The University of Strathclyde Centre for Future Air-Space Transportation Technology (cFASTT) has published renderings of an aerospaceplane concept cFASST-1 which is presumably an SSTO vehicle in the same mode as Reaction Engines Skylon.
The project is briefly referred to in a news item from this summer by STV: Meet the scientists who want to send you to space.
From cFASST's Facebook page:
The Centre for Future Air-Space Transportation Technology (cFASTT) is a research centre at the University of Strathclyde that was established in 2010 with the intent of revolutionising future air and space travel.
The aim of cFASTT is to perform the dedicated long-term planning and research that is required to create the space access and air transport systems of the future.
With its strong academic base, cFASTT is helping to support the promising new space-access industry that has arisen since the demise of NASA's space shuttle, and is working with Government and Industry to develop new ways of providing cost effective, efficient and reliable global transport and access to space.
