The deadlines for the assembly of the prototype space truck "Argo"


The press service of the company "Aerospace Composite Technologies" today reports some details of future work on a new generation spaceship. We are talking about the spacecraft "Argo", which, as noted, will be almost 60 percent composed of components of a composite production cluster located near Voronezh.


The use of modern composite materials will make it possible to halve the Argo mass in comparison with that which would correspond to a ship with metal components. Accordingly, as noted by experts, this will lead to a final reduction in the cost of putting the spacecraft into orbit. So, the cost of removing a kilogram of cargo by the Argo ship will be half the cost of removing a kilogram of Progress-MS cargo from the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle.

The press release notes that the company "ACT", starting in 2023, within ten years will produce 11 bodies of the new space truck. It should be noted that Argo is planned as a reusable space cargo ship.

According to customer requirements, Argo will be able to put into orbit up to 2 tons of cargo and return from orbit to Earth up to a ton of cargo. The first (prototype) model of a space truck will appear in 2023.

General Director of the enterprises of the Voronezh Composite Cluster (plants "Lamplex Composite", "ACT") Vyacheslav Kursakov:

The manufacture of the ship’s hull and its elements is one of the most labor-consuming, costly and innovative tasks in the implementation of the Argo project. The main specialization of the AKT plant will be the production of composite structures, hulls and parts for reusable spacecraft, frame structures, nozzle nozzles of rocket engines and other carbon fiber-based products.

From the statement of Vyacheslav Kursakov:

The use of composite materials in the manufacture of the ship's hull will provide two main advantages - lightness and strength. At present, access to Russia of advanced world technologies and raw materials for the space industry is seriously hampered due to economic sanctions. Therefore, the products of the Composite cluster are of important import-substituting importance for our country.

    God give it. The future lies with composites and you need to have time to jump on the bandwagon of the train. In the space sector, releasing competitors is by no means impossible.

            some developments on this topic already existed.

            Take an interest in how and from what the buildings of the Pioneer steps were made, for example. (This is the forerunner of "Topol")
            So they are also solid fuel, and not just tanks.

      Thus, the cost of removing a kilogram of cargo by the Argo ship will be half the cost of removing a kilogram of Progress-MS cargo from the Soyuz-2 launch vehicle.

      = fool and 2 more times fool
      the tare weight of the ship, which is "at the very" top of the launch vehicle, of course, affects the launch cost, but it is not directly proportional. This misinformation for UO ("they will buy anyway")

      In the future, it is planned to use the newly developed Soyuz-5 rocket.


      The total mass of the Argo spacecraft is 11,5 tons, the cargo compartment is 11 m³, the diameter is 4,1 m, the height is 5,6 m. The tanks of the combined propulsion system (provide maneuvering in orbit, detach before launching) hold up to 1200 kg of fuel, the same capacity in tanks of the combined propulsion system (provides descent control and landing)


      look


      11500 kg (full) -2000 kg (cargo) - 1200 kg of fuel = 8300 kg tare weight
      how can i get
      The estimated cost of one cycle (launch and landing) is $ 9,846 million

                      2. SpaceX independently recreated the entire technological cycle: Musk decided not to use the components produced by the aerospace contractors, but to do everything on his own: “Although we rely on the ideas of numerous programs using launch vehicles, from Apollo to X-34 / Fastrac, SpaceX in-house develops Falcon rocket from scratch, including both engines, a turbopump, cryogenic reservoir structure and guidance device“Own development from scratch increases the complexity of the project and requires more investment, but no other methods will give us the opportunity to reduce the cost of access to space.”
                      3. The company came: the legendary Tom Muller (led the creation of the TR-10 oxygen-hydrogen engine), Chris Thompson (led the production of Delta and Titan rockets at Boeing), Tim Buzz also came from Boeing (one of the best rocket testers in the world), Steve Johnson (work experience in JPL and two commercial aerospace companies), Hans Koenigsmann (on-board electronics and guidance and control systems), etc., etc.
                      The Russians, who dominated the field of sending goods and people into space, use equipment developed decades ago. In the tight capsule of the Soyuz spacecraft, in which the astronauts are sent to the space station, the mechanical switches and computer screens do not seem to have changed since the first flight in 1966. The nations recently included in the space race reproduce antique Russian and American equipment with discouraging accuracy. When young professionals come to the aerospace industry, the level of equipment makes them either cry or laugh. Nothing kills the pleasure of working on a spaceship like driving in the spirit of washing machines from the 1960s. The existing work environment is as hopelessly outdated as the equipment

                      As for whether I am a “true” inventor, people can judge for themselves. Many people are credible with Facebook, as we know it today. I believe, that I’m one of them - and although I’m certainly not the only one, I believe that I have the right to proper recognition (no more than that) in the same way as other creators of FB. In the past, this admission was surprisingly hard to find, as semi-educated comments such as David clearly give.

                      The most intense meeting took place in a richly decorated, but dilapidated pre-revolutionary building near the center of Moscow. Poured vodka, sounded toasts - “To space! For America! ”- and Musk sat on 20 million and hoped that they would be enough for three ICBMs that could be remade for flight into space. Musk, heated with vodka, asked bluntly how much a ballistic missile would cost. The answer was: eight million each. Musk made a return offer: eight for two. “For a while they sat and looked at him,” Cantrell recalled. - And then they said something like: “Young man, no”. In addition, they hinted that he did not have that kind of money. ” At this point, Musk decided that the Russians were either not going to do business with him, or simply wanted to get as much as possible out of the millionaire who had enriched in dot-coms. He went out, slamming the door.

                      The "cosmic" stage in the life of Mask began at the age of 30 when he was expelled from PayPal. Even before this, at a party for top managers at PayPal in the late 90s and early 2000s, colleagues noticed that Ilon “sits and reads the mysterious Soviet textbook on rocket science, which is completely moldy and looks like it was bought on eBay, - said Kevin Harz, one of the first investors at PayPal. “He studied the book and talked openly about space travel and the possibility of changing the world.”

          2. NATIONAL VOTING - the term, even though it is considered to be identical to the term "referendum", but in the Federal Constitutional Law "On the Referendum of the Russian Federation" there is a "referendum", but the vote is not written there
          3. Putin:
          in his opinion, the amendments do not affect the fundamental foundations of the Constitution, which means that they can be approved by parliament with the help of constitutional laws. But, since they nevertheless significantly change the political system, it is necessary to vote citizens "and only make decisions based on its results" over the entire package of proposed amendments

          very nice to see how it will be organized

    Finally, they were puzzled by their Dragon.

    And they screwed up an unnecessary return of cargo - like the Mask, for what to carry from the ISS? For reuse all the more, it’s cheaper to make a new one, and to heat the old one.
    And reusability of use - which is also not needed because the service is ultimately more expensive than the new one, but no matter what the American taxpayers talk about.
    And composites - the truth is that the same difficulties may arise as on Federation Orel, as a result, a manned ship from a similar composite turned into a classic aluminum one.

      ----
      There is something to carry. There Europeans, Japanese made experimental mini-factories. For all kinds of electronics.
      In general, the ISS in the future should become a factory in orbit. Build new large modules, not cages. Then commercial interest will appear in her, and everything will spin around her. And the "trucks" should be reusable, of course.

        Well it is clear. Plus, you can return broken equipment or spacesuits. It’s cheaper to send them again after repair.

        And even if you don’t send it, the technique that has worked in space is in itself good food for new developments and ideas. If you drown, then all the data on the work say for two years, the degree of wear and tear, changes in equipment burn. If you return, then you can explore everything thoroughly.

        This post is more likely - based, Progress is the best, nothing else is needed, reusability is not needed, the results of research are pushed into the Union.
        As a result, once and suddenly, they make a ship like Mask.

          So it is - the return of the goods is not necessary, just unnecessary, there are no problems. The reusability of the spacecraft after the shuttle is simply insanity, another thing is the reusability of the launch vehicle, it is interesting. But first you need to get acquainted with the results of SpaceX, and then decide, not vice versa! There are suspicions that the economy is not beating in Ilon. In general, to supply the ISS there are 2 reliable and cheap spacecraft - Soyuz / Progress. They do not need a replacement until there is a passenger and cargo flow into orbit more than now every 6-8.
          Therefore, there is absolutely no need to repeat the CC on the ideology of the 60s. It would be better if the guys did something really useful.

    Uncles, do not hit the current .... It seemed to me that 2 tons of cargo is nothing for a truck? Well, if it were at least one-time, cheap, it’s not a pity. But 2 tons, is it a pivasik or something to throw there? A ton back. No, of course I understand that they say this is space, there, like grams there, that's all. But here 2020 and a truck, maybe a truck, such as a commercial one - "pizza delivery" or "home medicine." Yes, and composites already run in, what would they do reusable trucks? ... epoxy fiberglass fabric .... is this generally legal?
