X-51 Technology Demonstrator Patch


Description:
***** “I strive to deliver 5-star customer service”***** X-51 Technology Demonstrator Patch The X-51 is a technology demonstrator to develop a functional supersonic-combustion ramjet (scramjet) engine. It will explore flight at speeds up to Mach 6.7. Four X-51A flights are planned over the Pacific Ocean, beginning in August 2009. Professionally embroidered 4" patch designed by Aviation Historian Peter Merlin and Graphic Artist Tony Moore. Limited edition, while supplies last. On the patch, the border colors, Air Force blue and gold, represent the sponsoring agency - the Air Force Research Laboratory. The vehicle is depicted climbing toward the heavens following scramjet ignition. The other elements of the system, rocket booster and B-52 launch aircraft, are shown in the background. The details on the ground depict Edwards Air Force Base. The number 6+ indicates the desired Mach number range for the vehicle. The curvature of the horizon and the black sky denote altitude. The number X-51 in white against the black is rendered in the same font as the logo on the black skin of the X-15, one of the earliest hyper-sonic research programs and a vehicle that was also air launched from a B-52 at Edwards. The designation X-51 was chosen for the project because inverting the "15" to become "51" emphasizes a continuing heritage of hyper-sonic flight research.
