HyperStar is a supersonic jet airliner project envisaged by HyperMach CEO Richard H. Lugg. Lugg said in a 2016 Altitudes Aviation interview, and a 2014 presents at the Global Aerospace Summit, Abu Dhabi, he plans to get the hypersonic transport airborne by June 2028. It would reach speeds of up to Mach number 6.6(3,431 mph (5,522 km/h)) and fly at an altitude of 80,000 feet (18,300 m). The propulsion is projected to be 30% more fuel efficient than the Rolls Royce/Snecma Olympus 593 Engine which flew the Concorde. The HyperStar would, hypothetically, fly at three times faster than the speed of the Concorde. It is planned to be powered by two (engineered) 157,700 thrust SonicBlue HYSCRAM (Hypersonic Superconducting Combustion Ram Accelerated Magnetohydrodynamic Drive ) hybrid hypersonic 6500-X series engines. Some sonic boom is planned to be avoided through electromagnetic drag reduction[vague] technology (currently under development), eliminating the infamous hallmark of the Concorde predecessor.
