HomeAirPlaneHypersoar → HCV-1/WhiteSwift

The Hypersonic Cruise Vehicle HCV-1™/WhiteSwift™ is a hypersonic jet for travelling around the world with a before unimagined speed.
It integrates the most progressive and formerly only envisioned, but now constructed technologies:

  • SOS Hypersoar Catamaran™ concepts,
  • Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), United States Air Force (USAF) and Lockheed Martin
    Force Application and Launch from CONtinental United States (FALCON) Hypersonic Cruise Vehicle (HCV), and
  • Leninets Plasma Hypersonic Vehicle (PHV) Ayaks.

    Due to its outstanding technical concepts and features this class of plane can also be used as an aerospaceplane, as it is done with our Space Transportation System (STS) with Reusable Launch Vehicle (RLV) of the Next Generation (NG), the Space Shuttle NG X-3033™/ MagicStar™.

    Hypersonic Catamaran
    In 2002 we derived from the shapes of off-shore racing powerboats the Hypersoar Catamaran™ shape due to the similar problems and solutions. This resulted in a design with unprecedented

  • aerodynamic efficiency,
  • flight stability, and
  • thermodynamical advantages,

    which were for a hypersonic vehicle not known before. While reducing the drag in the atmosphere, it also delivers the needed lift-off force and lowers drastically the angel of attack of the hypersoar.

    Powertrain Architectures
    Three different types of powertrain architectures can be applied, which are the:

  • Rocket-Based Combined Cycle (RBCC),
    • Linear Liquid Aerospike-Based Combined Cycle (LLABCC), and
    • Linear Hybrid Aerospike-Based Combined Cycle (LHABCC),
  • Hypersonic Engine and
  • Active Hypersonic Engine,

    which don't only solve all technological challenges that exist, but even exceed the tough requirements by far.
    Our HCV-1/WhiteSwift is constructed to fulfill the dreams, and to set new benchmarks in aviation and beyond.

    All of our powertrains can be powered with our range of environ- mental propellants and propellant transformation technologies.

    But to stop here is not enough, as it is known as one of the many signatures by Style of Speed. An additional mind-blowing push is given to the hypersonic jet by the Active (Plasma) Anti-Friction™ (AAF) generator, which creates plasmoids by the application of las- ers and high-frequency radiation. In this way the AAF system drast- ically reduces the air resistance of the body surface and the inlet and outlet/nozzle of the scramjet engine, which as an incredible result has the true potential to double the WhiteSwift's speed.

    More Power - More Speed - More Fun
    Furthermore, we can also integrate more features to fly very much faster than Mach 40.
    The WhiteSwift was developed for jet setters who want to have their coffee in cafés all over the world, and not in an aircraft 10,000 meters above the sea or on a ship on the sea. Very Important Pers- ons (VIPs) are welcomed as well, for sure.
