Abstract : The design requirements of airbreathing propulsion for space transport application strongly depend on the particular mission demands and differ markedly from those of conventional airbreathing propulsion systems. Especially the low thrust densities and high thermal loads at high Mach numbers demand a systematic approach to design and selection of possible propulsion concepts. This paper intends to discuss main problems of propulsion system concepts and of their development/realization as well as to present attempts for possible solutions.
