The FastForward Project is a diverse, ad-hoc industry study group focused on common issues related to future global, high-speed point-to-point transportation (including passenger travel and fast package delivery). The all-volunteer group is broadly supported across the aerospace industry, with key members from flight system providers (both entrepreneurial and traditional aerospace hardware companies), future operators, government agencies, commercial aerospaceports, academic organizations, and specialist consultants. Members have backgrounds ranging from traditional aviation to space applications.
The FastForward Study Project is focused on examining pre-competitive issues and questions key to understanding the technical and economic viability of future high-speed global transportation services based on either atmospheric or exo-atmospheric flight. These two emerging markets are related, and both share the goal of drastically reducing point-to-point travel times between distance points on the globe to a matter of hours.
