Who are the leading global researchers in hypersonics technology?

In two separate technical inquiries, DSIAC was asked first to identify the top hypersonics researchers and organizations in the United States and then globally. DSIAC staff searched our internal resources and available literature databases to provide information on publications, number of citations, patents awarded, and pending patents held in the overarching area of hypersonics technology and research development. Consolidated lists of top U.S. and global researchers and research institutions were provided, as well as a table with detailed patent information from top affiliations and researchers.
