Tu-144LL Supersonic Flying Laboratory. At the end of the Cold War United States and Russia have collaborated in a joint aeronautical flight research program. In 1993 a United States-Russian Joint Commission on Economic and Technological Cooperation was chaired by then U.S. Vice President Gore and Russian Prime Minister Chernomyrdin, in technical interchange between the two countries. NASA and U.S. commercial aviation industries were heavily engaged in a High-Speed Research (HSR) program to further develop Supersonic Transport (SST) aircraft technologies. The goal of the HSR program was to posture the U.S. in a lead position toward the development of a second-generation SST aircraft. Russia's Tupolev Aircraft Design Bureau had proposed as early as 1990 that a Tu-144 SST could be used as a flying test-bed in support of the HSR program. Given encouragement from the Joint Commission, a team of senior NASA and U.S. industry aviation specialists developed a prioritized group of flight experiments and worked with a corresponding senior team from the Tupolev Design Bureau to understand modifications that would have to be made to the Tu-144 to conduct those experiments. These activities were the genesis of the Tu-144LL Supersonic Flying Laboratory used in the joint research program.
