This Aerojet-General report from 1964 discusses the possible future evolution of liquid oxygen / liquid hydrogen -fueled rocket engines from 1966 to 1986. From the M-1 rocket engine to the notional Advanced Engine, Ducted Rocket, and then Advanced Air Cycle for post Saturn launch vehicle applications such as Nova.

Yes, Bob Truax was working for Aerojet when Sea Dragon was being developed.
