Abstract : Europe possesses a large range of hypersonic facilities which, when renovation and modifications currently underway are completed, will constitute a sound basis for Mach-Reynolds simulation. New facilities are needed over the long term to allow refined design studies and to simulate at least some aspects of real gas effects. Non-intrusive instrumentation to aid in code validation and the enhancement of training programs are equally essential elements in a balanced program of hypersonic research and development.
