The Hadley liquid rocket engine was developed by Ursa Major and will be used on the X-60A. The X-60A will provide flight research allowing affordable, routine and flexible access to hypersonic flight conditions.

Hypersonics is the next great frontier of atmospheric flight, and Generation Orbit’s experienced team of engineers and developers is helping the U.S. close the technology gap in this critical flight regime.

The X-60A’s propulsion system is a Hadley liquid rocket engine, made by Ursa Major Technologies, which uses liquid oxygen and kerosene propellants.

The X-60A is an air-dropped liquid rocket specifically designed for hypersonic flight research. It is the first Air Force Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) program to receive an experimental "X" designation.
