Abstract : Since 1972 the Supersonic Cruise Research (SCR) Program has provided an accelerated and focused technology effort which has resulted in development of improved analytical techniques, design procedures, and an expanded experimental data base. Progress made in the first 4 years was highlighted in a conference at Langley Research Center in 1976 (see NASA CP-0O1, Parts 1 and 2) Subsequent to the 1976 conference, NASA had conducted and monitored additional supersonic cruise vehicle studies and enhanced the advanced supersonic technology data base through further tests. Significant achievements in the interim since the previous conference were reported to the technical community at the SCR 79 Conference held at Langley Research Center, November 13-16, 1979. This document is a compilation of papers, authored by representatives of airframe and engine manufacturers, the Federal Aviation Administration, three NASA research centers, and the Office of Technology Assessment (Congress of the United States) which were presented at the latter Conference.
