The current achievements of Concorde and its powerplant are summarised, and the route by which technology may be evolved for making further SST performance and environmental advances appropriate to a second generation aircraft is indicated. Experimental data on takeoff noise is discussed. Future improvements in turbine cooling technology applied to a turbofan of around 1.7 bypass ratio, together with possible future improvements in aircraft L/D and structure weight, should permit the development of an SST with substantial increases in payload percentage and range relative to Concorde while meeting current FAR Part 36 noise limits without a suppression system. The engine could be derived from the current Olympus 593 Mk 610.
