This article analyses some design parameters on the exergetic and energetic performances for a small turbojet engine for unmanned vehicles. On the basis of theoretical data employed, some exergetic and aerothermodynamics aspects of the engine and its components are parametrically studied in terms of compressor pressure ratio (pi(c)) and turbine inlet temperature (T-t4). The results show that mainly based on the operating parameters for 2
