Ultralight rocket for “budget” launches to appear in Russia


Russian scientists are engaged in the creation of a space rocket that is superior in its parameters to similar developments of competitors. Work is planned to be completed by 2025. The estimated cost of the project is 2,5 billion rubles, which according to the calculations of the creators should pay off in 12 launches.


About this to the newspaper "Izvestia" рассказал VNH-Energo employee Pavel Chernyshev.

The device is a reusable ultralight rocket designed to deliver micro- and nanosatellites to the Earth’s 200-kilometer orbit. The main goal set by the developers is the record low cost of space cargo delivery. Presumably, it will amount to 12 thousand dollars per kilogram of payload. The closest competitor to the Russian spacecraft, the Elektron rocket from the American company Rocket Lab, costs twice as much to deliver a kilogram of space cargo.

Russian developers plan to achieve this result through the use of a single-stage carrier design and an innovative configuration of the engine nozzle that can operate in any mode at different heights. If you change the altitude of the rocket, it will not lose traction.

    Interesting, good luck in your work!

        They want to say that a little more and we will become the most advanced in all key areas .. but the problem is that they have been talking about this for so long .. and our leadership is farther from us and will soon compete with African countries ..

        This is open data.

        As for the news, I want to express my opinion - it won’t take off as long as it is possible to use decommissioned ICBMs.

        There are various nozzle designs that have a height-adjustable degree of expansion. Musk (and not only him, but also the same Rocket Lab, which are discussed in the article, and others), of course, studied them. We came to the conclusion that it’s not worth it.

              The return steps were drawn from the moment the word "astronautics" appeared. Before Musk, for some reason, they thought that it was just “not worth it," and now when the nosebleed must be proved the postulate "America - Uberales" suddenly it became cheaper. I believe weakly in such miracles of science and economics. But only time will judge us. By the way, you didn’t answer what’s happening with the “primitive Russian taxiways”, innovations do not allow you to assemble an analogue or just “the machine gun of the wrong system”?

                The engine on the circuit with full gasification of components (such as Raptor) in the USSR was supposed to be RD-270, but they could not bring it to working capacity.

        For me, Michael, it would be better not to give out such announcements at all, but to report on the fact. I’m just tired of the fact that from around every corner certain "designers" stick out, and most likely loud-voiced and unfounded successful top managers of corporations and their henchmen, who simply overwhelmed everyone with their promises. Less words - more deeds.

        PS And everything is like a carbon copy after 24-25 years. It’s as if something new will appear there as if by magic. This is the strangest thing.

      It depends on what result you are waiting for ...

      The United States completed 21 launches in 2019. Russia completed 22 launches from its spaceports, and another 3 Soyuz rockets were sent into space from the Kourou spaceport in French Guiana.

      Total 25 launches of our launch vehicles.
      Mask has more commercial launches. Yes. By the number of launches in the interests of commercial customers, SpaceX is really ahead of Roscosmos. But, in terms of the number of customers themselves, they are very far behind. Roscosmos just on July 5 launched into space the Soyuz 2.1b launch vehicle on board which there were 33 devices at once, customers from different countries (including the USA, by the way). One rocket fulfilled contracts with customers from the USA, Germany. Finland, Israel, Czech Republic, Sweden, Estonia, Ecuador, Great Britain, France and Thailand.

      In total, Roscosmos fulfilled about 20 contracts of foreign customers, which is about 2 times more than the United States.

Obviously, the financial aspects they are still outweighed for launches from the previous places of launching into orbit, while work is being carried out (slowly and with a corruption component, but is underway) and on "spare" sites. So far, it has been possible to negotiate with Kazakhstan, but what will happen in the future? For this, the East is building plans for both the Unions and the Angara ...

            What are you talking about? I am not against the Union, I am for the fact that if people promise something, they get huge budget money for this, then it would not hurt to give an ANSWER. Six years ago, they took money not for the Soyuz, but for the Angara and so on and so forth ... RESULT where? Show it. That is the question, they promised the result in 2020, is it in the yard, will there be a report? Or do you have enough new “promises” to “miracle rockets” in the next six years

              The Angara rocket is created with money from the Ministry of Defense. Only at the end of last year, the Ministry of Defense stopped using the Baikonur cosmodrome and the Proton-M rocket to launch its spacecraft. All of their new heavy spacecraft fly from Plesetsk to the A5.

              A new heavy carrier is being prepared at the factory for shipment to this spaceport:



              The "civilian" A5 rocket, according to the federal program, flies in 2023, after the Amur missile defense complex was built for it as part of the second stage at Vostochny.

          At the Vostochny Cosmodrome, only ONE launch complex is currently operating - for the Soyuz-2 rocket. The universal launch complex of the Angara rocket is only under construction and will be ready by the year 2023.

          Quote: svp67
          Why, they decided not to use the start on Vostochny, which was rebuilt for Soyuz, by loading other launch sites with launches, but didn’t build a full-fledged launch for Angara?


          There are five missiles in the VIK of the Vostochny cosmodrome today, three of which are already assembled and ready for launch. The launch company at the launch site begins in April, when the spacecraft is ready for the customer. For more intensive use of the cosmodrome, it is still necessary to build additional facilities for the preparation of spacecraft, for example, to install a large-volume thermo-pressure chamber, the same as in Baikonur, and to complete residential building complexes for cosmodrome workers in the city of Tsiolkovsky. The construction of a "full launch" for the Angara launch vehicle began last year.

              At the moment, from Vostochny, from the launch pad C1, remote sensing devices weighing up to one and a half tons of VNIIEM Corporation are launched into solar-synchronous orbits, because they have a high degree of factory readiness and commercial MCAs in cluster launches. Starting this year, OneWeb will launch cluster launches - 4 launches.

              Plesetsk is a military spaceport from which the apparatus of the Ministry of Defense is launched.

              Spacecraft launches for the period from April 2016 to 2019:

              East: 1 launcher (1 carrier type) - 5 missile launches, 7 spacecraft and 67 small spacecraft successfully launched.
              Plesetsk: 3 launchers (2 types of carriers) - 21 missile launches of which 3 commercial spacecraft, other military launches, the number of military spacecraft launched for obvious reasons I will not say.

              At the beginning of the year in 2020, it was planned to carry out five launches of the Soyuz-2.1b rocket from the Vostochny cosmodrome, exactly as many missiles were delivered to the cosmodrome - four for OneWeb and one cluster with federal payload - Meteor-M spacecraft No. 2-3 + commercial ICA. This month, it was decided to conduct additional tests of the Meteor-M spacecraft No. 2-3 - earlier it was planned to be launched by the end of this year, respectively, its launch moved to the beginning of 2021. OneWeb also announced a reduction in launches of their spacecraft this year, most likely they cannot cope with their release in the right amount. Therefore, instead of four launches from Vostochny, they will have only three. The first of them is in early May.



              In total, they plan to launch 108 spacecraft from Vostochny.

New remote sensing satellites, AMS "Luna-25" and other spacecraft, the launch of which is on Vostochny on Soyuz-2, are still in production.

          MOSCOW, Feb 7 - RIA News. Communications satellites of the British company OneWeb, launched by the Russian Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle from the Baikonur cosmodrome, have been put into orbit, Roscosmos reported.
          "Confirmation has been received of the successful separation of all 34 OneWeb communication satellites from the Frigate booster block! They are placed in target orbits.", - says the post of the state corporation on Twitter.

    Well, if you compete with Beck, then there are three critical vulnerabilities of the project:

    1) Wallop site - that is, the main global customer (USA) will now be able to display satellites from its territory. First launch this year.


    2) Acceleration block - Photon support platform. 170kg can be thrown to the moon. You can breed cubes into fundamentally different orbits. You can still have a lot of things. Launch in April. This is a unique offer in the light class now.


    3) Significant reduction in cost - due to reyuza. Two modified atmospheric entrances have already been completed. There will be another 1 or 2 simulations with extended telemetry. The launch of the rocket refined for the return is optimistic in the fall of 2020, but this is the Rocketlab, they like to move the deadlines. In any case, it will most likely be a No. 2 rocket with a reuse. Beck is waiting up to 5 repeated use booster kit improvements to the first stage.


    By the way - while Mask has a confirmed record, there are 4 reuses of one level. The main candidate for the 5th launch - sat by the platform. Wrong positioning information.

    And the projects were resurrected from Soviet palaces of pioneers - aircraft modeling circles.

    The Chinese have copied the Falcon-9 landing system. Test your rocket.
    The same must be done by Roscosmos.
    The system is simple and reliable.

      Do you also use "product number 2" repeatedly? laughing

      today we have a "simple and reliable system," and the delivery of non-ferrous metal covers all costs laughing

      Let the Chinese test and let Israel also begin, but the main thing for us is to “throw out” all these “effective” ones from the leadership of the aerospace industry. And return real engineers and designers to the leadership of the industry.

    Something has not been seen for a long time on the site of "comrade" under the nickname slipped. Dismissed from Rosospilkosmos.

    If you're talking about me, don’t you remind me where I drowned for Roskosmos? )))

    Russian scientists urgently need to invent a time machine so that we all finally see it not on paper!

    You’re there at least, build something besides the trampoline center, otherwise once every three days the news goes. Or somewhere I didn’t see New Vasyuki in the title of the article?

    Yeah, that means a reusable rocket is profitable, otherwise I began to worry about the Mask. wink

      Their last launch, the first stage gently and smoothly landed ... in the water 1-20 meters from the spaceport ship.
      Strong side winds over the ocean intervened.
      It would be a concrete pavement of an airfield — it would be a village.
      But no one was upset: this was the fourth missile flight. She paid for herself with her head.

    An Ash for 12 launches pays off! How much did the projects have in 25 years? Energy flew 2 times, Angara also 2. Moreover, we developed a line of rockets, from light to heavy. How much money was thrown away, we don’t have to put into space the task rocket development again.

    As long as Putin is in power, Russia will never have its own 100% aircraft, let alone missiles. High technology is not available to the Putin regime. His path to copy and upgrade.
    Putin created the economy of the world gas station, and high technology is not accessible to his environment.

    Reusable single-stage rocket.
    And how does it all from a 200-km altitude return to Earth back?
