Abstract The Center of Excellence in Hypersonics Research was established to support future hypersonic vehicle development programs. The Center engaged leading experts in experimental and computational analysis of hypersonic flows to provide research, education, and technology development in hypersonics. The Center combined the world's premiere hypervelocity testing facility at the CUBRC with state-of-the-art computational simulation methods at the University of Minnesota to rapidly advance the field of hypersonics. The Center supported fundamental research in hypersonics, including the development of high-quality experimental databases for code testing and validation of prediction tools. Many of these codes have been transferred to government and industry to enable optimized hypersonic vehicle designs. The Center also supported a rigorous graduate program that transferred technical capabilities from the previous generation of hypersonics experts to new students in the field. This helped preserve the nation's dwindling talent pool and provided a source of scientists and engineers for future research and development programs.
