Each phase of the supersonic-compressor program conducted at the NACA Lewis Laboratory is reviewed with a discussion of the objectives and results of the various experiments and associated analyses. Particular emphasis is placed on the state of development at the time the work was done, the advancement resulting due to this program, and the association of the several phases of the research program. The assembling of all the reference material of this program serves as a background for further work in the area of supersonic compressors or related fields. Included in this paper are a few comments on the results of the supersonic-compressor research program and a mention of possible future applications.
