In Russia, created a crash-resistant fuel system for helicopters

Russia's first crash-resistant fuel system (ASTS) for helicopter technology was developed by the Technodynamika holding. The first helicopter to receive this system will be the Ka-226T. This was reported by the press service of the holding.


The accident-proof fuel system developed by the holding prevents fuel leakage during emergency helicopter landings. The system includes specially designed soft fuel tanks that maintain integrity in emergency situations and special crash-resistant valves and fittings that prevent fuel leakage.

The performance of the accident-proof fuel system samples is confirmed by tests for discharge from a height of 15,2 meters. The design of the tanks passed the leak-free test. (...) can be used both on military and civilian helicopters

- said Igor Nasenkov, CEO of the Technodinamika holding, adding that this development will reduce the dependence on the supply of imported components of fuel systems.

As the press service explained, a working design documentation is being developed at the ASTS for Ka-226T helicopters. A prototype of the system to the manufacturer of the Ka-226T helicopters (Russian Helicopters) will be handed over for testing by the end of the year. In the future, it is planned to test and apply this system on other helicopters.

    Interestingly, had such systems not been installed on our helicopters before? Or were imported? hi

      Well, as it were: "Holding" Technodynamics "for the first time in Russia has developed an Alarm-resistant
      fuel system for helicopters, made of domestic materials using domestic designthat fully complies with Russian and international safety standards and requirements ..... "it is not known whether this holding company developed such a system outside the country and from imported components.

      On the Su-25, this "thing" has long been used. Apparently, it came to the turntables. One negative - the amount of fuel on board is reduced.

        On the SU-25, the tanks are rigid, filled with a porous sponge, which reduces the generation of explosive fuel vapors. And it protects exclusively from fire when ammunition gets in, but not from destruction in the event of an accident. Read the article carefully.

      So it is written ..

      This entire article is just “about nothing”! The author himself did not understand - where, from whom, he heard something about some know-how.
      The accident-proof fuel system developed by the holding prevents fuel leakage during emergency helicopter landings. The system includes specially designed soft fuel tanks that maintain integrity in emergency situations and special crash-resistant valves and fittings that prevent fuel leakage.

      All this has already existed for the past 50 years.
      You can simply write - The first bicycle in Russia was developed by the Technodynamics holding company.
      The meaning is the same.
