  Turborocket - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A turborocket is a type of aircraft engine combining elements of a jet engine and a rocket.
The idea behind a turborocket is to supplement the atmospheric oxygen with an onboard supply.
A turborocket typically comprises of a multi-stage fan driven by a turbine, which is driven by the hot gases exhausting from a series of small rocket-like motors mounted around the turbine inlet.

In the turbojet the driving gas was primarily air, in the fuel-rich turbofan and air turborocket the gas was hydrogen rich, and for the hydrogen-expansion engine the gas was all hydrogen.
The turborocket, being pushed by W. House of Aerojet-General Corporation, used a small rocket to provide the hot gases for driving a turbine, with the turbine driving the air compressor or fan.
The panel described a turborocket using liquid hydrogen as the fuel.

 SABRE - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The RB545's liquid hydrogen precooler had issues with embrittlement, patents and The Official Secrets Act, so Bond went on to develop SABRE in its place.
Like the RB545, the SABRE design is not a conventional rocket engine, but a precooled turborocket that burns hydrogen fuel and air.
At the front of the engine a single moving shock cone inlet slows the air to subsonic speeds and then passes the air through a precooler.

A concept is shown for a fully reusable, Earth-to-orbit launch vehicle with horizontal takeoff and landing, employing an air-turborocket for low speed and a rocket for high-speed acceleration, both using liquid hydrogen for fuel.
The turborocket employs a modified liquid air cycle to supply the oxidizer.
The rocket uses 90% pure liquid oxygen as its oxidizer that is collected from the atmosphere, separated, and stored during operation of the turborocket from about Mach 2 to 5 or 6.

Rocket engines need to carry both their fuel and air, which makes them carry around much more weight than a jet for the same amount of fuel burned.
The turborocket is an attempt to reduce the amount of air (or to be exact, oxidizer) that needs to be carried by extracting some from the air the rocket flies through.
Typical designs use a compressor similar to that of a traditional jet engine, but mix that along with additional oxidizer from the tanks.

This was the turborocket, a combination of rocket and air-breathing engine, which went back as far as a suggestion by Goddard (
The British had also investigated the turborocket by 1945, and Wright Field became interested after the war.
One of the best known champions of the turborocket was William C. House, who proposed a cycle in 1949 while an employee of the Aerojet Engineering Corporation.

It is anticipated that future turbine-based propulsion systems such as turbojet, turbo ramjet, and air turborocket will be capable of higher compressor pressure ratio and higher turbine temperature and will be capable of operating at higher Mach number.
By the year 2015 it is anticipated a turbine-based propulsion system could be operational that could provide the required specific impulse and thrust necessary to operate across a Mach number range from subsonic to about Mach 3 to 5.
Alternative Baseline Concepts and Subsystems Evaluation The alternative baseline concepts and their subsystems will be evaluated against the requirements of Section 2.0, using the Georgia Tech TMD methods or similar conceptual design and analysis tools.

It is proposed to verify the feasibility and estimate the performance of a neural propulsion control system for an air breathing rocket.
A Decentralized / hierarchical control system will be developed with separate neural or classical controllers for the air liquefacation and enhancement system, the turborocket operating in its turbojet mode, and the turborocket operating in its rocket mode; and a hierarchical controller to coordinate the ALES and turbojet controllers.
This system will be designed to maximize oxygen collection and turbojet performance while minimizing fuel usage and water vapor and carbon dioxide contaminants in the collected oxygen.
