The future aircraft design concept of the Supersonic Green Machine for supersonic flight over land comes from the team led by the Lockheed Martin Corporation. Through the use of an “inverted-V” engine-under wing configuration the team’s simulation shows possibility for achieving overland flight by dramatically lowering the level of sonic booms. Other revolutionary technologies help achieve range, payload and environmental goals.
This supersonic cruise aircraft could enter service in the 2030-2035 timeframe.
This future airplane could be the one making commercial supersonic air travel possible.
