This report documents the technical accomplishments of the ARES advanced Rocket Engine Storable Throttling and Scaling Study Program. Included also in this report is the sponsored design of a throttlable- restartable 100K ARES engine which was used as the baseline engine for this design study. Throttlable, restartable ARES Advanced Rocket Engine Storable engine designs are presented at 25,000, 100,000, and 500,000 lb rated thrust levels. On the basis of these designs, engine thrust scaling parametric data are presented over a thrust range of 25,000 to 500,000 lb with nozzle expansion ratios of 501 and 1501.
