U.S. Air Force donates $ 60 million to aerospace startup Hermeus to fund hypersonic flight tests
Founded by former members of SpaceX, Blue Origin andGeneration Orbit, Hermeus plans to launch the Quarterhorse demonstration aircraft this decade. It will become the fastest reusable aircraft in regular service. Its titanium construction is slated to withstand ultra-high speeds.
In recent years, the United States Air Force has shown interest insuch high-speed commercial aircraft, not only for military use, but also as a potential long-term replacement for the President's Air Force One. It is not only the transport of the head of state, but also the control center in case of a nuclear war or an emergency in the country.
