Hypersonics Training Short Course by Tonex

Space Operations Specialist (SCOS)™

Hypersonics Short Course is a 2-day introduction to hypersonics technologies. This course is especially beneficial for participants who want to see the “big picture” in order to communicate with technical as well as non-technical individuals.

Hypersonics Short Course covers the most important aspects of hypersonics technology without getting too involved in the technical nitty gritty.

Participants will learn the advantages and challenges of using technology five times the speed of sound.

Additionally, participants will learn about both private and military applications of hypersonics, as well as what to expect from future use cases.

Hypersonics research is important both for aeronautics and space research to enable extremely fast travel on Earth as well as for future space exploration.

Hypersonics technology also has significant military implications as it dramatically shortens the timeline to strike a target while enhancing predictability. The DoD plans to develop leap-ahead and cost effective technologies like hypersonics for air, land and sea operational forces.
