The head of the Ukrainian Space Agency reiterated the interest of Americans in the joint development of rocket engines

The US side is interested in the development of rocket engines jointly with the State Space Agency of Ukraine (SCAU), reports UNIAN statement of the head of the State Aircraft Administration of Ukraine Lubomir Sabadosh.

The head of the Ukrainian Space Agency reiterated the interest of Americans in the joint development of rocket engines

“We offered our capabilities regarding the implementation of a joint development for the production of a liquid engine, which is currently being purchased in the Russian Federation. Our partners understand that this task is rather difficult, but we can cope with it, and the discussion will be held at the level of professional specialists, ”said Sabadosh.

According to him, “during the negotiations, the parties should discuss the timing of development, the conduct of test trials, as well as the amount of funding.”

"The following information was provided by US specialists:" We are interested in having alternative engine suppliers. We understand that this project cannot be implemented tomorrow. " The Ukrainian side conveyed the position of Yuzhnoye Design Bureau regarding the conduct of negotiations and discussion of the conditions on which the cooperation will be built, cost, time, ”said Sabadosh.

He also said that the next meeting with the Americans will be held in Kiev in November.

Recall that the head of the State Air Administration of Ukraine not for the first time declares plans to jointly develop an engine and a launch vehicle, but so far no practical steps have been made in this direction.

      The United States will be interested, at times very much, but buy Russian engines. This is the policy to show interest in order to bring down the price. Svidomye as children)) _)

        KB "Yuzhnoye" at the suggestion of NASA has begun to develop a new breakthrough TRAMPOLINE. To strengthen and acquire new properties, the trampoline will be lubricated with lard. This will give the product new properties and increase its competitiveness in the global market. So somehow! And nothing else ... fool stop hi

      We offered our opportunities regarding the implementation of a joint development for the production of a liquid engine, which is currently purchased in the Russian Federation.

      They want Ukraine to assemble the same engines for staff, but cheaper.
      But will it work out ?! Are metals and alloys used in the manufacture of engines in Russia in Ukraine?!
      Or is there a complete documentation for the engines ?!
      I am however lagging around ...

      With such a well-fed mug, no worse than Poroshenko’s, you can only make such statements, because to create an engine you still need heads and hands and, most importantly, thousands and thousands of tests of each tube and valve and the entire engine.

      Falcon 9, yes. It fell and exploded, NASA's commission found out that it was precisely because of the defective AJ-26 engines (Ukrainian modification of the Soviet NK-33 engine) developed by the Yuzhnoye design bureau. Then NASA complained that the losses amounted to $ 300 million. Want to try again? Good luck. Only now Ukrainians will certainly assemble the engine from shit and sticks flies and butterflies, judging by the general degradation of Ukrainian industry.

      Antares changes Ukrainian engines to Russian
      (news of October 2014)

      After an accident with Antares carrier, its manufacturer - the American company Orbital Sciences Corporation - will replace the supplier of mid-flight rocket engines. According to a senior source in Roscosmos, Orbital has held a tender among manufacturers of engines for Antares carriers, which will be produced from 2017.

      “The winner in the tender was the RD-193 engine of the Khimki NPO Energomash,” an interlocutor at Roskosmos told Izvestia.

      Currently, Antares is equipped with AJ-26 engines made on the basis of the Soviet NK-33, preserved since the time of the unfinished lunar manned program. Engine designer Nikolai Kuznetsov in the early 1970s decided not to destroy, but to preserve several dozen copies. The first batch of NK-33 came to America in the mid-1990s, they went to Aerojet for $ 1 million apiece. The Americans adapted them for their needs for quite a long time, modernized, as a result, a modified AJ-26 engine appeared, already labeled Aerojet, therefore, American designers are responsible for this modification.

    Scratching my turnips and can't remember what the Yuzhnoye KB is in rocket engines? Well they only dealt with solid fuel. And here the Yankees are all right. Something I do not understand, what can they offer to replace our RD-180? No, well, if the engineering group of the Azov NSU regiment helps them, then yes laughing

      what is the South KB in rocket engines? Well they only engaged in solid fuel.

      Here you, dear Engineer, are greatly mistaken - basically, the Yuzhny Design Bureau missiles were precisely liquid. To check, you can at least look at the wiki - not authority, of course, but copes with the basics hi
      But traditionally Makeevtsy was engaged in solid fuel.

    Go for it !!! Serious organization, with a serious name SSAU. Surely, there are already serious completed projects. Like this one, for example: The launch of the Ukrainian telecommunications satellite "Lybid-1" will not take place in 2016, as planned earlier, due to the financial problems of the Canadian partners. This was announced on Monday by the head of the State Space Agency of Ukraine (SSAU) Lubomyr Sabadosh.
    "As part of the launch window for 2016, we received the position of the (Canadian) MDA company that it would be impossible to conduct a launch campaign in 2016 in compliance with all technical conditions," Sabadosha quoted UNIAN as saying. As he explained, Ukraine has fulfilled its commitments for the project, while the Canadian partners did not fulfill due to financial problems. At this stage, negotiations are underway to complete the project, added Sabadosh. The decision to manufacture and launch the Lybid-1 telecommunications satellite was made within the framework of the project to create a National Satellite Communication System. In 2009, SSAU signed a contract with a Canadian company for the production of a satellite and the construction of a ground support infrastructure facility in Ukraine for its use. The total funding for the program was approved in the amount of UAH 38,5 billion ($ 1,5 billion). The launch of Lybid-1 is planned from 2011, but is constantly postponed for various reasons. The satellite is now in storage in Russia.

    Mriy, mriy, mriy.
    Production cycle enterprises were scattered throughout the USSR. With what remains in Ukraine after the collapse of the Union, it is impossible to produce normal engines without cooperation with Russian enterprises.
    And with what remains of what remains, it is generally from the field of unscientific fiction. laughing

    Mattress covers please! They are already with the ruin like a cat with bacon - so they contacted her, and what to do next ... And new "business projects" start, then we get richer with Mriya, then we will quickly twist the rocket engine, by the way, it is not so on the Ukrainian engine for a long time the mattress covers have already rolled, though it did not work out far. I am not belittling the brain potential of Ukraine - there is simply no one, nothing, and nothing to build there rocket and space technology from. And who, and the Americans, should know this better than anyone else, because the degree of destruction of the industrial potential of Ukraine is under their control.
