Abstract : At the request of the Royal Netherlands Air Force, a study into the international developments on missile ramjet propulsion has been carried out. It is the objective of this work to provide an outline of ramjet propulsion for missiles with a view on technical and operational aspects as well as the ongoing international developments. The essential areas for employment of missile systems, which are presently insufficiently perceived for ramjet missile systems, have been identified in accordance with the Royal Netherlands Air Force. Future work on these areas will be defined in consensus with the Royal Netherlands Air Force.
