Russia is developing a system for docking of the Orel spacecraft with objects in circumlunar orbit

The Research Institute of Precision Instruments (part of the Russian Space Systems holding) has begun to develop a universal system designed for docking various spacecraft in near-earth and lunar orbits. According to the plan, this system will be equipped with a version of the promising Orel spacecraft, which is being developed by RSC Energia, primarily for flights into deep space.


By the way, given that the system is primarily created to function far beyond the Earth's orbit, in many respects it will differ from those currently used on the ISS. In particular, it will receive high protection from the effects of radiation, will have smaller dimensions, weight and energy consumption. In addition, according to Sergei Medvedev, chief designer of the Research Institute of TP, the new development will be distinguished by increased accuracy in measuring the motion parameters.

The terms of reference for the creation of the aforementioned system were developed by RSC Energia. According to the press service of the RKS holding, specialists from the Research Institute of Precision Instruments have already started making a prototype.

It should be noted that NII TP has been manufacturing such systems for many years. For example, Kurs-NA, which is currently in operation on the ISS, has also been developed by specialists from this research institute.

Regarding the future of the Russian reusable spacecraft "Eagle", it, in contrast to the outwardly similar Crew Dragon from SpaceX, is developed primarily for the delivery of astronauts outside the Earth orbit. In particular, to the moon. According to the plans of "Roskosmos", the domestic device will be able to go on a manned mission to a natural satellite of the Earth in 2029.

    Well, yes, plus three to five years of error, what's the difference negative In Russia, someone is responsible for something, or to promise, to take money, spend, curtail the program, then start another similar one from scratch, hang noodles on the ears, and curtail this program .... WHERE THE RESULTS ??? it's time to start executions with confiscation, truly, Joseph Vissarionovich is not enough at the helm of the country ...

      What kind of Russian RESULTS in general can we talk about in terms of the lunar theme?
      After you lost your super-heavy project?
      Does anyone imagine at least in general outline the four-start scheme on the "Angara"?
      What, where, in what sequence, with what interval will it be launched?
      It would be better if they continued to suck on the cosmic kinoopupey.

        Certainly. At RSC Energia, they have already laid out everything in detail on the shelves.

          slipped, let's first drop at least next year (instead of the promised one) at least a piece of metal on the moon. Then we will have fun with pictures.
          We have already seen how everything is laid out on the shelves at RKK Energia. Yesterday's "successful" flight of "Perseus" is an illustrative example of this.
          But my question was addressed to a certain segment of the audience. Namely - cheers for patriots.
          Do any of them visualize the four-start scheme? I doubt. Singing the praises of "Angara" is easier than thinking a little.

            You were told - RKK has already explained everything a long time ago, and here on the topvar there was a detailed scheme.

      What comment is "blown away by the wind"? Everything is in place. Don't be creative. The new site engine displays them differently.

      It's not good to delete comments for no reason. The reason is usually given in the red card notice. They hit me with 6 of them. Referred to profanity, although directly obscene expressions were never used hi

    for docking the spacecraft with objects in orbit

    somehow frivolous
    No, so
    for docking and taking control of objects in orbit

    Dragon has been flying for a long time (it will soon fly with a Russian cosmonaut), the lunar Orion is docked with the SLS at the Kennedy Center and is ready for flight, and the RK is developing everything ...

    You can endlessly watch how the fire burns, how the water flows and how Roscosmos develops, plans and promises.

    The Naval Zionists see nothing. They just need to throw more dirt.
    For them, Rogozin is in itself like incense for the undead (they remember his book, with vivid passages about Zionists and illegal migrants).
    And if Roskosmos (RKK) also has successful launches one by one, the Zionists-navalists are generally torn apart by the British flag in an intimate place.

    We must not forget that we have a joint lunar program with China.

      It would sound better - "China is with us." However, it is good that in addition to everything that our stores from China are littered with, the topic of buying Chinese rocketry is not yet worth it. I am glad that
      By the way, given that the system is primarily created for functioning far beyond the Earth's orbit, in many respects it will differ from those currently used on the ISS. In particular, it will receive high protection against radiation exposure.
      Where to go to the moon without protection from radiation, we are not Americans 50 years ago ...
