    ramjet falls from a position, ramjet activates, ramjet returns to a position and then repeats.

    or

    what say the ramjet is pushed from b platform at a position, ramjet activates, ramjet is pushed back to a position / b platform.

    What?
    What are positions a and b?
    Presumably there's supposed to be a diagram.
    And why are you referring to ramjets when the thread title is scramjets?


    Edit: by the way, ramjets or scramjets for VTOL?
    Not in a million years.

    pos a and b are Positions. a and b are just placeholders meant to represent some unidentified position in space. I didn't know the diffrence between scram and ram jets. They are both the same from what I understand.

    mm, I wonder if this could be what these use for deceleration.

    In other words useless as far as explaining anything.

    If you'd actually read that link you'd have seen the difference: scramjet is a variant of a ramjet airbreathing jet engine in which combustion takes place in supersonic airflow.
    A ramjet will not work with supersonic (intake) airflow.

    Okay, you've added a diagram. So small as to be unreadable.

    Hmm, I wonder if this could be what these use for deceleration.
    Not powered.
