Dynic Labs, Inc. is proud to be a part of NASA’s Hyper-X Program.  Our fuel and oxidizer valve controller electronics are based on our schematic modules and provide valve position control to 0.1 percent of the command in 30 ms. The scramjet incorporates our 25 Amp brushless dc motor driver and includes internal power conditioning and supplies as well as the motor field director modem.  Dynic Labs performed the stabilization of the position loop.

The Hyper-X is a NASA led multi-year research project. The Hyper-X program has demonstrated “air-breathing” engine technologies. The scramjet uses a propulsion system that uses oxygen from the atmosphere rather than from large heavy oxygen tanks.

 A NASA spokesperson stated, “We achieved positive acceleration of the vehicle while we were climbing, and maintained outstanding vehicle control. This was a world-record speed for air-breathing flight.”  On November 16th 2004 the Hyper-X set the new world speed record for a jet-powered aircraft at Mach 9.6 or nearly 7,000 mph.

Dynic Labs, Inc. is pleased to be a part of such a historic event. Hypersonic engines similar to the Hyper-X will someday permit reusable vehicles for access to space; rapid global flight for commerce; and high-speed deployment of munitions to defend our country.
