Abstract : The Conference Proceedings contains 15 unclassified papers and a Keynote Address presented at the Propulsion and Energetics Panel 79th Symposium on Airbreathing Propulsion for Missiles and Projectiles which was held 1lth-15th May 1992 in Villepreux, near Bordeaux, France. The Symposium was arranged in the following sessions: Ramjets and Ram Rockets: Survey papers (2 unclassified papers); Ramjets and Ram Rockets: Propulsion Systems (2); Ramjets and Ram Rockets: Combustion, Fuels, Materials (3); Projectile Airbreathing Propulsion (1); Aerodynamics and Engine Integration (3); Turbojets and Turborockets (3); and Common Techniques (1). The Technical Evaluation Report is included at the beginning of the Proceedings. Questions and answers of the discussions follow some of the papers. Nineteen additional classified papers will be published in a classified volume. Being faced with more advanced detection and interception systems, there is a need for the development of missiles with increased penetration capabilities and propulsion systems for flight at low altitude and high speed with long range and diversified trajectories. For these requirements air-breathing engines are highly economic and flexible. The Symposium was intended to be a forum for discussing advances made in this field since the conduct of a similar Symposium in the autumn of 1981.
