Supersonic intakes are essential in assuring proper combustion for operating ramjet engines on cruise missiles. However, due to increasing threats and a rapidly changing service environment, today's intakes do not fit anymore to comply with the new set of requirements to tackle the above challenges. Therefore, a novel supersonic intake design is...

Since ramjet propulsion eliminates the need for oxidizers, it provides an alternative to classic rocket engines for missiles and projectiles. However, to capture free-stream air, ramjet engines require large supersonic air intakes, which can be an operational nuisance. A possible alternative is to make the supersonic intakes flush with the...

To evaluate the performance of proposed submerged intakes in an early design phase, a performance analysis model able to evaluate a range of intake geometries is required. This document details how such a model was developed with the use of available sub-models for specific flow features. A formulation of the method of characteristics suitable...
