Boom Supersonic - Relaunching Commercial Supersonic Air Travel
Posted Wednesday February 12 at 8:5pm
Boom Supersonic is redefining what it means to fly by building Overture, history’s fastest commercial airliner. Overture will travel at a speed of Mach 2.2 and a cruising altitude of up to 60,000 feet.
Due to the complexity of designing for supersonic speeds, Boom Supersonic engineers need to be able to test multiple conditions and try out many different design ideas. They also work with a very short time-to-concept, which means they need a solution that is fast to set up and even faster to get results.
