The head of the State Space Agency of Ukraine (SSAU), Pavel Degtyarenko, revealed the details of the cooperation between the design bureau Yuzhnoye and the Yuzhmash plant with the North American company Maritime Launch Services (MLS) on the development of the Cyclone-4M medium rocket.


Disclosed details of the production of "Yuzhmash" missiles for the United States


According to Degtyarenko, who previously held the position of chief designer of Yuzhny, the design of a two-stage carrier involves the use of developments obtained in the implementation of Cyclone-4. In particular, the second stage of the new rocket will be created on the basis of the third stage and the head unit. It also assumes the maximum use of existing rocket engines, primarily the RD-861K, which was planned to be installed on the third stage of the Cyclone-4.

Such an approach will allow the launch of new missiles as soon as possible at Yuzhmash, Degtyarenko notes.

Given the commercial nature of the project, it does not provide state funding from either Ukraine or Canada.
- he declared.

The head of the GKAU also indicated that “enterprises of the space industry of Ukraine completely ceased cooperation with enterprises of Russia in the areas of military and dual-use products” and continue “actively working to reduce the share of imports of components to the country's rocket and space technology”. He noted that in 2017, 51,5 percent of the products of enterprises in this industry were exported, while the 93 percent fell to the European Union, the USA and a number of other countries.

In the spring of 2017, it became known that MLS plans to launch modified Cyclone-4 Ukrainian rockets from the Canso-Hazel Hill site under construction on the Atlantic coast (Nova Scotia, Canada). The construction of the cosmodrome, a modification of the Cyclone-4 and the first launch of the Cyclone-4M in the 2020 year are estimated at 240 million dollars. By 2022, MLS plans to hold eight starts each year.

Earlier, the Cyclone-4 project was developed by Ukraine in cooperation with Brazil. The program, according to the assurances of the Ukrainian side, completed on 90 percent, was curtailed in 2015, reports "Lenta.ru"

          If there is no money, then this program can be really curtailed and not started.

            the program can be minimized properly and without starting

            Adopting a program does not mean that it will be implemented, especially in Ukraine, where people and politicians live one day, and no one knows what will happen tomorrow. Although not true, everyone knows what will happen in Ukraine tomorrow. Nothing, from the word Absolutely.

      Yes, all this is a fairy tale, nothing good at Yuzhmash will be released. Regular Ukrainian Wishlist and beating your heels in the chest. There were no specialists, no production facilities, if something was able to produce, then only full-fledged layouts for exhibitions. laughing

    The United States also seemed to want to drill shale gas, but something went wrong. With rockets, it seems to me it will be about the same.

      Drilling a little
      Since the beginning of 2017, Ukrgasvydobuvannia increased natural gas production by 2016 million cubic meters compared to the same period in 635 - up to 15 billion cubic meters.

    I thought the offshore platform would be placed at the equator.

      What would Mos, K. Alam wipe their noses.
      The most ancient help moon-walkers to master launches from the north and to prove to everyone that their technology, even with such launches, is more economical, more effective than for example with Kuru.
      PS.
      Or maybe they just call for money.
      On occasion, I’ll ask the comrade from Ukrkosmos.

    Paradoxical as it may sound, but if everything works out and the money is “effective-defective”, I personally will be glad for the enterprise) Although the enterprise, which was the pride of a great country (sorry for the pathos), and simple hard workers bread ...
    How many, both we and they, have ruined such! .. (
    And yet, whatever one may say, they’ll “sail” back to home anyway ... So, at least, something will remain
    Not forever, however, the ghouls in power sit!

    The third step for the European Vega is made by that very plundered and plundered Yuzhmash, where there is nothing, not specialists, nor a production base. It is interesting and who do these steps ????

    Have you tried to read carefully? With Brazil, not Canada. The reason for the closure of the project is 1 or 2 carrier accidents at the spaceport with the destruction of the site ...
