The Scientifically Calibrated In-Flight Imagery (SCIFLI)  team at NASA Langley Research Center helps researchers gain insight into some of the most challenging regimes in fluid dynamics.

With each successful mission the SCIFLI (formerly HYTHIRM, or Hypersonic Thermodynamic Infrared Measurements) team builds on an invaluable collection of in flight-data that will help correlate and extend the utility of wind-tunnel tests and computational aerothermal analysis in the hypersonic regime.

Evolving transportation technology is increasing the need for truly understanding the behavior of vehicles under extreme conditions. The SCIFLI team is now helping investigators meet that need.
