An Australian aerospace engineering start-up is partnering with the University of Sydney to build a zero emissions hypersonic spaceplane capable of deploying small satellites into low earth orbit.
Brisbane-based Hypersonix Launch Systems, which is aiming to provide sustainable and affordable access to space, will collaborate with University of Sydney’s Sydney Manufacturing Hub (SMH) to research and manufacture components to aid the company’s hypersonic vehicles and scramjets engine technologies.
SMH, led by the Professor of Materials Science and Engineering Simon Ringer, supports advanced capabilities in making and processing metals, ceramics and polymeric-based materials including 3D printing.
