 Abstract
Performance requirement analysis and weight estimation of a reusable launch vehicle with a rocket-based air-breathing engine(RBCC : Rocket Based Combined Cycle) were performed. Performance model for an RBCC engine was developed and integrated with flight trajectory model. The integrated engine-trajectory model was validated by comparing the results with those from previous research reference. Based on the new engine-trajectory model and previous research results, engine performance requirements were derived for an reusable launching vehicle with gross take-off weight of 15 tones. Dependence of the propellant amount requirement on the mode transition Mach number of the engine was also analyzed.
