In Voronezh, firing tests of the new engine for the Angara-A5 launch vehicle



The first series of fire tests of the oxygen-hydrogen rocket engine RD0146D was successfully carried out in the Voronezh Design Bureau of Chemical Automation / KBXA /. About this correspondent. ITAR-TASS was informed today by the head of the press service of the company, Alexander Kazhikin.

The complex of works with the engine is carried out in accordance with the schedule for the creation of an oxygen-hydrogen accelerating unit for the new heavy launch vehicle Angara-A5. On the experimental base of the enterprise, 68 fire tests were carried out on engines of this family, including six using liquid methane as combustible. The total engine running time is more than 3 thousand 600 seconds.

The beginning of the development of the engine РД0146Д according to the program of final testing became possible after the successful completion of the specifying tests. This allowed KBKHA to start making units of the standard design, which will be used for testing as part of the carrier rocket in space, the company representative said.

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

    There’s nothing to comment on!
    How many people write, write, experience, test and hope, but things are still there! Only the name has changed - now "Angara-A5"

      A5 is the heavy system index. Which is assembled from several overclocking modules. In fact, work on the Angara project is proceeding at a rather healthy pace. I think by the end of next year they will test the entire rocket in a light version.

        Just rowing at a tremendous pace.
        By the Decree of the President of the Russian Federation of January 06.01.95, 26, “On the Development of the Angara CRC.” work on the creation of the Angara missile system is defined as work of special national importance. In March, an order was issued by the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation on this complex. On August 1995, 2005, a Decree of the Government of the Russian Federation was issued, which determined the stage-by-stage development of the Angara complex, and approved the general schedule for the creation of the complex, the volumes of its financing, as well as the cooperation of co-executors. The decision determined the start of flight tests of the complex - XNUMX

        Especially the last paragraph shows how well the frail pace gained!

          The project has been revised. It was not originally conceived as a modular, but as a heavy carrier. In fact, the complex began to be embodied in iron only in 2007 - the first tests.

            So I say - everything is being realized and being realized, everything is being tested and there is no end to the edge. And the most important thing is that there is no one to recognize that the program has failed. Only the news is sent to the press, here we are .......... Where is the money Zin ?

    The main thing is to create conditions for the maximum use of such technologies in our own country and completely exclude the possibility of their use by our "friends". IMHO
