The dates for the launch of the Rokot-M conversion rocket without Ukrainian components have been announced

The Russian Rokot-M light-class conversion launch vehicle, created without the use of Ukrainian components, is returning to the international launch services market. The first launch is planned for the second half of 2022. This is stated on the website of Eurockot Launch Services GmbH.


The Rokot-M launch vehicle will resume launches in the second half of 2022

- said in a statement.

Eurockot Launch Services GmbH is a joint venture between the Ariane Group and the Khrunichev Center based in Bremen, Germany. Operator of Rokot-M missile launch services.

Rocket "Rokot" is a three-stage liquid-propellant launch vehicle of a light class, designed at the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center on the basis of the UR-100N UTTH (RS-18B) intercontinental ballistic missile as part of the conversion program. Allows to put into orbit up to 2150 kilograms of payload using the Breeze-KM upper stage. The first launch of "Rokot" took place from the Plesetsk cosmodrome on May 16, 2000. The last one is August 30, 2019.

Earlier it was reported that the Khrunichev Center is developing a Rokot-M missile with a Russian control system, which will replace the Rokot missile with a control system produced at the Ukrainian enterprise Khartron. The development was carried out as part of the import substitution program.

    Another would be that private traders were given licenses to create and launch theirs light rockets! Healthy competition in our space industry is needed as a stimulus for the development of the industry! And then people have laid out money, the rockets are almost ready, there are launch sites, but there is no permission from Roscosmos to launch rockets. ...

      The economy is so arranged in the Russian Federation that there are no solvent domestic customers and is not expected, and living on your orders is always more convenient than waiting for the gentleman from behind the hill.

        Eugene 1221 - in Voronezh, the company staked out a place for a private cosmodrome, they created a rocket, and suddenly, bam - Roskosmos suspended the license, and forbade the completion of the launch pad - we are strangling competition in the bud, cheap rockets are profitable for a private trader, and are dangerous for a bulky bureaucratic apparatus that feeds on from the country's space programs!

          Once (in the era of the USSR), at "Khartron" (Kharkov and Zaporozhye), amazing and unique systems for the military and peaceful space were created and produced ...

          And now ?

          STA? what kind of "rocket have you created"? What kind of fake stuffing? So far, only Kosmokurs has announced a license for space activities. Nobody stopped it with them.

      private traders will quickly transfer all leading specialists to their own staff.
      which actually will be a blessing for specialists, but for design bureaus it will most likely turn out tragically.
      this option is possible only with proper and effective state funding and saturation of young scientific personnel

        This just means that the design bureau will go to private traders, removing a bunch of officials from its withers. And what is bad about this for rocketry?

          only one thing - that a strategically important industry is getting out of the direct control of the state
          and all that remains is to rely on the invisible hand of the market

            No, no, no !!! I'm not talking about the ominous hand of the market. We have seen enough of this. I'm talking about fair competition. The state should not let go of such a resource in any case, but even giving licensing to Roskosmos is overkill and sabotage !!!

                      This is yes. We will not talk about human qualities, but as a professional auditor Mehlis was impeccable. To send to the effective managers a photo of Mehlis as a reminder of the frailty of life and the transience of life.

            And how successfully does the state control this strategically important industry?
            Was it checked to the point that there is already nothing to remove heavy PNs?
            The proton has gone into oblivion, the Angara will be at the LKI for at least two more years.
            There is no talk at all about super heavyness. There is not even his concept.
            There are no speakers in the middle class. Everything is in projects and dreams. Either Soyuz-5 ... Or Amur-LNG ... Either all together in the conditions of a regularly repeated sequestration of the space budget.
            Either kerosene, or methane ... Or maybe we will swing at hydrogen, at our William, do you understand, Shakespeare?
            In fact, there is only one carrier flying in Russia today - Soyuz-2. The very same royal "seven". Conditional middle peasant. Which only with RB somehow pulls on the target necessary PN.
            Who needs this kind of control?
            China and the United States are not afraid to transfer part of their services in near space to private hands. There are already 19 private companies in the PRC alone.
            And private owner Musk last year bypassed the launch of the entire strategically important industry in Russia with its state control.

      I don’t want to sound impolite, but we have private traders who have licenses for production and modernization, and for launches. There were launches. You just need to delve into the topic before posting, and it will become clear that not everything is as simple as it seems at first.

        The list of Russian so-called private companies totals less than a dozen. Existing on paper only. For the real deeds behind the soul of these companies are 0 point, 0 tenths. There is nothing in the gland. There are only dreams and fantasies.
        And what were these launches? Start of S7 Space in 2017? So he was, firstly, unsuccessful. And secondly, not from the MS, but from Baikonur. Today S7 Space is in flight, incurring only losses associated with the costs of maintaining the pants, that is, the MS. And waits for the weather by the sea. The same Soyuz-7. Based on Soyuz-5, which does not exist and it is not known when it will be.

          Are you sure you read the question? I didn’t say anything about the success of private space programs.
          The question, to which I answered, stood like this: "Still, private owners would have been given licenses to create and launch their light rockets." Those. I said that it is also possible to obtain a license for private traders. Only. Where did I go wrong? The fact that our business is not yet pulling these programs is a completely different topic.

              It is OK, it happens. In fact, we really have few private corporations with capacities comparable to McDonnell Douglas, GD or GE. S7 is just the first such company to take huge risks with poor payback. Perhaps over time we will also have private giants capable of creating and launching spaceships, if they are not strangled by all sorts of svarogs. I think that you yourself can see very well that although we, both Russia and the United States, are capitalist countries, we have completely different philosophical views on the organization of life. And from them, these views, "jump" in different ways and its results.

      Why in the media space? They just assembled the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle with the Fregat upper stage and a cluster of spacecraft from different countries:



      There are four days left before the launch.

      Vostochny is also assembling a space warhead of 38 OneWeb satellites.



      Preparations are underway for new launches. There will be a lot of them this year.
