Perspectives of Yuzhnoye Design Bureau through the eyes of its leadership

23
According to the blog information bmpd, Air & Cosmos magazine posted an interview with the acting CEO SE "Yuzhnoye" Mikhail Bondar, located in Dnepropetrovsk. VO gives his main points.

The implementation of the Sea Launch program, which was suspended in 2014, was revived in June of this year, when the Russian company S7 Sea Launch contracted the plant "Yuzhmash" 12 launch vehicles "Zenit-2". At the same time, supplies of components from the Russian Federation (in particular, the first-stage engine and control system) do not cause objections.

No, there will be no problems. This is the world of space, and Ukraine, like many space powers, is partially dependent on imports.


Perspectives of Yuzhnoye Design Bureau through the eyes of its leadership


The Ukrainian VG143 engine used in the fourth stage of the Avum of the European Vega carrier rocket continues to be in demand.

Refusal from VG143 is not at all on the agenda: we will continue to work with Europe!


12 engines have been shipped to Italy, of which 9 have already been successfully applied when entering space. The 4 engine is in production and testing at the Yuzhmash plant. It is supposed to conclude a contract for another 20 units.



During the implementation of the Cyclone-4M project, the first flying missile model was created, but the partners left it for economic reasons. Subsequent completion of work is planned in conjunction with Canada.

For "Cyclone-4M" we almost found a launch pad and the program is well developed.


Mainly components for this carrier will be produced in Ukraine, in particular, engines that will run on a mixture of kerosene and liquid oxygen. Partially they will be imported, “as always happens in the aerospace industry”.

    Unite with the DPRK, they need it, although the progress of the Koreans in this area has occurred not without Ukrainian participation.

      the progress of the Koreans in this area took place not without Ukrainian participation.

      Rocket technology spread after the collapse of the USSR, and naturally most of the leaks were from this design bureau. Koreans were trying to find engines and gyroscopes.
      According to the sea launch, S7 Group's subsidiary, S7 Space Transport Systems, bought this Start literally that year, the command vessel and launch platform will be re-registered from California to Liberia. Those. we see, so to speak withdrawal of capacities from Americaleaving this interesting and demanded project for the Russian company. The problem is that the Zenith missile, sharpened for Morstart, is Ukrainian, on the other hand, it is costly to design our launch vehicle and a problem with time. Engines "Zenith" (main stage) and the upper stage are ours, i.e. our industry will take its toll. Plus, the participation of Boeing in Zenit will probably also end. I suspect the decision was made at the very top, by the Dark Lord. For a mobile spaceport is a necessary thing, especially if the Americans were kicked out of this topic wassat

        If you post information, then post it completely, without speculation.
        Firstly, an order for 12 Zenits-2s looks like an outright fake. At Energomash, only 4 pieces of RD-171M remained from the Energia program, where they will take the remaining 8 pieces is not clear.
        Secondly, it has long been announced that the Soyuz-5 will be able to launch from the Sea Launch, moreover, a project for a partial alteration of the Sea Launch for a rocket diameter of 4,1 meters is already ready. So Zenith-2 will not start from where.
        Thirdly, for Soyuz-5, further modernization of the engine under the designation RD-171MV is being launched. And whether it is hypothetically suitable for Zenit-2 is not yet known. It is also known that these engines will be produced at the site in Fili, and not at the plant in Perm, which means that they will only be enough for Soyuz-5 and Sunkar.
        In general, a fake, it is a fake and there is nothing to discuss about it.

          You need to know what kind of groundwork the Yuzhnoye design bureau has and then to judge. Also Sea Launch, since it will register its offshore capacities offshore, plus the company that owns it, as it were, is private, I can assume that this will be a reserve against sanctions against the Russian Federation, plus, of course, dumping on the market. Therefore, of course, it is necessary to take the backlog of the South, our propulsion production and already slap the contract for the number of carriers, which in fact we did. I will also assume that the Yuzhny specialists will be dragged to us under the guise of this contract under a plausible pretext (already flashed in the press).

    Canada tapericha is also in the forefront of the space powers !!!

    It is difficult to do this in a short time. We now have Sea Launch, but no missiles for it. The creation of the same Sungar launch vehicle jointly with Kazakhstan will take several years. All this time "Sea Launch" will be idle. The contract for a dozen Zenith missiles for the MS will allow not to keep the cosmodrome at bay ...

    And what is difficult to voice the conclusion on the surface? To do this, you do not need to be either an expert, or a virtual head of Roscosmos, or a real head of Roscosmos. it is enough to be only a sane person.

    You can be naughty as much as your heart desires. Is there another way out? What is more profitable? Buy a dozen Zenits from Ukraine and launch a certain number of satellites into orbits, having received money for it or do nothing, leave the cosmodrome idle for another 5-10 years, spending money on its maintenance and not receiving a penny from it, as from cosmodrome?

    And this is not a question for me. And to that real head of Roskosmos, who not only took money from the Kazakhs, but with all his might pushed the stillborn "Angara", on the basis of which "Baiterek" was planned. But alas, the dead cannot answer this question.

    A promising engine on semi-liquid organic fuel - lard - has been developed in Ukraine.
