Super heavy space rocket complex draft design approved
November 1, 2019 at PJSC Rocket and Space Corporation Energia named after S.P. Koroleva ”(part of Roscosmos State Corporation) an expanded Scientific and Technical Council (NTS) was held to consider a draft design of a superheavy class space rocket complex (SRK STK).
The council was attended by representatives of RSC Energia and partner companies: RCC Progress, TsENKI, NIISK, KB Motor, KBTKhM, CSW, NPO Energomash, NPO avtomatiki, GKNPTs im. M.V. Khrunicheva, NPTSAP, as well as leading research organizations: TsNIImash, NPO Tekhnomash, SSC Center of Keldysh and the Agat Organization. From the State Corporation "Roskosmos" on the NTS were present the Executive Director for the removal and operation of NKI A.V. Mazurin, Chairman of the Scientific and Technical Council of Roscosmos Yu.N. Koptev and Director of the Department for the implementation of the program of the CRC STK I.K. Novikov. Also in the meeting of the NTS was attended by the General Designer for launch vehicles and ground-based space infrastructure A.A. Medvedev, general designer for manned systems and systems E.A. Mikrin, General Designer of Design Bureau “Salyut” S.V. Kuznetsov, General Designer, TsENKI A.A. Bogomolov and others.
The report on the results of the development of the draft design of the airspace control complex STK was made by the General Director - General Designer of RSC Energia N.N. Sevastyanov. The results of the development of the components of the EP RST STK were reported: A.A. Progress RCC Chief Designer Cherevan; General Director of RCC "Progress" D.A. Rams; Deputy General Designer of Design Bureau Salyut, GKNPTs im. M.V. Khrunicheva Yu.I. Zavor; the chief designer of the branch of TsENKI - CB "Motor" R.V. Chaika and chief designer of the branch of TsENKI - NIISK N.A. Abrosimov. Also, reports were made by representatives of the leading research organizations: the head of the Center for launch vehicles and ground-based space infrastructure TsNIImash I.I. Kuznetsov; and about. A.I. First Deputy General Director for Research and Development of NPO Tekhnomash Cousin; General Director of SSC “Keldysh Center” V.V. Koshlakov and the head of the direction of the Agat Organization D.P. Smirnov.
In his speech, the Director of the Department for the implementation of the program for the creation of the CRC STK of the State Corporation "Roscosmos" I.K. Novikov emphasized that the cooperative enterprises and RSC Energia, as the lead contractor for the development of the preliminary design of the KRK STK, did a great fundamental work, which must be adopted before the end of 2019.
As a result of the meeting, the Scientific and Technical Council decided to approve the results of the draft designs of the air-space complex and its components and submit them to the Roscosmos State Corporation.
It was noted that the presented results of the preliminary design of the air defense system STK confirm compliance with the requirements of the statement of work, as well as the general schedule approved in December last year by the Director General of Roscosmos State Corporation D.O. Rogozin.
The Scientific and Technical Council recommended that the technical design of the CRC STK be carried out in 2020.
Roscosmos State Corporation concluded a state contract for the implementation of an integral part of development work with RSC Energia named after S.P. Koroleva as the lead contractor for the development of the conceptual design of the superheavy space rocket complex
The main task of the superheavy class space missile complex is to provide manned missions to near-moon orbit, as well as to launch new-generation automatic spacecraft and space station modules into near-earth orbits, to the Moon, Mars, Jupiter and other celestial bodies of the Solar System. According to the terms of reference, the missile system should bring at least 80 tons of payload to low Earth orbit and at least 20 tons to near moon.
