The "Hyper Sting", supersonic concept pane

'Supersonic airplane world can't wait'
Until today, to talk about supersonic commercial flights is to talk about the Concorde, the unique supersonic civil airplane that transported during a few 
decades, passengers between international airports all around the World; due to issues with investments, airplane design, performance and others facts, 
some other projects only reached "the gates" of the possibility to become a reality.
Concorde was a brilliant piece of machinery, a noble experiment, but it put too much emissions in the environment, too much noise into our communities, 
and was too expensive to operate.
A new era of supersonic flight might be just around the corner, but there are challenges to overcome when it comes to flying faster than the speed
of sound, the "Hyper Sting" (alias -the Peregrine Falcon-) is a new concept about of future supersonic commercial airplanes. Today, there are some 
projects for a new era of supersonic flights from different private & public initiatives, some of those are well underway and could become in few 
years in a real concept.
The "Hyper Sting" concept has the objective  to become, in some ways, different to other future concepts, due to incorporation of innovative solutions, 
like, a new fuselage geometry (central body) with active variable geometry wings, a new concept system to reduce the sonic boom, a new system to 
create energy for the airplane, a new concept of engines, a new aerodynamic devices, capable to generate for itself energy and also a new guidance 

Capacity: 130–170 passengers 
Length: 328 ft 4 in (100.03 m) 
Wingspan: 168.63 ft 0 in (51.40 m) 
Maximum speed: 2,664 mph (4,287 km/h, 2,315 kn) 
Maximum speed: Mach 3.5 (temperature limited) 
Cruise speed: 2,486 mph (4,000 km/h, 2,160 kn) 
Service ceiling: 65,616 ft (20,000 m)
The "Hyper Sting" Supersonic Force One, could be the first supersonic presidential airplane.
How could the "Hyper Sting" be?
-The fuselage would have the shape of a "big sting" with a very sharp "nose", that would have the function to control the front airflow (pressure/speed), in 
order to redistribute it over the central part and over the wings with the objective to reduce the overlapping wavefronts, reducing the acute angle of 
the shock cone at supersonic speed, that creates shock waves united, to form a large sonic wave that become into an "N" shape, which creates the loud sound, 
noise generally be heard within a 30-mile radius.
The airplane would have an innovative trident shape (fuselage-wings) and thanks to a system based on multiple thrusters (16 units) located on the "nose" of 
the airplane and controlled by an AI system with hundreds of sensors all around the plane, could control and reduce the sonic boom effect.
-Powered by four hybrid turbojet (hydrogen/electric next gen of airplane engines) with "afterburners" (only used only to pass through the upper transonic regime 
to supersonic speeds up to Mach 1.5) and a ramjet system incorporated inside of each of those engines with a front diffusers that could compress the 
intake air, changing its angle of incidence, those could being to run at Mach 1.5, wouldn't be the optimal speed with the current ramjet engines, but thanks 
to use a new type of combustion chamber with plasma power and hydrogen fuel mixed with inlet air at supersonic speed, could produce a maintainable 
thrust up to Mach 3.5 (4,287 kph). 
The amounts of fuel that would use to propel the airplane would be low, due to the combustion at very high temperature (plasma) & high pressure.
Also, could have a "big" ramjet engine, located on the rear part of the fuselage that could generate a "rocket" thrust,, in order to assist the main 
airplane engines at supersonic speed.
-With a Cold Nuclear Fusion "core", based on Lattice Confinement Fusion process that could create great amounts of electric energy like a powerful 
battery; NASA has unlocked nuclear fusion on a tiny scale, with a phenomenon called lattice confinement fusion that takes place in the narrow channels 
between atoms. A device with this type of "Fusion reactor", would be located on the rear part of the airplane and could "feed" the engines and the 
ramjet's combustion chambers with electric energy (clean energy).
“Lattice confinement” may sound complex, but it's just a mechanism—by comparison, tokamaks like ITER and stellarators use “magnetic confinement.” The 
fusion that takes place in the narrow channels between atoms. In the reaction, the common nuclear fuel deuterium gets trapped in the “empty” atomic 
space in a solid metal. What results is a Goldilocks effect that’s neither supercooled nor superheated, but where atoms reach fusion-level energy.
"At the very least, it could be suited to applications where a magnetic fusion reactor isn’t feasible. Before then, scientists will need to find a way 
to increase the rate of atomic reactions manyfold, and they say they have several ideas for how to try to do that" (source: Popular Mechanics).                                                                                        
-Takeoff & landing at low speed, like current commercial airplanes; thanks to its Active Variable Geometry Wings that could change its geometry and get 
an optimal sustentation at low speed with "short" runway distances.The wings could have active flaps controlled by an AI and those could act like an
air brakes too.
-With Quantum technology, the "Hyper Sting" could be equipped with quantum dot solar cells (QDSC), located on the top of the fuselage and inside the 
windows. These cells could generate enough electric energy for passenger's devices and some airplane sub-systems.
-Capable to transport up to 170 passengers in a very comfortable accommodations at Mach 3.5 and cover long distances, New York to Sydney (in 4.20h) or 
Los Angeles to Paris (in 2.30h), all of these trips in one stage.
-With a special guidance system, based on next generation of fihgters; with LiDAR, holographic 3d image and satellite laser guidance, a special device 
located under the "nose" of the airplane, could assist the pilots on the maneuvers of takeoff & landing thanks to those technologies.
-Made on carbon fiber, special aluminum alloys, structures of graphene, titanium, meta-materials, ceramic composites and more...   
-With 3 special rear vertical stabilizers to obtain an optimal aerodynamic performance at high speeds.

-Of course, one of the most remarkable skills of the "Hyper Sting" would be its "eco friendly behaivor".
The Hyper Sting was tested with professional CFD (computational fluid dynamics) solutions, in order to accurate its design and obtain the best aerodynamic performance in all conditions.
