RATIONALE FOR A SECOND-GENERATION SUPERSONIC TRANSPORT

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.
