Purdue to Expand Propulsion Research

WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. — Purdue University’s work in national security took another giant leap forward with university trustees’ approval of a state-of-the-art high-speed propulsion laboratory, putting the university’s hypersonic testing capabilities on scale with large industry partners. The High-Speed Propulsion Laboratory will be located in the Discovery Park District at Purdue. The new lab will provide testing capabilities at the extreme pressure and temperature conditions experienced in actual hypersonic flight, significantly enhancing Purdue’s research and development capabilities. The High-Speed Propulsion Laboratory, will be available to a very broad set of researchers interested in working with Purdue to test their equipment. According to Theresa Mayer, executive vice president for research and partnerships, “Purdue researchers have deep expertise in this area of critical importance to our nation. By harnessing Purdue’s expertise, capabilities and capacity for advancing hypersonics R&D, we can help to give the U.S. a competitive advantage against our near peer adversaries.”
