Key features

Meet HyperTwin X

HyperTwin X is a digital twin platform for the hypersonic flight environment, allowing mission planners, engineers, and battle management system planners to simulate hypersonic concepts in the virtual world before flying in the real world. HyperTwin X performs complex multi-physics simulations and produces virtual aircraft signatures for evaluating concept performance, conducting virtual flight tests and training hypersonic detection algorithms.

Multi-physics simulation

Hypersonic super-compute capability for coupled fluid, thermal, structural and trajectory simulations.

Virtual experience

Hyper-realistic and interactive end-user visual experience for configuring, executing and analysing flight concepts.


Advanced computational modelling framework with machine learning, probabilistic modelling, and artificial intelligence.

Secure architecture

Flexible defence and commercial deployment architectures to suit individual client needs.

Why use H2 as fuel?

Hydrogen is fuel for a low carbon future

Hydrogen can be produced from just water, using renewable energy. Burning it in an engine produces only water vapour. There is a global movement towards low-carbon fuels and Australia is set to become a key player in the hydrogen industry, with government and private investment into local green hydrogen production facilities.
Hypersonix has partnered with BOC Australia, who has announced its intention to build a green hydrogen production facility using seawater as the main ingredient, in Queensland.

The clean hydrogen industry is growing quickly Australia-wide, with over $1.6 billion invested in the private sector and $1.27 billion in the public sector. The price of clean hydrogen is projected to decrease to between $2 and $4 per kilogram by 2030.

Hydrogen is an excellent aerospace fuel

The space industry has historically utilised hydrogen as rocket fuel, including in the space shuttle program.

Hydrogen is non-toxic and its low density means any leaks and fires are directed upwards — unlike hydrocarbon fuels, which could pool under the aircraft. Hypersonix’s vehicles are also unmanned, reducing the risks to humans. Hydrogen has approximately 2.5 times the energy density of hydrocarbon fuels, such as kerosene, making it the perfect fuel in an industry where every gram counts.
