Expertise in Aerothermal Materials Testing and Signature Phenomenology
Physical Sciences Inc. has >30 years of experience conducting research into materials effects and related phenomenology associated with rockets, missiles and other vehicles traveling at hyperthermal velocities at altitudes relevant to hypersonic flight (nominally 15 – 50 km) and Low Earth Orbit (LEO: 100 – 600 km). Products of that research include PSI’s:
1) FAST technology which serves as the gold standard for atomic oxygen testing for the LEO environment and
2) Microwave torch technology, MIDJetTM, a high enthalpy torch technology used in PSI’s hypersonic materials testbed.
1) system sales of complete testbeds based upon both technologies for materials testing and other research applications and
2) materials testing services described further on web pages linked below.
