Abstract

The paper presents results of the aerodynamic design of the Rocket Plane in a tailless configuration. It is part of a Modular Airplane System - MAS. The system is devoted to the space tourism and the Rocket Plane is the main component of the system. The main goal of the research was improving aerodynamic characteristic of the Rocket Plane. The paper presents the proposal of modification of the initial Rocket Plane geometry which is being results from the optimization process. The final geometry of the Rocket Plane is resulting of a number of optimization.
