Russia is considering the possibility of creating floating airfields

144

For further use in the Arctic zone, Russia is considering the possibility of creating floating airfields. The Nevskoye Design Bureau has already taken up this issue.


This is reported in the materials of the PKB, dedicated to the 90th anniversary of this organization and received at the disposal of the news agency TASS.

It says that such floating platforms will become centers that resolve issues of providing all spheres of activity of the Russian Federation and its partners in the Arctic zone. Now the bureau is carrying out a pre-design study of the constructive appearance of these unusual airfields.

The Nevsky PKB reported that such floating platforms are capable of providing aircraft with their runways in any weather in the harsh conditions of the Arctic. They can be used by transport, military and rescue aviation... They will serve as a basis for the development of Arctic gas fields, ensure the safe operation of the Northern Sea Route, and will also be used to solve the tasks set by the Russian Ministry of Defense.

The Nevsky Design Bureau is part of the United Shipbuilding Corporation. It created about 300 ships and vessels, including the flagships of the fleets of Russia, China and India.

      Russia is considering the possibility of creating floating airfields

      There is also a project of an aircraft carrier codenamed "Varan", presented by the Nevsky Design Bureau, which is one of the largest domestic developers of universal ships and the only designer of aircraft carriers and training complexes in Russia.
      Yesterday PKB celebrated the 90th anniversary of its foundation.




      According to the project, the "Varan" training complex should be an aircraft-carrying complex, characterized by a high degree of automation and the possibility of using robotic systems. It is expected to carry 24 multipurpose aircraft, six helicopters and up to 20 UAVs for various purposes on board.
      The ship's displacement is expected to be about 45 thousand tons, length - about 250 m, width - 65 m, draft at the structural waterline - 9 m. According to calculations, "Varan" can have a speed of up to 26 knots.

        They can be used by transport, military and rescue aircraft.

        After landing a transport plane, it (the plane) needs to be put somewhere.
        More cargo needs to be transported to another vessel.
        There should be berths and facilities for cargo transfer.
        What size should this "barge" be?

        For example, the IL-114 run is 550m.
        Takeoff run even more - 750 m.

        And this is a small plane.

        Good idea, but where will they build?
        There are no such shipyards in Russia.
        Not yet.

            But where they will fly after taking off is not very clear.
            Only helicopters will board the ships.
            If they can sit on the ice?
            There are more questions than answers.

          Alternatively, use a modular principle. Roughly speaking, several "barges" docked in a row.

              In 2017, as part of a deep modernization of the An-2, SibNIA developed a new all-composite light aircraft TVS-2DTS "Baikal". In July 2017, a prototype of the new aircraft made its first test flight [17]. Serial production of the Baikal aircraft should begin in 2021 at the Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant, and the Yakut airline Polar Airlines will become the first operator. [18]

                The TVS-2DTS "Baikal" aircraft, developed at the Novosibirsk SibNIA named after Chaplygin, will not be put into mass production; earlier its mass production was planned to begin in 2021 at the Ulan-Ude aircraft plant. The one-piece composite aircraft is not suitable for open storage in the North. Director of SibNIA Vladimir Barsuk told about this in an interview with Sibnet.ru

                  Yes, indeed - "As a result, the officials of the Ministry of Industry and Trade made a choice in favor of the development of a subsidiary of the Ural Civil Aviation Plant (UZGA). Baikal-Engineering LLC won a tender a year ago, and its light aircraft design has undergone significant changes compared to the An-2. First of all, the biplane will turn into a monoplane, and its capacity should increase to 12-14 passengers. works in conjunction with UEC-Klimov.

                  Apparently, the Ministry of Industry and Trade is waiting for a budget analogue of the Canadian DHC-6 Twin Otter. It is estimated that the demand for "Baikals" in the next five years may be at least 230 units in our country. The project is tentatively estimated at 4,5 billion rubles. Let's hope the plane lives up to its expectations. "

        250 meters for transport will not be enough, so "Varan" disappears. I think it will be a "Barge", perhaps several barges connected together, like ferry crossings ..

          Will not be. The operating cost will be prohibitive.
          In order to put a 200t (or at least 100) transporter on a barge, this must be a rigidly coupled platform with a length of 1500-3000m. if you leave such a platform at least in 3-point excitement, it will be blown apart. Those. for each landing / takeoff, docking / undocking will need to be done.
          An aerodrome on a Suzha and / or an amphibian will be orders of magnitude cheaper.

          possibly several barges connected together, like ferry crossings ..
          What happens to the landing gear of a standard, rather than specially reinforced, aircraft when crossing a junction between barges at speed? Especially loaded, at the beginning of braking or at the end of the takeoff run. That is, at a speed close to the separation speed.
          Even large barges in waves will move relative to each other: in height, inclination. With the corresponding formation of a runway bend or step / slide / pit. On the scale of the barges themselves, these would be minor displacements. But for an airplane, or rather hitting the landing gear when moving over irregularities, it can be very sensitive. And how is the head during ice drift? For the Arctic, though.

      Most likely, these will be pontoon modules with the possibility of heating the runway. The question is what will be the size of the pontoons, the most rational runway length, how the take-off and landing control will be organized, most likely there will be a separate floating control room module, the issue of energy supply. But in general, I think this will be a very successful solution, especially in the Arctic zone, permafrost, as it turned out to be not eternal, it becomes very problematic to build ground runways.

          Well, let's just say, within the coastal zone, they are not so eternal, and given the mass of all assembled pontoons in the runway, I think they are unlikely to be able to press or damage such a massive structure.

            When is it cheaper and more expedient to build a polar airfield on the coast?

            And the point, of course, is not the massiveness of the pontoons. And in the use of fairly thin-walled materials in their production. Which will not withstand a collision or growing into the ice.

              I would readily agree with you. Well, we in the army have experience of working with pontoon crossings, there are developments, there is something to start from. And to fence this whole vegetable garden, I think because of the permafrost, in recent years the thawing of this permafrost has begun to grow and it is becoming more and more difficult to calculate the planting of soil and cover during the construction of a land strip.

                Put the same pontoons on leveled ground and use them to make a cushion for the runway. Top cover with heating and moisture suction or hot air blowing. It's easier than fighting ice and ice movement. I think so.

                Drive piles 50 meters deep, entangle with cooling pipelines and close them from sunlight. And you will be happy.
                The Chinese successfully solved a similar problem during the construction of a railway through the Tibetan Highlands: a lot of large-diameter pipes were laid across the embankment under the canvas with an embankment on top. Than insulated the massive embankment heated by the sun from the alpine permafrost. Natural wind cooling also occurs through the pipes. Here's an example of how to solve the problem. And even without forced freezing.

            considering the mass of all the assembled pontoons in the runway, I think they are unlikely to be able to press or damage such a massive structure.
            Even the hull of icebreakers is made to jump upward when compressed by ice. So as not to be crushed like a nut. Despite the fact that the thickness of the skin of the icebreaker is very large. The pontoon will simply crush with ice. Regardless of their cyclopicity.

                Yes, many people are sure that this is an empty idea, and many are sure that it is not empty. Let's proceed from the fact that bases along the NSR are needed (since we undertake to defend it). The closer these bases are to the pilotage route, the better in terms of control and counteraction. We do not know what design solutions the PKB has. I think that we need to wait for the presentation of the finished project and, on this basis, draw conclusions about its viability or vice versa. For some reason I think that it will not be a floating barge but a stationary on supports (possibly using freezing). In general, to see you have to live - we'll wait and see.

              Good question, but what does the floating airfield have to do with it? What tasks can he solve? This piece will cost several times more than a conventional air base, while, if you look at the military designation, it lacks the main trump card of an aircraft carrier - mobility. What for?

              What do you mean why? Assimilation of budgetary funds to develop technologies that have no analogues in the world.

    The main purpose of polar aviation is the transportation of goods, there is no one else to carry there. The takeoff weight of the IL-76 is up to 190t, and it needs a takeoff run of 1500-2000m. Dreaming about two-kilometer aircraft carriers?
    I think we will meet with delusional and gigantic projects more than once. The IMF does not allow state revenue to be allowed into the economy, so the NWF is already increasing by more than 10%, when it was planned by 7%, and they need to spend the available money as stupidly and irrationally as possible, like bridges to Sakhalin and from there to Japan. In the established funds, under the ban on spending, there are already 596 billion dollars. Wait, it will get more interesting. Stock up on chupa chups, dreamers.

    Skeptics.
    Floating airfields were built back in the USSR in the 30s, on ice (now too). Once I read studies on the landing of heavy aircraft on them, calculations of bends, stresses, strength, etc. Are today's materials worse than past ice?
    By the way, all the arguments about a single platform such as one barge (aircraft carrier) are not true. In different countries, research was carried out on parking, takeoffs, landing of aircraft on floating flexible (type-setting, coupled) platforms (I read Japanese on pontoons and Soviet on ice), and so landing by pilots was recognized even safer than on the ground, due to deflection landing platforms - reducing accuracy requirements.

    A very promising idea, it's a pity that its presence was published in the media, you need to keep quiet about this.
    The concept of using aircraft carriers has not been canceled. Yes, today they have become vulnerable in their modern design, but who said that the very idea of ​​having an airfield in any part of the sea is outdated? ... There are pontoon bridges that have been used for a long time. What prevents from developing this idea to full-fledged naval bases built on a modular type is only the absence of the need for such. But these times are passing - ahead of the race for the Arctic. ... A modular airfield with decentralized control, unlike an aircraft carrier, will be extremely difficult to destroy with conventional weapons, it will only be possible to get into it by breaking through an air defense barrier, which is very expensive, however ... what consists of parts will be assembled again and will continue to function , and it will all cost three orders of magnitude cheaper than any aircraft carrier to build and the same amount of times cheaper to operate. Of course, such a platform will not have enough mobility, but the permanent presence at any point in the ocean will be even higher than that of an aircraft carrier group. And the higher the degree of automation, the more efficient the use will be. Undoubtedly, writing about such developments at the design stage in the media is sabotage ...

    A very promising idea, it's a pity that its presence was published in the media, you need to keep quiet about this.

    Most promising RAVEdid you want to say?
    Well, well, let's consider your most promising idea, which is called "on the fingers". so
    1. For which aircraft this floating airfield is going to be made.
    If for helicopters, then why? Isn't it easier to build such "heliports" on land?
    2. What will be the configuration of this heliport. An ordinary (classic) pontoon in appearance, or something similar from a distance to the now-lowered North Pole platform, which is built so that it cannot be squeezed by ice
    If this is a "classic" pontoon or several interconnected (as an option - a catamaran), then how to achieve the rigidity of the structure in ice conditions, in rough conditions (bad weather). How and with what engines to equip this heliport? Finally, the most important question: how many such heliports will be needed, taking into account the range of helicopters based on them. By the way, it's not superfluous to take into account the dimensions of such helicopters and not only ours.
    3. If this floating airfield is to be made for aircraft, then for which ones?
    For light ones that carry 5 tons of cargo? Is it worth the candle? The radius in comparison with the same IL-76 is smaller, the transported cargo is several times smaller.
    4. Okay. We decided on the type of aircraft. Let there be IL-76 and its foreign counterparts
    Further. At this floating airfield, it will be necessary to have not only a runway 2,5 km long, but the width should also be appropriate. About 40-50 meters. Further. In addition to the runway, taxiing is required. Even if not as wide as the runway, but still 20 meters wide, no less. You will need a "resting place" for the aircraft, since it is hardly possible to build such a lift that will lower and raise 50-70 ton aircraft from the hangar. And the height of the hangar itself must be at least 15 meters. Now let's try to determine the dimensions of such one "segment".

    Width, taking into account the width of the runway and taxiing and the distance between them, not less than 100-140 meters. Let the length of such a pontoon be, say, 200 meters. Height, if you have hangars - at least 20 meters. Is the industry capable of producing such a pontoon in a single block, 200 meters long, 140 meters wide and 20 meters high ???? I doubt it very much. And the main thing is where to do such a "monster".
    Further, well, glad. They built such a monoblock pontoon. Now, for takeoff and landing, at least 12 pontoons must be connected in a line. How to connect? Cable system or rigid hitch. Will it make itself felt. so-called "whip effect"? Further. than "fill" these pontoons. Takeoff and landing equipment is understandable. Further. Devices for parrying longitudinal and lateral heaving. It is necessary to install engine modules with a sickly engine power, because all this structure must be somehow controlled. I am not even talking about the amount of fuel that must be stored. As well as about the maximum number of aircraft that this "monster" is able to accept and store. Again the question. And how many such floating aerodromes do you need? And the main issue is the rigidity of the structure during waves.

    And you, dear III, call this a promising idea?
