it's nice to see that the the decades of prior research is paying-off, allowing the US to quickly refocus and regain its technological mojo in this critical aeronautical format.
I admit to having a fascination for these (formerly) esoteric fast movers, going back to my military controller days. So I'm all-in on the excitement about this.
And, while this research is nearly 100% driven by military concerns it also has significant commercial application as well.
Thanks to William Baker for posting.

this is huge. This is the type of groudbreaking work that was happening almost daily in the 1950's - 60's, when we had gone from props to mach 1 in a scant few years. Now, lets figure out how to capitalize on this and grow. [similar to the tech trickle-down in the automotive world. What to do with tech from a halo-car V8 engine that makes 700 horse from 4.8 litres? make a 2.0 litre four that makes 330 horses reliably and consistently and reasonably economiaclly] 13,000lb thrust hypersonic jet engine? The possibilities are just waiting for the research engineer (who is right now in 7th grade, but now has a spark of wonder).

Oh goody, downvoted on quoting how technology has advanced, considering same engine design only achieved 650 hp 4 years before is staggering to me.

I, too, was down-voted once, when apparently, my comments strayed too far from the main topic.
In any case I wouldn't take it personally.

In the 1950s we went from propellers to Mach 3+ in the SR-71

Ford today announced a 5.2L engine producing 760hp. It uses more oil than my diesel engine.

So this an engine for missiles only? What are any significant Commercial usages ?

Hard to say at this stage. Technology is always hard to predict. If anyone in the world ever decide to make another supersonic transport, this has real potential. Probably not in my lifetime, but I'm old.
