Abstract : This document includes the summary and three major sections of the propulsion report describing the engines, supersonic inlet, and the propulsion control systems. Studies conducted during Phase II C have resulted in significant improvements to the Boeing Model 2707 propulsion system. Optimum sized engines with improved thrust and fuel consumption characteristics are available from General Electric and Pratt and Whitney Aircraft. The four separate and interchangeable propulsion pods are mounted below the lower surface of the horizontal stabilizer at such a position that the engine exhaust will not impinge on any part of the airplane. The pod location and shape provides optimum lift effect on the airplane.
