SABRE: Enabling Single Stage to Orbit Safely

Recently, at the IAASS conference in Florida USA, Dr Andy Quinn and Richard Varvill of Reaction Engines presented a paper that:
provides an overview of the design features of SABRE as integrated in to a spaceplane concept (such as Skylon) along with abort strategies, safe design philosophy and loss of vehicle/abort targets

The Right Stuff versus the The Right, Safe Thing

At the IAASS held in Florida last month, Dr Andy Quinn and Dr Ivan Sikora submitted a paper titled “The Right Stuff versus the The Right, Safe Thing”. The paper contends that

… safety management and safety engineering are essential disciplines that should be integrated with the design team from the concept phase.
