    Abstract

    JAXA is developing Mach 5 hypersonic turbojet engine technology that can be applied in a future hypersonic transport. Now, in Jet Engine Technology Research Center of JAXA, the experimental study, which uses a 1/10 scale-model engine, is conducted. In parallel to engine development activities, a new supersonic flight-testing vehicle for the hypersonic turbojet engine is under development since 2004. In this paper, the system configuration of the flight-testing vehicle is outlined and development status is reported.
