According to Flightglobal, specialists of U.S. Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL) reported, that unlock and steering response were the main reasons for unsuccessful tests of U.S. hypersonic missile X-51A Waverider, which was held in August 2012. According to Charlie Brink, a project manager in AFRL, due to this resonance after 15 seconds of X-51A flight, was unlocked upper right hand drive, which is required for stabilization and control of a hypersonic missile, which made it impossible to carry out further flight of the missile. X-51A missile was launched from aboard of B-52 Stratofortress at a height of 15,250 meters, and it was assumed, that it must be retained for five minutes with rate in six times higher of the speed of sound at an altitude of 21,300 meters, but after 16 seconds of flight, X-51A Waverider lost control and fell into the Pacific ocean. According to Charlie Brink, faults will be eliminated in the new design of X-51A Waverider, scheduled for launch in the first half of 2013, VIDEO:
