Case Study

Hypersonic Test and Evaluation

The Navy’s Strategic Systems Programs (SSP) Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) Program Office is charged with rapidly prototyping and fielding a hypersonic weapon – a top Defense Department priority – capable of precise, timely, long-range strike against deep-inland, time-critical, soft- and medium-hardened targets in contested environments. The Navy is the lead designer for the common hypersonic missile that will be fielded by both the Navy and the Army, and the weapon system will be deployed on multiple platforms, from ZUMWALT Class destroyers and VIRGINIA Class fast-attack submarines to Army Field Batteries. Robust test and evaluation is integral to ensuring that the missile system achieves all performance requirements and specifications.

CPS relies upon VTG’s engineers and analysts to mature the test program and perform critical test and evaluation functions to meet these objectives. Our engineers serve as Flight Test Managers for live launch events, leading detailed test planning and performing progress reviews through test execution and post-event analyses and reporting. This requires coordinating government, industry, and national laboratory resources, and applying testing experience, critical thinking, and problem-solving to quickly adapt to dynamic changes. VTG’s efforts support the successful collection of test data and key model validation, keeping system development on schedule.
