MARYLAND (CyHAN)- As the latest in a continuing progression of NASA supersonics research projects aimed at reducing or mitigating the effect of sonic booms, the Farfield Investigation of No Boom Threshold, or FaINT, flight research project will help engineers better understand evanescent waves, an acoustic phenomenon that occurs at the very edges or just outside of the cone or envelope where sonic booms are heard.
