This collaboration is taking place as part of the High Speed Research
Project, a joint NASA/industry project to put the technology in place
so that the US Aeropropulsion industry can play a major part in the
development of a future High Speed Civil Transport.

The Tupolev connection is a series of propulsion experiments being
performed on a TU-144 aircraft.  There is more info on the HSR
Propulsion Project Office webpage:
