General Atomics Assists in CHGB Testing

US Continues to Emphasise Hypersonics Priority

General Atomics Electromagnetic Systems (GA-EMS) recently participated in joint flight test Flight Experiment 2 (FE-2) of the Common Hypersonic Glide Body (CHGB) in support of the US Army’s Long Range Hypersonic Weapon (LRHW) and the Navy’s Conventional Prompt Strike (CPS) programmes, the company announced on 20 March.

This event was one in a series of tests slated to be conducted by the joint services. GA-EMS provided flight hardware and cables, flight software inputs and testing, test event training, data network infrastructure and data management.

This is a national priority program and test events like FE-2 are important in demonstrating and validating hypersonic flight capabilities,” commented GA-EMS President, Scott Forney. “We are proud to leverage our expertise in manufacturing highly complex systems, design analysis, and flight test planning and execution to demonstrate this critical technology successfully in an operational setting. We look forward to further advancing these capabilities for the nation to effectively address emerging threats on the battlefield.”

Since 2006, GA-EMS has been working with industry, government and the Departments of Defense and Energy to develop and test hypersonic weapons. Currently, the company is providing manufacturing, production, engineering and technical support to integrate, test, and evaluate CHGB and flight test vehicles through system and subsystem-level ground and flight test activities.
