Sandia National Lab Team Builds Drones to Test Hypersonic Tech

Sandia National Laboratories is developing autonomy and artificial intelligence for flight systems soaring at more than 3,800 mph. The technologies to get there will initially be tested on drones that move at about 5 mph.

“We want to ensure success before we test technologies on hypersonic flights,” says Sandia manager Jay Brown.

A team of college interns at Sandia National Laboratories contributed to the hypersonic goal this summer by completing the first two drones the labs will use to try out new algorithms for autonomous navigation, guidance and control, and target...
