Not much more said, just not in govie contract speak.
The hypersonic cruise missile contracted by the USAF must be capable of being carried on fighter and bomber aircraft, according to the service’s solicitation notice
The contract is a major step forward for the Hypersonic Conventional Strike Weapon program, an Air Force-led effort that is the second of two U.S. efforts to develop a hyper-sonic weapon. The other is a project jointly managed by the Air Force and DARPA, the Defense Department’s weapons development agency, called the Tactical Boost Glide program.
