"The Air Force was engaged in the development of the Hypersonic Technology Integration Demonstrator (HYTID), formerly known as NHFRF, to accelerate the development and demonstration of technology for future military systems designed to operate within the atmosphere at speeds between Mach 4 and 8.

The primary objective of HYTID was to conduct experimental research in the hypersonic test environment -available within its flight capability envelope. Sufficient design flexibility was built into HYTID so that it could accommodate the aerodynamic drag, thermal interference heating, and flight control perturbations brought about by the installation and operation of all candidate experiments.
Those experiments that have a major vehiole design impact are associated with the airbreathing propulsion tests. As the specific impulse of airbreathing propulsion systems is an order of magnitude higher than rockets, their ultimate use in hypersonic vehicles is an attractive goal. To provide the test-bed capability to assure the development of these high-performance propulsion systems, HYTID was configured to the requirements of these systems. The most promising of these concepts today are the scramjets. However, they cause a major configuration impact, as the forebody of the fuselage must be configured to provide the inlet precompression properties required, while the afterbody must conform to the engine exhaust expansion requirements."

Reminds me of those NASA studies for a delta winged X-15-3. Check it out:

My dear Flateric,


I found that report about the former hypersonic aircraft (NHFRF),but the company involved in it
with NASA and USAF was Vought !.
