The DynaSoar™ is a three-seat fighter-sized vehicle with a high performance delta wing configuration which provides great flight characteristics at both subsonic and supersonic speeds.
The vehicle is powered by a rocket engine, enabling it to accelerate to speeds just over 3,500 fps (2,386 mph) and reach altitudes in excess of 350,000 ft. (106 km) providing the experience of Zero-G for four to six minutes!
The cabin is designed to maintain a comfortable temperature and pressure for the crew while providing an excellent view of the Earth from the edge of space. It is constructed with many of the same systems as a normal jet aircraft, but also includes the features required for suborbital flight capability including a rocket engine, reaction control system (RCS), and internal air supply.
The DynaSoar™ operates from ordinary airfields well within the established rules and practices for experimental aircraft.
Universal Aerospace, Inc. is targeting the DynaSoar™ Series of SubOrbital and Orbital spaceplanes for our RocketRides™, as well as Small Satellite Launches.
