Edwards AFB Hosts Hypersonic Weapon Familiarization Training
“Edguardo Santiago-Maldonado, Senior Strategist with AFRL’s High Speed Systems Division, instructs operational crews from B-1, B-2, B-52, and F-15E units across Air Force Global Strike Command and Air Combat Command as they participate in hypersonic weapon familiarization training at Edwards Air Force Base, California, Sept. 28. The participating crews received expert academics and training on hypersonic fundamentals and participated in tactical discussion on hypersonic operations to increase operational readiness and prepare multiple Air Force aircraft communities for hypersonics including the Hypersonic Attack Cruise Missile, Air-launched Rapid Response Weapon, and other programs under development. The Department of Defense is developing hypersonic science and technology to ensure the U.S. can rapidly field operational hypersonic systems.
