Example text

The expansion of airbreathing engine operation to the orbiter – to reduce overall oxidizer mass – yields to an increase in dry mass, complexity and risks primarily for the second stage but also for the first stage. As long as a scramjet engine suffers from a low thrust density it cannot compete with rocket engines especially for accelerator vehicles. 7 Conclusion and Outlook Different TSTO reusable space transports have been investigated which are featured by an airbreathing super-/hypersonic aircraft as first stage and by an orbital space plane as second stage.

17 3 Overall Design Aspects Growth Factor and Sensitivities These figures directly measure margins to the technical limit and indicate risks and requirements. Growth factors and sensitivities can be determined by variation of primary design parameters as weight, drag, thrust, fuel consumption, etc. [13]. Complexity Overall system complexity indicates development and acquisition costs and risks. Complexity can be as simple as the number of major subsystem types. Wetted Area Wetted area is a good indicator for structures and thermal protection system related expenses.

2 LOX-Collection Operation of an Air Collection and Enrichment System (ACES) provides – as primary effect – significant reduction in GTOM of the space transport due to empty LOX-tanks of the orbital stage. This may result in structural and empty mass savings particularly for the first stage. The required oxygen for the upper stage does not need to be accelerated at the beginning of the mission. It can be collected at comparatively high velocities. Another benefit is the possibility to confine the use of airbreathing propulsion to Mach numbers of 4 or even less with pure turbojets instead of combined cycle engines.
