High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion Technical Committee


 HSABPTC logo     Welcome! We are delighted you are visiting us. The High Speed Air Breathing Propulsion (HSABP) Technical Committee brings together experts in the field. The scope of the HSABP TC is the application of mechanical design, fluid dynamics and thermodynamics to the science and technology of system that enable supersonic and hypersonic air vehicle propulsion such as ramjets and scramjets, combined cycle and unsteady propulsion, and other advanced air breathing propulsion.
