British defence contractor Qinetiq will test Hyshot III, tomorrow in Australia in an effort to bring commercial scramjets a little closer to fruition.
The full story is here;

Thats pretty interesting. I hope to hear about this on the news in the near future. I dont think that Mach7 travel will be possible in the near future though lol...You would have alot of sick passengers. But, I believe that it will open new doors to new things that can be developed. Good job on the research, and thanks for providing the source.

Brodband I totally agree with you that it will lead to more devolvement & advancement & yes it’s hard to imagine the jump from our old commercial jets flying around 500 mph to Mach 7 scramjets with paying passengers (feeling ill LOL)
I do believe however the technology has already been secretly perfected, though obviously NOT for commercial purposes.

Anyone know what happened to Qinetiq's SHyFE?

The SHYFE programme (Sustained Hypersonic Flight Experiment) last I heard was aiming to have 2 flying by the end of 2006.

End 2006 now?! The last I can find on it was a first flight 2005. Hope it's still going though.
