Generation Orbit Prepares For GO1 Wind Tunnel And Hot Fire Testing

Tests Will Be Conducted At AFRL's Rocket Lab At Edwards AFB

Generation Orbit Launch Services (GO) has announced the award of a SBIR Phase II Extension from the Air Force Research Laboratory, Aerospace Systems Directorate, High Speed Systems Division (AFRL/RQHV) to enable wind tunnel and integrated hot fire testing of the GO1 hypersonic testbed. These efforts will further the development of the vehicle by validating aerodynamic models and demonstrating the functionality of the fully integrated GO1 rocket vehicle system. Wind tunnel testing will be accomplished at the AFRL Trisonic Gas Dynamics Facility and Mach 6 Wind Tunnel Facility at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, OH. Integrated hot fire testing will be conducted at AFRL’s Rocket Lab test facilities at Edwards Air Force Base, CA.

“By the time these two test campaigns are complete, we’ll be well ahead of the curve in terms of our knowledge and understanding of how the vehicle hardware and software work” commented A.J. Piplica, Chief Operating Officer at GO. “The team is excited to apply what we’re learning here toward finalizing the detailed design of GO1 and pressing forward toward vehicle production and test flights in short order.”

Development of GO1 continues to progress on schedule to provide a unique flight test capability to the hypersonic and suborbital research communities. The system will enable long-duration, affordable access to high Mach number, endoatmospheric flight conditions necessary for maturing technologies, components, and subsystems relevant to high speed system architectures for both government and commercial applications.
