NPO Saturn enters the mass production of small-sized engines for UAVs



NPO Saturn and Raduga GosMKB named after A.Ya. Bereznyak signed a contract completing the formation of the NPO Saturn production program before 2015 for serial deliveries of engines for unmanned aerial vehicles. The term of the contract - 2013-2015 years.

The first serial supplies of engines for drones for the Raduga GosMKB them. AND I. Bereznyak "NPO Saturn began in 2008 year. The volume of the first contract for the supply of 2008-2010 years was less than 1 billion rubles. Within the framework of the first contract, not only the mass production of small-sized engines at NPO Saturn was tested, but also cooperation with Russian suppliers of purchased components and blanks.

The further program of serial deliveries of small-sized engines for JSC "Raduga" GUSMKB named after A.Ya. Bereznyak "was divided into the 2 contract. The first of these was concluded in the 2011 year with the implementation period of 2011-2015. The negotiation of the terms of the second contract was completed in the second quarter of 2013 of the year and ended with the signing in July of 2013 of the year.

The total amount of two contracts concluded between NPO Saturn and JSC GosMCB Raduga for the supply of engines for UAVs from 2013 to 2015 exceeded 4 billion rubles. Relative to production volumes in 2010-2012, the 2013-2015 production program has increased 3,5 times.

Such a significant increase in supply volumes was possible due to the implementation of the import substitution program and a set of measures for the preparation of production. NPO Saturn in the framework of the Federal Target Program “Development of the Military-Industrial Complex of the Russian Federation” carries out preparatory work, including the construction of new production buildings and the introduction of high-performance equipment, recruitment and training of qualified production and engineering personnel.

In order to consolidate the development and serial production of engines for UAVs, the management of enterprises decided to merge OAO NPO Saturn and OAO OMKB Omsk, which is also a developer and manufacturer of engines for UAVs. There has always been close cooperation between enterprises in the area of ​​industrial cooperation in the manufacture of parts and assembly units, the scale of which will increase significantly after the merger, and a program to consolidate the procurement of components, materials and blanks is also being implemented.

Formed portfolio of orders and implementation of measures of the Federal Target Program “Development of the defense industry complex of the Russian Federation” derive NPO Saturn to mass production of engines for UAVs, comparable to the scale of production that existed before the collapse of the USSR.

// This is how "without noise and dust" goes the process in the direction of drones, in which we, unfortunately, are well behind.

        And in my opinion, military technologies very often go to the citizen, for example: Saiga, Ural-4320, Diesel B2 and B6 are used in civilian power plants, and were developed for tanks. Tu-104 and Tu-114 aircraft converted bombers. Internet in the end. And the list goes on and on.

      I don’t know how much the picture was related to the article, but on it the turbojet engine-50 created back in the last century by the OMKB. According to Wiki, NPO Saturn, together with the OMKB, has been working since 2000 to restore production (to replace the P95-300 engines, they were made in Ukraine for the X-55) and repair the “product 36”. In particular, in large-scale production Modifications of the TRDD-50 base model, the TRDD-50A and TRDD-50AT engines, have been launched. At the same OMKB, they developed and launched the production of another modification - the TRDD-50B engine ("Product 37"). " The following characteristics are shown on Wik
      Technical data TRDD-50AT:

      Maximum traction - 450 kgf.
      The specific fuel consumption at maximum mode is 0,71 kg / kgf * h.
      Diameter - 330 mm.
      Length - 850 mm.
      Dry weight - 82 kg.
      The oil used is VT-301.
      The fuel used is T-1 (aviation kerosene), T-6, T-10 (decylin), TS-1, RT.

    It is not necessary to create your own glider for each engine and vice versa. If there is a small high-torque engine with low weight, you can create several different planes (drones) under it.

    It would be interesting to see the technical characteristics, as well as the cost of these engines.
    For example, TurboMekhi has a TVD power of about 75 hp, which costs about 12 dollars .. with a motor resource of about 000 hours. This engine is placed on ultra-light helicopters.

      for small aircraft it will also be useful

      Two of these engines can be put on a light aircraft with a takeoff weight of about 4000 kg with a fuel supply of 1000 kg and a commercial load of 1000 kg (10-12 passengers), it (the aircraft) can fly about 1500 km at a speed of 600-700 km / h. This is an approximate calculation, offhand.

        In the 1990s he participated in one project.
        The project died due to the lack of an accessible engine with approximately such parameters. The glider rotted on the roof of the garage where they worked.

        Two to Israel and there work on their favorite profile.
        Recently, I saw one in a program from an exhibition of UAVs.

            Well, it’s not a zero to start ... The problem with the lag in the absence of light-engine aviation in Russia. Probably, they haven’t designed piston engines for airplanes for about 60 years already, completed the M-14 and M-62, but no more ... When it came to the design of UAVs, it turned out that there were no engines for them, only foreign ones ... That’s what they’ll do on the basis of rocket engines ... It’s true I don’t know how they will succeed, because it’s actually a single-use rocket, so they most likely designed it to work for a couple of hours, and there it will burn itself along with the rocket, hence the materials are simpler and tolerances ...

              The development \ production of turbojet engines in the segment of small thrust classes "Akhhelesov's heel" of the still Soviet aircraft industry, the fact is that it happened historically, we went along the path of cooling the turbine working areas (blades in the above privacy), this type of technology gives a relative reduction in the cost of the sample cost in that including the “temporary” component of the production cycle, however, there is a certain restriction on the dimensions (not less than the def.) of the product. Therefore, for small turbojet engines we are forced to use combustion cycles (with traction modes close to MAX) that do not uniformly strain (the same blade) in terms of area, as a result, the process of heat transfer from a warmer zone to a less heated one and then to a “special” heat carrier takes place, it can be simplified to say that such loading occurs due to the enrichment of the combustible mixture (hence smoky traces and increased consumption), the inevitable minus of the technology of “cooled zones” is low product resource. The West went along the path of synthesizing single-crystal structures of high thermal capacity i.e. "supermaterial" (both in price and in quality) Based on the foregoing, it must be understood that the design of the turbofan engine-50 is limiting, optimized for operation in a narrow range of thrusts, with a small resource. Choosing it as a prototype UAV engine is a necessary measure, since such an engine is needed yesterday. Ideally, we need two types of turbojet engines: 1st for shock UAVs, which is based on the technology of "cooled zones" because. such devices will have to have low cost (because they are essentially consumables) .2nd for “patrol-shock” UAVs based on “supermaterial” (since their main task is to have the greatest possible resource and cost for the maximum cost of operating costs) and here is the exit one license purchase.

                Our heat-resistant technologies rested on their high cost and low gross demand in the early 1970s. Well, it’s unnecessary in their millions of thousands of tons per year.
                In mid-1980, the development of plasma technologies and research was greatly reduced (without them, obtaining heat-resistant materials without the use of alkaline earth is incredibly expensive, or even impossible).
                In the early 1990s, the research institute of heat-resistant materials was completely destroyed.
                So, small-sized and fairly economical fuel injection engines in Russia will not be available soon.
                Although there is a group of amateur designers trying to blind, in the literal sense of the word, the fuel injection pump is almost made of clay. Everything again rests on the availability of heat-resistant ceramics.

      The more the more economical.
      The thermodynamics of a fuel injection pump is tightly coupled with specific power.
      The greater the power, the lower the specific gravity of iron.

    The news is pleasant, but I consider it incomplete. I’m not an engine operator, but for each device I have my own engine, especially this is an aircraft where the payload is counted in grams! A certain engine for a certain model is not a truck fleet or a truck tractor for different load models. If something is done, it can do so under the previously promised drones with a total weight of 1 and 5 tons. Is that so.
