Contracts for the supply of Russian rocket engines in the United States were concluded on the 2019 year inclusive, reports Interfax a message from Igor Arbuzov, general director of NPO Energomash.


On "Energomash" talked about the supply of rocket engines in the US


Today, foreign contracts provide more than half of the proceeds, the rest is state order. The bulk of the revenue is generated from the supply of rocket engines in the USA - РД-180 for the United Launch Alliance and РД-181 for Orbital ATK,
Arbuzov said in an interview with the newspaper "Izvestia".

According to him, there are no problems with the supply of engines - the company fulfills all its obligations.

We have contracts for 2019 year inclusive, there is a discussion of deliveries for subsequent years. Given the manufacturing cycle, we are in the active phase of negotiations with Orbital ATK and ULA. This is a very good order for us, which ensures the financial stability of the company,
stressed the general director.

Responding to a question about the possible termination of US contracts in connection with developments in the United States of rocket engines, which are intended to replace Russian, Arbuzov said:

Is there life after RD-180? Today, the company has enough contracts. In addition, we are not stopping the search for new foreign partners, we are developing new engines for promising launch vehicles.


Commenting on the negotiations with the Chinese company "Great Wall", he said that "China creates an engine close in its characteristics to the Russian RD-180, which is exported for American Atlas 5 missiles."

China is also interested in the RD-170 engine, the most powerful in the world, used in the Soviet super-heavy rocket Energia, and then in a modified form on Zenit missiles. Its further development is connected with the Russian medium-class rocket Soyuz-5 and in the future with a super-heavy rocket. China is also moving towards the creation of a carrier of a super-heavy class, which is why he is interested in our developments,
explained the CEO.

However, there is no question of selling a lot of Russian engines to China.

We understand that for China will be unacceptable form of interaction, which we use with American partners - the supply of ready-made rocket engines. If cooperation will continue to develop, then in the field of research works, the exchange of specialists, consultations in solving emerging problems,
said watermelons.

        If cooperation will develop (with China), then in the field of research, exchange of specialists, consultations in solving problems,

        This is stupid and short-sighted. The easiest way to bargain is that you are not created. If Mr. Arbuzov himself would have taken an active part in the development of a rocket engine, then he probably would not have said so. Although, on the other hand, maybe these statements sound so loud, but the output is only blah blah blah and all with their own.

Even this hour, some have not criticized the article "Energomash" criticized. for American "spy companions" .. well, the easy "unreasonableness" of such ANNalitiks is fearless, And the fact that NPO Energomash remains the world leader in its segment and conducts successful research and development work, for the benefit of Russia, they are not interested .....

            That is, based on the article, we see that half of the state order revenue. and half export .. And therefore, if the state pays for this half of export revenue, will they continue to conduct scientific research? respectively, it is necessary that the state allocated money? But we don’t have money like that! Yeah .. But here on the US Treasury under a scanty percentage of the money we have! And the USA, having received this money from us, successfully buys again rocket engines from US for its programs aimed primarily against US! Isn't it idiocy? Let's give money to the enterprise directly bypassing The United States and its interests .. Everything will remain as before, but the United States will have problems, instead of the air that they pay for the finished product, they will have to invest REAL resources taking them from other projects ..

          To put it precisely in the article, the RD-170 is the world's most powerful LIQUID rocket engine. The MTKK was the absolute leader in this regard - the most powerful rocket engine ever created (the Shuttle side accelerator).

          Well, there are slightly different technologies, but in general I agree with you. For example, China is building copies of our ANCr (air cruisers) and so what? Their J-15 analogue of our su-33 is also not well known about him, neither what radar is there, nor the engines, nor the avionics, which missiles can he carry? Everything is under a big question, personally for me. It sometimes seems to me that China is bluffing, and in everything, both in the Navy and in other types of troops.

          The Americans have never grown their designers and are unlikely to grow, given what is happening there in the country. Limousines are one thing to produce, and rocket engines are another thing. But the Chinayoses purposefully grow designers. And sooner or later they will grow up.

      Former employee of the Central Scientific Research Institute of Mechanical Engineering - 76-year-old former head of the Center for Aerodynamic Testing Vladimir Lapygin was sentenced to 7 years in a high security colony in the case of high treason. The verdict passed by the Moscow City Court.

      As previously reported by MK, Candidate of Physics and Mathematics, a senior research fellow at the institute was detained in May last year. The case was classified, and the person involved was placed under house arrest and did not even dispute this preventive measure. The scientist, according to rumors, was charged with cooperation with one of the Asian countries. It all ended up that Lapygin was still imprisoned - for transmitting classified data to representatives of a foreign state.

      Apparently, intelligence agencies became interested in scientists back in 2013. It was in that year that he was unexpectedly removed from his post at his native TsNIImash. And it was a big surprise for everyone. As the old employees of the research institute told us, Lapygina was chosen by the work collective as the director of the Center, and there were no prerequisites for him suddenly falling out of favor for all 20 years of his work in this position.

      “Yes, Vladimir Ivanovich as a scientist participated in international congresses, traveled to China and other countries. For example, sometimes he went to the annual congress of IFAK (International Federation for Automatic Control). So what?" - his former colleagues shared with us. They are perplexed as to how to condemn a person for transferring some technology to China, if the Celestial Empire has long had all the equipment like two drops of water similar to ours, but not thanks to spies, but thanks to the official close cooperation of the two countries.

      How did these tales, about licenses sold to Americans, about the rights of Americans to the engines themselves and the like nonsense?
      1) Americans have a license to manufacture these engines in their factories. The license is valid until the 2020 year, after which the Americans are deprived of the right to manufacture these engines and must destroy the documentation on them. But the Americans thought that the start of the production of engines at their facilities was too troublesome, costly and time consuming task (the timeline in 6 years was voiced, then 6, etc. - this is only the start of production). Therefore, it is cheaper and easier to buy ready-made engines from Energomash.
      2) All rights to the engines belong to Energomash. There are Russian patents for development used in these engines, there are duplicate American patents for the same developments. In US patents, the right holder is clearly indicated - Energomash. So the Americans did not have any rights to the engines (there is a near ending license for their production on their territory). Moreover, the rights of Energomash are protected by law in the States themselves. It was very far-sighted, so that the "partners" did not have a desire to steal the designs and register them for themselves. All patents are available for review on the website of the US Patent Office. There you can track the history of the patents themselves, which says that for all the time the right holder has not changed and they still have Energomash.

      Why hold on to technology and produce an engine that is never used for its own needs? There were two options: the first - do nothing on the side, and sit without money; and the second: make money on the sale of licenses, and in view of the Americans' reluctance to establish their own engine production, to make it at home, having a guaranteed income from this. The point was that everything was spinning back in those days when such a tough confrontation between our countries had not yet been observed.

        No one sold the license. The United States paid for the design of the RD-180 and has all the rights. The license for the production of RD-180 is used by Energomash (maybe Energomash in the calculations even pays for the use of the license itself)!
