Boom Supersonic, a Denver-based aerospace company, has announced that XB-1, its supersonic demonstrator, is scheduled to roll out on October 7, 2020, the company said.
XB-1 is the world´s first independently developed supersonic jet and will demonstrate key technologies for Overture, Boom´s commercial airliner, such as advanced carbon fiber composite construction, computer-optimized high-efficiency aerodynamics, and an efficient supersonic propulsion system. XB-1 is the end product of years of development effort, including multiple wind tunnel tests, dozens of structural tests, hundreds of simulation iterations, and tens of thousands of work hours.
Boom Supersonic is bringing supersonic flight back to the skies with Overture. Overture is designed and committed to standards of speed, safety, and sustainability.
