This paper presents experimental activities focused on supersonic flow control with plasma and MHD actuators. This work is carried out at ICARE, a laboratory located at the CNRS Campus in Orléans. The study of aerothermodynamic physics, one of the research fields of ICARE, is conducted with the experimental platform FAST consisting of three supersonic/hypersonic wind tunnels involved in aerothermodynamic testing for hypersonic flight and space technology.
