Russian scientists have developed a micromotor for spacecraft

33
The Russian company Avant Space, which manufactures microsatellites, has begun testing a miniature ion engine with external magnetic field technology, according to News.




For the first time in the world, an external magnetic field was realized in the ion engine, which made it possible to increase the energy efficiency of the system. We believe that this will be the key competitive advantage of our development,
Anton Ossovsky, the company's founder, told the newspaper.

He noted that "the use of such engines in the composition of mini-class satellites in low Earth orbit has great prospects."

Avant Space is currently working on two engine modifications - the GT-50 and the GT-100. The laboratory model of the ion source is being tested in the laboratory of plasma physics at Moscow State University. After working out the processes in the gas-discharge chamber of the engine, the model will be sent to the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology to conduct independent bench tests.

    They were only happy for the launch from Vostochny, but the rocket never reached the orbit. It seems that without this engine can not do.

      It still needs to be assembled and sent into orbit ... for flights to MARS it will do ... a matter of the distant future ... first you need to learn how to launch your missiles without shameful accidents.

        "As explained in Roskosmos, if the second switch-on did not happen, then there was no separation of the satellite. Probably, the upper stage along with the Meteor and the rest of the satellites remains in low Earth orbit, the space department noted. The Fregat accident could cause the third start from the East, which planned for December 22, as well as the launch of the Zenit launch vehicle from Baikonur. Starts can be delayed, since they also use the Frigate booster. (The first Russian TV channel "Tsargrad" 05:52., 29.11.2017/XNUMX/XNUMX.)

          In essence, the “Frigate” booster module “postman” displays satellites in various orbits, depending on their purpose, after which the maneuvering and braking engine is turned on, the module leaves orbit and falls to the ground.
          Along the way, there was a failure in the module software, "the electronic brain caught the coast" and after separation turned on the engines for braking and went not to space, but towards the earth ....

            What kind of private shop is Avant Space? We have a register of legal entities that can be searched on the website https://egrul.nalog.ru/ - NO (or I did not find)
            The site in the com zone is under development (patch comes out)
            Site in zone ru - registered in nic.ru, but also inactive.
            There is still a domain in Singapore, also with a patch !!! negative
            Again some kind of “new project” of golden youth? Again washed down the "national elite" of the selected children? angry

                Why is it possible? Well, I personally did NOT check, however, all this is very suspicious!

          It’s just that a Neputin colleague expressed his thought in such a way that it was hard to resist and not “tuck”. repeat But the fact that under Stalin such a mess as it was now he was not right.

            That’s why there were no liberals and democrats, therefore everything flew even though there were mistakes and flaws. There is nothing perfect except the old worked out and there are misfires there.

          The same LYOKHA ...... and even the captured FAA with German scientists used.

          It was a deal. The Americans managed before us. They took out equipment with several ready-made rockets, and a group of design engineers, led by Brown. We got the uncollected remains that Korolyov exported (under a pseudonym) with a specially created brigade. We collected 11 exported V-2s and created Kapustin Yar. In 1947, test launches began, 2 failed, and the rest went fine. yes

        Of course not ... But with it the foundation of the missile program was laid, which later became the space-rocket and leading in the world.
        But even then, when Stalin died, but people still didn’t get loose, there were unsuccessful launches. That’s something new, not mastered.
        But what is happening now in the Russian missile industry is not clear ...

      Yes, under Stalin this was not, because they still did not fly into space. But you are right in the main: there was no sloppiness, theft and there was responsibility (even through execution). There was no this mess characteristic of the liberal dermocratic regime.

          I agree they always stolen but in different ways. In the USSR, they did not steal millions and billions, so a bag of cement or a can of paint.

            yeah, and then Ilf and Petrov wrote novels about underground millionaires :))
            but seriously, officials and traders stole on the same scale as today - if not laziness, then remove the pink glasses and get acquainted with this topic

    I understand everything, but when our state protects the Russian language, if we lose our language - we lose Russia, it’s really not clear that there is a systematic work against all Russian.

      For the people, who would care, for the "servants of the people" for some reason there is no hope!
      This is sad, but pushes straight to such an idea - And why did we choose them, feed them and .... but is it time to get them all nafig or to hell. True, a legitimate question arises? And what will be the following?
      And again the question - What to do, where to run belay

    Now the second institute will also test the engine and pull the cat by the tail ... We could launch such a mini-satellite into space and track all the parameters directly in the right environment.

      Not necessary. Tests are not done like that. To depict figuratively the stupidity you have cited, I suggest you slurp cabbage soup, holding a spoon in your hand, but put the plate at a distance of 100 km. (Still, a little closer than the distance to the satellite.) Or even more fun, the toilet is in the neighboring area.
      Try, report the results.

      Now seriously. Any test is the removal of physical parameters using instruments, when everything is in place, on a stand, around hundreds of instruments, they write, measure and show.

    Well, the news, in general, is good. Business is necessary and useful.
    But I have a big question. Why is the Russian company not spelled in Russian letters and words, but in English letters and words ???? Do you have that Russian language, words and letters do not exist ??????
