Engine Vulcain 2.1, created for the main stage of the newest launch vehicle Ariane 6, was successfully tested in the German Lampoldshausen, reports Look with reference to the resource ArianeGroup.


In Germany, successfully tested the engine for the rocket Ariane 6


It is reported that the tests were carried out by specialists of the German Aerospace Center at the object Р5 in Lampoldhausen. The test lasted about 10 minutes.

“The Vulcain 2.1 engine is designed to power the main launch phase of the Ariane 6. This version of the engine is a modification of the Ariane 5 Vulcain 2 engine, adapted for the new launch vehicle in order to simplify production and reduce costs, ”says the material.

According to the resource, "the engine combines a gas generator created using 3D printing, a simplified divergent nozzle and an oxygen heater to increase the pressure in the tank."

It is noted that "modifications help achieve cost targets for the Ariane 6 launcher while maintaining the effectiveness and reliability of the Ariane 5."

The first flight of the carrier Ariane 6 is scheduled for 2020 year.



The resource reminds that “Ariane 6 is a European launch vehicle designed to put payloads into a low reference orbit or geo-transfer orbit”. Launches will be made from the Kourou launch site in French Guiana. The cost of creating a rocket and a new launch complex is estimated at € 4 billion. Currently, the main launch vehicle for the EU countries is Ariane 5.

The creation of the new rocket was approved by the Council of the European Space Agency in the autumn of 2016.

      That's it ! So far, our media has been giving laudatory messages in the style of non-world analogs. The West and Europe are quietly catching up and overtaking us! They will create a heavy-class rocket and launch an orbital station themselves!

        Let's see when it will fly, and at what price. By the way, are his characteristics known? And then maybe such a "miracle", in the USSR they did 40 years ago. Well, they’re doing their own thing so that they don’t depend on anyone, but here it has already begun, "they’ve given the rash."

          October 3, 1942 the Germans for the first time in the world launched a rocket into space to an altitude of over 100 km, do you think they will not be able to repeat this after 80 years? laughing

            The Americans, however, cannot fly to the moon again, worse, even fly into space. laughing Yes, I don’t mind, let the Germans fly wherever they want, it’s just that such a missile defense ... they divorced that everything, the end to everything, the Germans are ahead of the rest, will never catch up and so on. lol

      Actually, I’m mostly more in control systems, but something the engine drivers have been pulling for a long time, and the rare srach that is not related to the topic of the article (well, or rather weak - the engine’s name variants in honor of our “successful” manager) is gaining momentum. But the article, for all its brevity, contains rather interesting information.
      I have long wondered how Europeans are going to create a cheaper carrier based on Arian-5 technologies. Finally it began to clear up:
      According to the resource, "the engine combines a gas generator created using 3D printing, a simplified divergent nozzle and an oxygen heater to increase the pressure in the tank."

      A great solution in my opinion, instead of striving to improve the performance characteristics of the engine, complicating the design and technology, thereby increasing the cost, reduce the cost of the engine while "achieving the target cost indicators for the Ariane 6 launcher, while maintaining the efficiency and reliability of the Ariane 5".
      At the same time, I would like to note that Volcano-2.1 does not possess anything particularly outstanding in comparison with our RD-191. Therefore, I would like to draw the attention of our designers to such a development path that helps to create not competitively expensive Angara launch vehicles, but competitive products.

        The Germans consciously (sometimes forcedly) keep a “low profile” in some segments, but their capabilities are occasionally clarified in the form of pan-European programs.

    It is amazing how the situation in Kurdish Syria is hushed up in the Russian media. And there, by the way, the following happens: Yesterday, January 23, Kurdish troops fought back against Turkish troops and mercenaries from the Syrian Free Army (SSA) on the outskirts of Afrin (65 km from Aleppo). agency Firat. It is also reported that militias repulsed the attacks of the Turkish army and the SSA forces near the village of Amara in the district of Mabata. The enemy suffered losses (about 30 Turkish soldiers and a mercenary were killed during the battle) and retreated. And one remark about the discussion in the UN Security Council. The speech of our representatives causes a sacred laugh of bewilderment: an unprecedented tongue-tied tongue and babble. Russian diplomacy is degrading for reasons I do not understand. Add to this oil painting, another list of Russian athletes who will not be allowed to the Olympic Games. This will be followed by the removal of the Russian football team at the upcoming World Cup. That's what you should write about in all the bells of Russian truth!

    They (the bourgeoisie) have been successful lately because they have clear programs, goals, and healthy competition.
    I am embarrassed to ask - and the Russian Federation has a clear state program for space exploration - well, for example, like the PRC. And then they tell me for the "Federation" (pictures are attached). The layout while the current is made of pressed cardboard. But he saw the GDP. I ask the main one - well, you make a ship - and where is the rocket under it. what is your relationship with subcontractors - they pay me back in return. I’m sculpting it. Something like this.

      where does Ukraine ...
      The contract for the development of Ariane 6 was signed in 2015. The cost of its creation is estimated at € 3,6 billion. The main participants in the project are France and Germany, whose shares are 52% and 22%, respectively. In connection with the competition, it was decided to create a less expensive missile than the five.
      Ukraine and the EU in space are Vega.
      State Enterprise “Southern Machine-Building Plant named after Makarova ”(UMZ, Dnipro) will continue to supply the EU with serial marching engines for the fourth degree of the Vega lightweight launch vehicle. The Ukrainian and European sides continued until 2020 a contract for the supply of the 4th stage marching engine of the Vega RD-868P launch vehicle developed by the Yuzhne Design Bureau and Yuzhmash.
      According to the contract, the Ukrainian side plans to manufacture and supply 20 RD-868R engines.

    It fell snow under a window half a meter a night and the frost crushed with might and main. Therefore, the Olympians - good luck. Kurds - choose the same sponsor, one. And work consistently, like Israel, for example. According to the UN, I am more concerned with three things: the Crimean bridge, two streams and the Donbass in a compartment with Ukraine. The rest is from the evil one. And can wait.

      The so-called geopolitics has always been alien to Russian people. It was Peter the Great who pulled Russia into Europe through a window. And Petya Potroshenko through the window gap Ukraine. Donbass is my sore subject. Initially, it was planned that the Party of Regions would create a legitimate bridgehead in the Southeast, but hotheads from the Russian World spoiled the whole game. Donbass will never become Russia because of its economic and social uselessness. The Crimean bridge will be successfully put into operation. But with the flows, not everything is clear yet. In the end, everything is from the evil one.
