Abstract
Exosonic is developing a quiet Mach 1.8, 4500 nmi range supersonic civil aircraft that uses aerodynamic shaping techniques to mute its sonic boom. Exosonic is teamed up with Stanford University Prof. Juan Alonso's Aerospace Design Lab to apply the lab's low boom shape optimization tools to design this aircraft to meet future low-boom regulatory standards. The aircraft's primary customers are commercial airlines to ferry their passengers around the world in half the time. However, it can also be repurposed for the USAF's needs, such as for time-sensitive troop or cargo transport. The commercial and venture capital world will front aircraft development costs to keep the DoD acquisition prices low.
