The paper identifies an advanced technology supersonic transport that could be available for commercial service in the 1993 time period. It is estimated that this concept could lead to a configuration that would make possible airline operations with operating cost equal to that of the current widebody jets in service today. This airplane will meet all present-day ecological requirements regarding noise and emissions.
