Science & Tech Spotlight: Hypersonic Weapons
Science & Tech Spotlight: Hypersonic Weapons, Report No. GAO-19-705SP, Sep 2019
Hypersonic weapons, once developed, would fly faster than 3,800 mph and be extremely difficult to defend against. Advances in hypersonic technologies have significant implications for national security, as well as for transportation and space systems. Research and development of offensive and defensive capabilities in hypersonics is and will remain critically important.
