NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility supported the launch of 2 suborbital sounding rockets on Nov. 15, 2023, for Navy Strategic Systems Programs (SSP), and the Missile Defense Agency (MDA), in coordination with Naval Surface Warfare Center, Crane Division (NSWC Crane) and the Office of the Secretary of Defense’s Test Resource Management Center (TRMC) Multi-Service Advanced Capability Hypersonic Test Bed (MACH TB).
This subscale test was performed by Sandia National Laboratories. Information gathered from this test will be utilized to notify the advancement of the Navy’s Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS), MDA’s hypersonic protective ability, and to grow other hypersonic innovations.
