SABRE is an innovative new class of aerospace propulsion system that has the potential to provide efficient air-breathing thrust from standstill on the runway to speeds above five times the speed of sound in the atmosphere. The SABRE engine can then transition to a rocket mode of operation, allowing spaceflight at up to orbital velocity, equivalent to twenty-five times the speed of sound. Through is ability to 'breathe' air from the atmosphere, SABRE offers a significant reduction in propellant consumption and weight compared to conventional rocket engines which gives it the potential to power single stage to orbit vehicles.


Dr Robin Davies DPhil MIET CEng BEng(hons) Robin joined Reaction Engines Ltd in Sept 2013 as head of Systems and Control. His work involves simulation and design of the SABRE hybrid air breathing rocket engine and all the systems aspects of the engine integration, from requirements to test.
