SuperSIDE (Supersonic SIDE) is an extension of HySIDE, and will be used for creating supersonic aircraft and missiles. It is currently in the process of being built, and will be an excellent tool for system building. User will be provided basic components which can be put together to form larger systems. User will also have similar ability to create new components from scratch and mix them with existing components and systems.
