历史性的X-1E展望未来

The supersonic X-1E research aircraft was the last of NASA’s experimental X-1 series of aircraft. From 1955-1958, it made 26 flights and one captive flight (attached to a carrier aircraft). Research flights took place over what is now NASA’s Armstrong Flight Research Center in Edwards, California. In this photo from November 2021, the X-1E looks toward...

窥探X-59的测试室

左图:位于德克萨斯州圣安东尼奥的KBR设施的低压舱,通过降低舱内的气压来模拟非常高的海拔高度。舱内的实验对象经历了在更高海拔处存在的减压条件,在这种情况下,海拔高达60,000英尺。 右图:一名军事测试志愿者在接受快速减压前,穿着防护装备呼吸氧气。测试的目的是验证他使用和佩戴的设备以及生命支持系统都能正常工作。 影像来源:NASA 对于NASA的静音超音速飞行团队来说,安全是最重要的,他们正在为X-59静音超音速技术(QueSST)飞机未来的飞行测试做准备,并取得了长足的进步。为了给我们的飞行员实现最安全的环境和飞机,NASA正在与承包商KBR合作,并依靠他们的专业知识来确保飞机符合生命支持和紧急氧气系统达到所需的标准。 NASA的X-59是一架研究型飞机,旨在通过其安静的超音速技术和设计特点来消除音爆的轰鸣声...

NASA X-59发动机进气口的视图

NASA’s X-59 requires the use of creative and strategic supersonic technologies to control and soften the jarring sound that hits the ground as the aircraft flies faster than the speed of sound. One of these creative technologies is the placement of the X-59 engine inlet. This visual is a closeup looking downstream inside of the X-59’s engine inlet where, lat...

组装X-59 QueSST机翼

The X-59 Quiet SuperSonic Technology, or QueSST, wing assembly is lifted by a crane and moved to another area of the manufacturing floor in preparation for wing skin installation. The aircraft is under construction at Lockheed Martin in Palmdale, California, and will fly for the first time in 2021. Currently, commercial planes aren’t allowed to fly fas...

NASA的X-59静音超音速研究飞机已获准进行最终组装

X-59 QueSST降落在跑道上的示意图 来源:Lockheed Martin NASA30多年来的首架大型有人驾驶的X-plane,经过高级管理人员周四在华盛顿NASA总部举行的重大项目审查后,已获准进行系统的最后组装和整合。 被称为关键决策点D(KDP-D)的管理评审是X-59静音超音速技术(QueSST)飞机在2020年底官方再次开会批准2021年的首飞之前的最后一个程序障碍。 “随着KDP-D项目的完成,我们已经证明该项目如期进行,计划周密,步入正轨。我们已经准备就绪,为国家的航空旅行大众继续这项历史性的研究任务。”美国宇航局航空航天局副局长鲍勃·皮尔斯(Bob Pearce)说。 X-59的形状可以将到达地面的音爆声的响度降低到轻柔的重击声(如果能听到的话)。 它将飞越美国部分社区,以从地面上的传感...

美国宇航局的X-59奎斯特飞机在洛克希德马丁臭鼬工厂成型

In the high desert of California, some of the most important aircraft in aviation history have been built and flown. NASA’s X-59 QueSST (short for Quiet SuperSonic Technology) is an experimental piloted aircraft designed to fly faster than sound without producing the annoying – if not alarming – sonic booms of previous supersonic aircraft. It is the latest c...
