DARPA has tapped Boeing to develop a SIngle Stage to Orbit plane for satellite delivery dubbed the Phantom Express. The spaceplane will climb to it's satelite release point using the thrust from an Aerojet Rocketdyne AR-22, a legacy from the shuttle program. Once its payload is released it will do a glide return, and be ready for refuelling and another trip into space. During the test phase the plane is to do a flight a day for ten days, an ambitious schedule considering the original plan to launch a shuttle flight every month. 

Here's DARPA's take on what a Phantom Express Mission would look like.
