The AZHRAE Rocket is an Advanced Zero speed to Hypersonic Regime Air breathing Engines (AZHRAE).


Please refer to the following AAB Library Data articles for further information:


Description (Specifications)[edit]

They include a wide variety of exotic engine types designed, unlike turbine engines and ramjets, to function at low speeds for takeoff and landing, where they function as turbojets, hypersonic speeds for high-altitude operations, where they function as ramjets, and in suborbital or orbital insertion profiles, where they close off their intakes and function as rockets, As a group these are referred to as "ducted rockets," and are the preferred engines for trans-atmospheric craft.

While operating in turbojet or ramjet mode, the engine uses jet engine fuel, usually a hydrocarbon distillate. While operating in rocket mode it requires a liquid hydrogen/oxygen fuel mixture. This requires a dual fuel system for mounting these engines.
