Russia is planning to unveil a new hypersonic engine that is capable of propelling an aircraft up to 9000 kilometres at the MAKS-2015 air show in Moscow.

The engine was designed by the Central Institute of Aviation Motors (CIAM) in Moscow, Sputnik reported Sunday.

"An operational module of the supersonic combusting ramjet will probably be the most eye-catching piece at the CIAM booth," the institute was quoted as saying.

The engine can power commercial airliners as well as military transport planes.

The CIAM has developed various supersonic combusting ramjets. The Institute created Europe’s largest range to imitate flight conditions at speeds of Mach 5-7.5 (6,125-9,187 kmh).

The Institute has designed a module of a hydrogen supersonic combusting ramjet for rig tests. The engine delivered forward thrust, during tests under simulated flight conditions at speeds of Mach 7.4.
