X-60A is an airdropped liquid rocket specifically designed for hypersonic flight research. It features tailorable trajectories at hypersonic speeds and flight conditions.
The X-60A rocket vehicle propulsion system is a Hadley liquid rocket engine, which utilizes liquid oxygen and kerosene propellants. The system provides affordable and regular access to high dynamic pressure flight conditions spanning from Mach 5 to Mach 8. In addition, altitudes of 70kft – 130kft are achievable.
The X-60A has an adjustable front end and flight profile to meet the needs of the particular technology under development.
