This design doesn't ring any bells with me, it may even be a nominal representation of an "Aerospace Plane" concept,

It's one of the Convair designs for the aptly-named "Aerospace Plane" program, a USAF program to develop an airbreathing reusable launch system.

A couple of very interesting images added to the SDASM's Flickr Commons collection today. The description for the side-view of the model in the photo is incorrect, however, the adjacent photo in the collection with a head on view describes the model as, "Model Aerojet; Plastic Space Plane Date: 07/09/1962".  The name on the model stand for the side-view describes the model as "Aerospace Plane."

As best as I can glean from the two photos of the model, it appears to be mixed-propulsion, with intakes aft along either side, presumably for the air-breathing portion of flight, plus what appears to possibly be provision for retractable canards on the nose.

This design doesn't ring any bells with me, it may even be a nominal representation of an "Aerospace Plane" concept, but I figure many here may have a better idea (if so, moderators please move to the most appropriate topic).

San Diego Air & Space Museum (SDASM) Archives have added additional System 476L presentation slides to their Flickr Commons collection.

Here are a couple of the interesting configurations depicted.

A dual engine pod arrangement with four-wheel bogey landing gear housed in the wings' anti-shock bodies.

A very fascinating Artikel by Manfred Popp

It show clearly what happen wen brilliant mind have to leave Germany,
because a Little Annoying Austrian wanted to murder them!
And what left are "Amateurs" in nuclear physics like Heisenbergs or von Weizsäcker

about Heisenbergs, i know stories were he ignored every advice and critic on his concept.
like Burkhard Heim proposal for a implosion working Nuke, A concept what was used in first US Atomic bomb test.
Heisenbergs dismiss the idea as "adolescent idiocy" and tell young Heim return to chemical experiments...
 
In Mean time in USA were jewish scientist already cooking Plutonium out Belgium uranium !
