AERODAYS 2015 took place on 20-23 October 2015 at the QEII Centre in London, UK. HIKARI was present at this event by hosting a dedicated booth where project related posters were displayed, leaflets were available for distribution and a HIKARI related video was showcased.


Travelling at the Speed of Light (HIKARI project)

Lunch in Tokyo…breakfast in Paris…same day…in that order!
This video aims at visualizing the HIKARI’s project objectives and goals.
It is designed for the purposes of the European Research project HIKARI (http://www.hikari-project.eu) and explores a promising new reality. The goal of the HIKARI project is to bring the aviation industry one giant leap closer to high-speed air transport. For the first time, Europe and Japan are linking hands with the aim of bringing together existing research on high-speed transport and providing the best overview of the way forward.

A New Dream for Humanity – Hypersonic Transport Aircraft –
JAXA | 宇宙航空研究開発機構

The video introduces JAXA’s attempt to achieve hypersonic transport aircraft of Mach 5 class, which will fly across the Pacific Ocean in two hours, by studying a conceptual design of the aircraft system and conducting flight environment verification of the hypersonic engine, the key technology, from takeoff to reaching a speed of Mach 5.


Hypersonic Airlines

“The objective of a high-speed plane is reducing journey times, aiming to travel, for example, between Europe and Japan in around three hours.”
This video is the TV documentary that was produced by the Euronews Channel in coordination with the HIKARI consortium in the frame of describing the research performed within the HIKARI project to the general public and thus preparing societal acceptance for such disruptive transport. This TV clip was on March 2nd 2015 within the FUTURIS programme. FUTURIS is a Euronews monthly show that brings European’s leading scientific and technological research projects advancements to the public. Euronews is the most-watched news channel in Europe and is a full multimedia platform for viewers on the move.. For viewing the TV Clip and the respective article please also follow this link.
