1 The SABRE engine and SKYLON space plane 4 June 2014

2 Current Access to Space (Expendable launch vehicles) What is wrong with todays launchers? - Cost (>$100M per flight) - Operations (> 3 month preparation) - Reliability (2-5% loss rate per flight) Outcome Only worldwide flights/year.

3 Characteristics for True Commercial Operations o Cheap, reliable, easy to operate (ie: like an aircraft) o However the above characteristics increase hardware mass & increase the mission velocity requirements. o Consequently such a vehicle cannot be built with state of the art LOX-LH 2 rocket engines. o A breakthrough in propulsion technology is required.

4 HOTOL the World s first reusable SSTO spaceplane design In the 1980 s the British Aerospace / Rolls Royce HOTOL project (SSTO) aimed to achieve cheap access to space. HOTOL was powered by a revolutionary new engine invented by Alan Bond The pre-cooled air-breathing/rocket engine.

5 Company Origins Noordwijk 1990 Bond Varvill Scott-Scott Reaction Engines Ltd was founded in 1989 by Alan Bond, Richard Varvill and John Scott-Scott. The Company goal is to revolutionise Access to Space

6 Company History Building on our HOTOL experience we evolved the vehicle design into SKYLON, and the RB545 engine design into SABRE. We eventually managed to raise sufficient private investment to rent offices in the Culham Innovation Centre and start practical experimentation (2001). We have been growing ever since..

7 SKYLON and SABRE

8 S K Y LO N Entry to Service Targets 15T payload to Equatorial LEO 200 reuses 1% abort rate per mission 1:20,000 loss rate per mission 48 hour turnaround

9 The SABRE Engine Cycle A helium power loop is interposed between the hot airflow and the cold hydrogen fuel flow this generates the power to drive the air compressor. In rocket mode LOX replaces the air fed to the combustion chamber.

10 The SABRE Engine Layout With the exception of the heat exchangers most of the engine components are relatively conventional gas turbine, ramjet and rocket technology.

11 REL addressed most of the key technologies in Phase 2
