Design of Low Sonic Boom Aircraft

Supersonic Transport (SST) so far is limited to flight over oceans because of Sonic Boom noise:

The Concorde was the first technically successful, but environmentally problematic SST

A challenge for refined shape definition is the application of Sonic Boom Theory to

find aircraft shapes in supersonic flight with a reduced sonic boom signature.
