Yuzhnoye Design Bureau conducted fire tests of the Cyclone IV rocket stage with an 10-year delay

42
Ukrainian Design Bureau "Southern" reported on testing the stage of the launch vehicle. It is stated that this is the first in the newest stories Ukraine fire tests of the launch vehicle.




This is a Cyclone IV missile.

With pathos, the employees of the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau announced that they are dedicating the fire tests to the 28 anniversary of the "independence".

From the message of the design bureau:

For the first time in recent history, fire tests of the stage of the launch vehicle as a whole were carried out - the third stage of the middle-class launch vehicle Cyclone-4, designed by Yuzhny Design Bureau manufactured at Yuzhmash, was burned.

It is noted that the launch vehicle is designed to launch satellites into orbit.

If you believe the messages of the design bureau, then all the tests confirmed the inherent characteristics. The RD-861K engine of the launch vehicle stage was switched on five times. Now the design bureau is preparing to publish a detailed report on the progress and results of the fire tests of the Cyclone IV stage.

Also, the Design Bureau proudly announced that "they are actively cooperating with the United States of America" ​​on the issue of rocket science. Apparently, this is precisely what the main emphasis was on the day of the 28th anniversary of Ukrainian "independence".

Paphos of the design bureau was somewhat overshadowed by Ukrainian users, noting in the comments that even Wikipedia recalls the delay in launching this launch vehicle by Ukraine for about 9 years. The tests were supposed to be completed in the 2009 year - as a result, the delay in the test period was about 10 years.

      They screwed up OUR space exploration program - apparently, they worked "for the Yankes." And if, in addition, Americans buy from the Cyclone-IV skakuas, then the secret will immediately become apparent and imagine HOW then the skippers will lift their nose high (well, of course, "we wash our socks ourselves" ...) yes

          So everyone announces success with pathos. Especially since

        so who is to blame then ..
        Somewhere Rogozin and all the officials of Roscosmos sighed with relief ..
        This Ukraine is to blame for everything ..
        (supplies of equipment for space went on continuously - the RF consistently refused self-import substitution of minor materials did not play a big role)
        The design of the Cyclone-4M rocket launcher is created according to a simple two-stage scheme and is based on the use of existing or already developed units and assemblies. This approach can significantly reduce development costs and time. The configuration of the first stage is based on the designs of the first stage of the Zenit LV and the main structure of the first stage of the Antares LV, which are mass-produced at Yuzhmash. She uses a kerosene-oxygen fuel pair. As the second stage of the Cyclone-4M, the third stage of the Cyclone-4 rocket launcher is used, which has been modified to provide autonomous refueling with high-boiling fuel components at a filling and neutralization station and subsequent amplification. The head unit of the Cyclone-4M rocket launcher is a modified GB of the Cyclone-4 rocket launcher. Development of a preliminary design of the Cyclone-4M ILV has already been completed.
        At the launch facility in Nova Scotia, it is first intended to use only the middle-class Cyclone-4M launch vehicle developed by the KBYU and manufactured at Yuzhmash. But subsequently, from this cosmodrome it will be possible to launch launch vehicles of other types.
        The Cyclone-4M project is purely commercial
        a cosmodrome project in the Hazel Hill area of ​​the Canadian province of Nova Scotia near Kanso. The Cyclone-4M project to launch spacecraft from Canada has successfully passed an environmental review.

          Ukrainian-made components were installed on all our space rockets and satellites. This was the kind of cooperation that allowed their enterprises to develop. That's it. As a result, we lost an excellent conversion rocket with a low launch cost per kg - "Dnepr". The launches of a good conversion rocket "Rokot" have been practically stopped - the RB "Breeze-KM" has a control system from Hartron. The production of the Zenit medium missile has been completely stopped. The production of the Soyuz-FG medium rocket was discontinued.

          But there is a silver lining - now our enterprises are already producing similar products. Although it was necessary to import dozens of equipment components from satellites.

              Not yet preparing. Only the production of its tanks is being worked out and work is underway on its automation. In addition, the Irtysh (Soyuz-5) is not an analogue of Zenith. It is more powerful and modern. It has a different tank diameter and a control system from another manufacturer. Another second stage engine and head fairing. Newer powerful overclocking unit. Accordingly, it will take it from the Baikonur latitude to ~ low Earth orbit ~ 17 kg, and to the geo-transitional orbit ~ 000 kg. At Zenit-5500SLB, such characteristics were possible only from the equator, from the offshore platform. And the version of Union-3 for Sea Launch is planned even more interesting. wink

                  A competitor with a rocket which is no longer? laughing The picture is wrong. You have on the left an optional project "Soyuz-5" from the RCC "Progress" from 2016. And on the right, a proposal from the RKK is also of old shaggy.

                      So it can be said that all missiles resemble each other. laughing Zenith was thinner and the size of the steps he had was different. And the external similarity is due primarily to the launch tables, from which they plan to launch this rocket.

        No, I think this is also a surrender of interests. We contribute to the development of our enemy, no one will guarantee that these technologies are not used against us. Perhaps there is a motive for mutual development, we give them technology, and they give us money. But, money is a temporary and ending resource, and technology can destroy a country in a couple of minutes. It does not cost any money.

It has already been created, and no matter what you think of there, it will take their payload from Plesetsk. It is banal simply because all military launches from Baikonur have already been stopped. And from 2023, the payload from the Vostochny cosmodrome.

    Unclear.
    Looked at Wikipedia
    On the one hand, it’s understandable why the Brazilian-Ukrainian project fell apart - the Iridium launches, which he was counting on, intercepted Musk, the Brazilians left the project, and without the cosmodrome, which was planned in Brazil, it’s clear that everything died out, Ukraine obviously has no money for it .
    But further it is not clear.
    . In March 2017, Yuzhnoye Design Bureau announced that it was developing a two-stage Cyclone-4M rocket, created on the basis of the Cyclone-4. The project will be financed by the Canadian company Maritime Launch Services. The spaceport will be located on the Atlantic coast of Canada. The planned term for putting the missile complex into trial operation is 2020.

    The number of steps mixed up and Canadians with the Americans?
    So why did they experience this third step and who pays for it, is Ukraine clearly incapable of this?
    Or is it just self-promotion?

    I agree with you. After lunch on the couch, it’s easier to talk about who to collaborate with and what’s going on with the soul) And for ordinary employees (engineers, craftsmen, cleaners, all kinds of administrators, accountants, etc.) who don’t want to leave there is nothing corny to eat. And everyone has a family that needs to be provided. I’m sure that if Kiev is allowed to work with Russia, then tomorrow morning there would have been calls to Roscosmos with a proposal to resume at least some kind of cooperation. And so they’ll put him in prison.
