IIT KANPUR DEVELOPS INDIA'S FIRST HYPERVELOCITY EXPANSION TUNNEL TEST FACILITY




The Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IITK) has reached a significant milestone with the successful establishment and testing of India's premier hypervelocity expansion tunnel test facility. This achievement positions India among a select group of nations possessing such advanced hypersonic testing capabilities. According to IITK, the facility can generate flight velocities ranging from 3 to 10 km/s, replicating the hypersonic conditions experienced during atmospheric entry.

As a result, it serves as a crucial test bed for ongoing missions led by the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) and the Defence Research and Development Organisation (DRDO), including Gaganyaan, RLV (Reusable Launch Vehicle), and hypersonic cruise missiles.
