Boom Supersonic and Rolls-Royce to Collaborate

Boom Supersonic, an aerospace company building the world’s fastest civil aircraft, and Rolls-Royce recently announced an engagement agreement to explore the pairing of a Rolls-Royce propulsion system with Boom’s flagship supersonic passenger aircraft, Overture.
 
The goal of the new agreement is to work together to identify the propulsion system that would complement Boom’s Overture airframe. The engagement will involve teams from Boom and Rolls-Royce collaborating in engine-airframe matching activities for Overture. The teams will also examine certain key aspects of the propulsion system.

They will also investigate whether an existing engine architecture can be adapted for supersonic flight, while Boom’s internal team continues to develop the airframe configuration.
 
Overcoming the technological challenges of supersonic flight provides a unique opportunity to accelerate innovation sustainably. As a result of this collaboration, Boom and Rolls-Royce expect to make significant progress towards finalising Overture’s aircraft configuration and propulsion system.
