In Voronezh, the creation of engines for the Angara LV has been completed

24

The Voronezh Design Bureau of Chemical Automation (KBKhA) completed the development of the RD0124A rocket engine

The company has successfully conducted the latest fire test of the oxygen-kerosene rocket engine under the program of interdepartmental tests. This was reported in the press service of KBKHA.

Interdepartmental tests, in essence, represent the delivery of a new liquid-propellant rocket engine (LRE) to a state commission. It includes representatives of the main customer, relevant ministries, departments and organizations in the industry, the agency’s source said. Since July 16, there have been three engine fire tests for this program. Having worked without remarks on the stand for the time, RD0124A fully confirmed the required characteristics set by the technical requirements for its development.

RD0124A is fully developed and manufactured at KBXA. It is intended for use as part of the universal missile module URM-2 of the Angara space launch vehicle family developed by Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center. Successful interagency testing of the RD0124A engine opens up a direct path to its flight design tests as part of the 2014 rocket.

KBKHA is one of the world leaders in the creation of LRE for carriers of defense, scientific and economic purposes. Over the years, engines for the Vostok, Voskhod, Molniya, Energiya, Soyuz, and Proton rockets were created here.

    The main thing is that they should not be sold to other countries, or just the other day only our Duma thought of what we are selling to the RD States, and they are putting military satellites into orbit with their help. hi
    Well, "Angara" would be launched as soon as possible, otherwise how many deadlines are already being postponed ...

      Since the Americans could not lick them, the technological level of the US industry for this is not high enough. As Steve Jobs said when asked: why iPhones are made in China, and not in the United States.

        So the Americans couldn’t lick them

        Why would the Americans "lick" them if Russia was selling engines at a price that did not cover their production?
        Billions of losses for Russia cost the delivery to America of Russian rocket engines. Auditors of the Audit Chamber, who conducted an audit of NPO Energomash OJSC, established that Russian RD-180 rocket engines for Atlas 5 American launch vehicles were sold for half the cost of their production

            Whatever one may say, there is nothing to be proud of. They give the engines for a part of the price, the rollback remains there. "who protects what, he has."

              Anyway, nothing to be proud of.
              Engines are given for a fraction of the price, the rollback remains there. "who protects what, he has."

            Hello, Senior Citizen!
            Yet again, pah-pah-pah, so as not to jinx it, but still:
            If the rocket suddenly doesn’t take off,
            then the above emergency
            will smoothly turn into a national holiday.

    The pressure in the combustion chamber is more than twice as high ... what is his real thrust ?! Let it be a truly reliable engine. How I hope so! Soon, very soon, we will need to launch combat platforms into space. And you have to do it almost in a ballistic mode, problems with computer correction will increase as I develop, I won’t tell anyone wink electronic warfare systems. We can cope, we can forget about their missile defense.

      difference between RD0124A and RD0124.


      appointment
      LRE RD0124 (14D23)
      Use as part of the third stage of the Soyuz-2-1b launch vehicle for launching spacecraft into orbit from the Russian cosmodromes, the Soyuz-ST-B launch vehicle for the Kourou cosmodrome (France), as well as as part of the second stage of the launch vehicle Soyuz-2-1v from Russian cosmodromes.
      LRE RD0124A
      Use as part of the second or third stage of carrier rockets of the Angara family for launching light, medium and heavy spacecraft into orbit from Russian cosmodromes.
      The RD0124A engine is being developed on the basis of the RD0124 (14D23), having a number of design differences in terms of fuel selection for controlling the deviation of the compressor station, ensuring the boost of the tanks, and also has an increased flight time.
      The engines are designed according to the scheme with the afterburning of the oxidizing generator gas; they provide highly reliable operation due to the relatively low temperature of the generator gas. They have the maximum achievable energy characteristics for motors of this class. For the launch vehicle, the engine provides pressurization of the "O" and "G" tanks with helium heated in heat exchangers and control of the launch vehicle in flight along the pitch, yaw and roll channels due to the deflection of the chambers.

    RD0124A for the Angara. The parameters are the same, but the operating time is 500 s and the possibility of double switching on.

    Hydrogen + Oxygen = this will be environmentally friendly. But compared to heptyl, kerosene is certainly a lesser evil.

      Yes, but in terms of specific gravity fluorine + hydrogen = good good good

    Without emergency launches "Angare" and further development of this class of launch vehicles, well, rewards for those who worked on the project !!! soldier
