Ramjet Propulsion for Single-Stage-to-Orbit Vehicles 771011

Several ramjet propulsion systems are evaluated for future Earth-to-orbit transportation designed for reduced operational cost, reduced loads on payloads, and increased flexibility of launch site and schedule. Fan ramjet engines are found to deliver reasonable payloads to orbit. Supersonic combustion ramjet engines are found to be desirable if engine mass can be minimized.
