Hypersonics Supply Chains
WATCH: ETI's Hypersonic Launch Event held on May 11, 2023
COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine have exposed the fact that the United States faces substantial supply chain vulnerabilities and weaknesses. Nearly every sector has been affected, including defense emerging technologies.
ETI launched an in-depth research study focused on technology supply chains with the goal of assessing their current state and providing actionable policy recommendations for their development, health, and resilience. The first focus technology is hypersonic systems. Hypersonic systems, specifically maneuvering missiles flying at least five times the speed of sound, or Mach 5, within the Earth’s atmosphere, can deliver long-range lethal effects on short time scales, and are a central component of the Department of Defense’s modernization efforts.
