, will complete a preliminary design for Quiet Supersonic Technology (QueSST). The Lockheed Martin team includes subcontractors GE Aviation of Cincinnati and Tri Models Inc. of Huntington Beach, California.
