Right now the development of a space plane from ISRO is worth mentioning.It can be inserted into the next generation space vehicle’s category.And this is currently being described as two stage orbit plane or TSTO-TD.Which may be given a name later on formally.According to ISRO ,this is going to be a work of ISRO in the future,Which along with reducing the launching cost,it is also going to add a lot of mission flexibility.It’s basic concept ‘which has been given to a large extent from the reusable launch vehicle.But this is going to be technology even beyond that.When it is launched ,it will be engaged with 4 turbo scramjet engine.Which is going to take up 8 km altitude and during this time it will have achieved the speed of 6,after which it will be have it’s scramjet engine,which is going to take 50 km altitude ,and then it will be reached the speed of 9.                                                                                                                                                                             After this ,an additional rocket also be attached to it,which will take up to 300 km orbit .It can carry a payload of up to 2t per LEO.And when the glide comes back,its turbo scramjet engine is going to be re-engaged in 15 km altitude,which will help in maintaining smooth speed till landing.Now the waight is going to be around 133t.And so far no information has been given about it from ISRO,when it will be started to develop it.But ISRO is currently making small reusable launch vehicles,whose full scale variant can be launched by 2030.                                                                                  But it takes a lot of time to make,because 133t is not a small amount and its waight is equal to the waight of a c-17 aircraft,so to power such a heavy space vehicle, we are going to need the same type of scramjet engine.The model you are looking at is also not fully accurate,because of better understanding we have made this.
