(U) An outgrowth of the space vehicle technologies and Hypersonics (TT-03) initiatives, the HyperSoar program will develop a dual use capability of an intercontinental global delivery vehicle and a first stage reusable space access vehicle. The Rapid On-orbit Anomaly Surveillance and Tracking program seeks to provide a space-based capability to detect and track on-orbit objects with rapid revisit rates and low latencies. The Low Cost Tactical Imager program will develop a spacecraft to provide high resolution imaging day or night using extremely lightweight optics and a compact design capable of being launched on a Pegasus air launch booster. The Tactical Pointing Determination of Imaging Spacecraft program will develop relocatable space surveillance radar to provide near-real time pointing determination of imaging spacecraft to the warfighter.

Sweet huh?

Is Hyper-Soar US' next strategic bomber? Probably not. Infact, B-3 will not even be supersonic. The B3 bomber is a subsonic extension of the existing B-2 Spirit flying wing. US Air Combat Command initiated the Future Stirke Aircraft or FSA study with the nation's three prime contractors for airframes - Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrop Grumman to look ahead and develop concpts for the heavy bomber. Couple of years ago, Nothrop Grumman came out with 2 different design studies. One hypersonic waverider, another a Mach 2 supercruiser. The third design was not revealed.


Could this plane in fact be the B-3?
