This is interesting:



ESTABLISHMENT OF JOINT TECHNOLOGY OFFICE ON HYPERSONICS- The Secretary of Defense shall establish within the Office of the Secretary of Defense a joint technology office on hypersonics.


That's from the Pending '07 DoD appropriations bill.

Does this mean that the gov't is seeing bigger dividend payoffs with hypersonic weaponry?

Actually the Joint Technology Office on Hypersonics is designed to bring all of the nearly dozen hypersonic vehicle programs under one roof.

The reason for this is to eliminate the massive redundancy of research and development efforts as has been so rampant within the various programs so far. The instances of taxpayer money going to nearly identical research programs has become the norm, not the exception.

To that end, Congress has issued a directive for NASA, DARPA and the USAF Research Lab to consolidate their hypersonic efforts or risk huge punitive budget cuts.

The bigger payoff you refer to is in the taxpayer's pockets, at least this time we won't have to pay for the same research being conducted for each vehicle being developed.

This is a good thing as it should actually help streamline hypersonic development by sharing of knowledge between programs.
