We Build Dreams. CUSTOM CARS & RESTORATIONS
BAE Systems, a leader in defense and aeronautics, has purchased 20% of Reaction Engines, Limited (REL). REL was formed to develop the technology to take a craft from stop on a runway to orbital velocity, or twenty-five times the speed of sound. Standing in the way of progress was around 250 tons of oxygen propellant the vehicle would have to carry. To get around this, REL experimented with SABRE engines. At low velocities, SABREs work like typical air-breathing jet engines, burning atmospheric oxygen instead of payload fuel. At around five times the speed of sound, SABREs switch to rocket thrust. Both the jet and rocket cycles use the same combustion chamber and nozzles. The problem with that was atmospheric oxygen would have to be compressed to 140 atmospheres, making it hot enough to melt all known materials. So, RAL invented a heat exchanger 100 times lighter than conventional ones and capable of cooling airstreams from over 1,000oC to 150oC within 10 milliseconds. BAE will contribute capital and technological and management experience toward bringing the reusable, single-stage technology to demonstration.
