- With the development of the next generation of reusable aerospace vehicle, the technique of the Rocket Based Combined Cycle (RBCC) engine becomes increasingly significant and valuable. However, the performance of RBCC engine is coupled closely with the process of trajectory design. A model based on Radan Pseudospectral Optimal Method aiming at designing the boost trajectory is proposed in this paper. Two typical trajectories differing in variable and constant dynamic pressure constraints are simulated and compared. The constant dynamic pressure trajectory is designed simply with an acceptable optimal result. The feedback linearization algorithm to track the referent trajectory is analyzed and the simulated result shows its efficiency.
