The Boom XB-1 Baby Boom is a supersonic technology demonstrator aircraft that is under the development of Boom Technology. As a technology demonstrator, the XB-1 is a one-third-scale prototype of the Boom Overture supersonic transport airliner that is also currently under development. For the XB-1, Boom Technology claims that the aircraft will be capable of sustaining Mach 2.2 speeds for a travel range of 1,000 nautical miles. To achieve this, the XB-1 is to utilize three 4,300 pound-force General Electric CJ610s for its engine configuration. Currently, the XB-1 Baby Boom is slated to have its first flight in 2020.
For its design, the Boom XB-1 Baby Boom is to be 21 meters long and have a 5.2 meters wide wingspan. With its size and engine configuration, the XB-1 will have a maximum takeoff weight of 13,500 pounds. The low weight of the XB-1 is achieved by its construction, featuring lightweight composites across the body. For operation, the aircraft would be piloted by two crew members, and the environmental control system would utilize fuel to dump cabin heat and provide thermal control.
