Airbreathing engines combined with chemical rockets will be superior as a single stage to orbit propulsion device. A variable cycle engine incorporating interstage reheat and variable bypass ratio supersonic fan, is proposed here for this application. Operating in two modes Viz., turbojet and fan turbo ramjest configurations, this airbreathing engine is optimized for high specific impulse. Performance characteristics of this aerospace engine have been evaluated through a computer programme analysis
