QSST integrates state-of-the-art technologies to revolutionize business, commercial and passenger air transport. Lockheed Martin’s ’Skunk Works®’ designed QSST.
QSST is the only jet that incorporates patented breakthrough aerodynamic innovations to make it possible to fly supersonic over populated continental areas. QSST’s design is feasible and should receive timely certification approval from U.S. and international aviation authorities.
Lockheed Martin comprises the best aircraft design team in the world, with 50+ years of experience in aircraft design and production, specifically supersonic aircraft. SAI’s design is grounded in Lockheed Martin’s unquestioned abilities in systems engineering and institutional aviation design. QSST draws on the legendary history and unequaled record of accomplishment of Lockheed Martin’s ’Skunk Works’, Jetstar, one of the first business jets developed, was designed by ’Skunk Works’ and is still in use today. ’Skunk Works’ has also designed such legendary aircraft as the SR-71 “Blackbird,” and breakthrough aircraft as the F-117 Stealth Fighter, the F/A-22 Raptor and the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter.
General Electric, Pratt & Whitney and Rolls-Royce, the three leading international engine manufacturers, have proposed competing “state-of-the-art” engine design concepts that meet QSST performance, sound and emissions requirements. The engine design concepts will allow QSST to cruise at supersonic speeds without afterburning engines. All three engine companies promise high reliability and long core life even with the demands of sustained supersonic air flight.
QSST promises dramatic reductions in travel time that will enable businesses, entrepreneurs, medical personnel and government/military leadership a quantum leap in productivity that will allow leaders to position personnel and equipment rapidly around the world in order to respond to global opportunities and time-sensitive situations.
QSST is able to:
-Be the first to market a truly global supersonic aircraft
-Exploit and create global markets
-Uniquely be capable of quiet supersonic flight over land
-Revolutionize air travel by cutting travel time in half
-Produce range and performance statistics compatible with market demands
-Meet all current and forecast regulatory requirements
-Operate safely and reliably
