AWS re:Invent 2020 – Blake Scholl of Boom on Using AWS to Enable Commercial Supersonic Flight
Boom Supersonic is using Amazon Web Services (AWS) to build the world’s fastest and most sustainable aircraft. In this video, Blake Scholl, Boom founder and CEO, describes how doing high performance computing (HPC) on AWS has saved the company millions of dollars and supported rapid design iteration. Boom is the first commercial airplane manufacturer to commit to a carbon-neutral flight test program and to build sustainability into its entire aircraft program. The company uses Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) to build and manage HPC clusters that run hundreds of concurrent simulations, reducing design time while helping ensure that Boom produces a safe, efficient, and sustainable supersonic airplane.
