Air-Breathing Reusable Launchers 670390

Performance is examined of a re-usable space launcher system suitable for European development with an air-breathing first stage and rocket-propelled second stage. The merits of ram-rocket and turbo-ramjet propulsion are compared and the research programme required for such a system is discussed. It is concluded that a partly air-breathing re-usable launcher system is likely to emerge as a by-product of air transport development.
