Advanced Composites Group Ltd. (ACG), part of Umeco Composites Structural Materials (UCSM) on a Division of Umeco plc, provide The BLOODHOUND Project.BLOODHOUND Project is an international education initiative focussed around a 1000mph land speed record attempt……

Bloodhound project has reemerged from the ether of the internet, this time with a full-scale model of the team’s actual world land speed-record hopeful.Bloodhound Education Program is a ploy to get school-aged kids into the sciences by showing them exactly what Algebra can do.Construction of the Bloodhound SSC is underway, with a planned top speed of over 1,000mph courtesy of a jet engine borrowed from a Typhoon jet fighter sitting in the back and a trio of Intel Atom processors in the cockpit that will run a number of onboard diagnostics and telemetry systems.They won’t be adding to the overall thrust of the thing but neither will they be putting much of a drain on the electrical system.The construction of the rear section of the machine is slated to begin in the second quarter of next year, and the team claims that it’s in talks with another organization to begin building the front half right now. That means we could be hearing reports of shakedown runs by the end of 2011 or the beginning of 2012.
