A design concept is presented for an unmanned vehicle capable of sea level flight at Mach 6 for a distance on the order of 100 miles. The concept utilizes aerodynamic interference to minimize wave drag and stratified compression and combustion to reduce structural and heating loads on the vehicle. The three dimensional geometry of the inlet and nozzle ducts is derived using a method of streamtube tracing which provides a predefined flow field for flight at the design Mach number. Author
