One of the creators of hypersonic weapons Herbert Efremov turned 85 years

Honorary Director General, Honorary General Designer of the Reutov Open Society “Military Industrial Corporation NPO Mashinostroyenia” ”Herbert Efremov celebrates today his 85 anniversary, reports Interfax-AVN.

One of the creators of hypersonic weapons Herbert Efremov turned 85 years

“The name of this man, who for a long time headed Chelomey’s famous firm, is inextricably linked with Soviet and Russian space rocket programs, the development and creation of various types of cruise missiles, as well as the recently becoming hypersonic reality weapons", - says the publication.

On March 1, Vladimir Putin, among other projects of the newest Russian weapons, called the Avangard strategic hypersonic missile system, whose mass production has already begun.

This system differs from the existing types of combat equipment with the ability to fly in the dense layers of the atmosphere to the intercontinental range at a hypersonic speed exceeding the Mach number by more than 20 times,
told the president.

According to media reports, successful tests of this aircraft were carried out on 25 on October 2016 of the year when the RS-18 “Stilet” ICBM was launched from the position area of ​​the Dombarovsky missile compound.

In June, 2017, Efremov was awarded the title of Hero of Labor of the Russian Federation "for outstanding services in strengthening the country's defense." Thus, he became the owner of (the only) two titles at once - the Hero of Socialist Labor and the Hero of Labor of the Russian Federation.

Earlier, in an interview with Interfax-AVN, Efremov noted that "there are reports in the press related to the engineering engineering NGO and the work on hypersound".

I can’t say anything else in this regard. But as a supervisor of many works, I want to say that hypersound is two "varieties." Hypersound motor and hypersound motorless,
he said.

According to him, "the hypersound motor begins somewhere with Mach 4,5."

Before 4,5, Mach is supersonic. And from 4,5 Mach begins the hypersound. Motor hypersound in the range from 4, and even from 3 or Mach 3,5, has not yet been implemented in the world. Many are now working on this, both here and abroad,
explained the designer.

A completely different direction - motorless hypersound. They are also all engaged. This is a special area that is not related to the difficulties of a motor hypersound,
He stressed.

As the general director of the military-industrial complex NPO Mashinostroeniya JSC (part of the Tactical Missile Armament Corporation) Alexander Leonov said at the beginning of 2018, “a great deal of work on creating advanced rocket and space technology was done by the company in all three traditional thematic areas: it’s the creation missile systems with anti-ship cruise missiles, complexes with ICBMs, space systems for various purposes. "

In all these areas, we are creating completely new complexes and systems that will ensure the defense capability of our country in the near future,
stated Leonov.

        With all due respect to the hero of the day at the Central Design Bureau, the problems began precisely with the arrival of Efremov.
        Still, Chelomei is a figure of a different scale.
        Well, my father thinks that he worked with both.

    Herbert clearly doesn’t agree on something: what final speed is the Russian cruise missile with a nuclear engine and unlimited range of 4M aimed at? bully

          If we are talking about these weapons, then the demonstration cartoon was shameful in terms of plot. At the end, the missile enters the bunker and the explosion takes place in a completely different area. You can see if you look at the frames.

            Well, yes, in terms of animation, we can’t catch the stripes. recourse
            We don’t know how to beautifully show how to bend the adversary,
            but this does not affect the result. hi

              It was necessary to do without any video at all. If there is no video from the tests, then cartoons are not required.

      And the CD on the Yard is hardly more than super-sound, well, even if it’s 1.5-2M, it doesn’t need it ... The main thing is long and nyzenko, in order to poison the adversary with exhaust ...

        Fuck a rocket like that, which has a nuclear power plant on board with a powerful like a fool shag and a fuel supply for a year?

        Moreover, the most favorable flight altitude of 4 M for aerodynamic heating of the aircraft is located at 30 km - i.e. where missile defense missiles do not reach and missile defense missiles fly?

      Yes you are joking! there are no mathematical methods for the analysis of highly potential and highly dynamic physical processes in their transformation. Therefore, everything is exceptional in the experiment and keeps. Moreover, it is quite obvious that there is no way to correctly solve problems that will lead to success. They do not even represent the causes of destruction of objects with increasing speed.

    On such old cadres from the USSR, and today's Russia holds on the defense plan ... in ten years such people will leave, but their work continues to live and is picked up by our young scientists. I think, in about ten years, generally strike and defensive weapons all over the world will move to a new or different level. And Russia should be the first!

      On such old cadres, the current Russia keeps on defensively from the USSR ... in a dozen years such people will leave,
      In today's Russia, there is a lot that keeps to the groundwork from Soviet science and technology, and that’s what the bourgeois education will give the country, and what has become of our science is a big question.

    it turns out that the scramjet is not there, and all these statements about hypersonic weapons are just marketing, controlled flights at speeds above 5m have been around for a long time, the same spiral, blizzard shuttles, laboratory cold .. and indeed any rocket when it reaches the first space 11km / s is hypersonic
