Welcome to the Chicago Popular News community. The subject of this news is Roscosmos continues testing for the Soyuz-5 rocket and streamlines the production of components
here are the details.
With the war in Ukraine and international sanctions, the Russian space program (like the entire economy of the nation) is trying to cope with change. Despite the difficulties, it appears that the Russia And Roscosmos want to give the impression of wanting to continue to have a leading role in order not to lag behind the US and to give a positive image to allies (such as China).
An example is the news related to the new ROSS space station that are continuing to emerge over the months (and the past few weeks). However, this is not the only project that Russia is looking at and there is also talk of the new one medium launcher Soyuz-5. This solution is still under development and will serve to upgrade the country’s launch technologies. This is an important point, a bit like in the case of the new capsules for the crew for the low orbit and for the lunar missions.
Tests for Roscosmos’ new Soyuz-5 rocket
As written above, we are still in a testing phase and in particular we have focused on the propellant tanks. As reported in recent days a series of tests have been carried out on the strength of the materials and the distribution of stresses in the structural strength elements as well as rigidity.
In a press release by Roscosmos we read that “the static resistance of the lower part of the fuel tank has been confirmed with the power ring of the block of the first stage of the Soyuz-5 rocket, designed for cryogenic and ignition tests”.
The first ignition tests should take place at least in the third quarter of this year after another series of tests will be completed in these weeks. In the intentions of Roscosmos there is to replace the Zenit series rockets but it will take several evolutions to have the complete product. We will start with the RD-171MV engines and then move on to the RD-120. In general, the first flight is expected no earlier than 2023 with three launches in the period up to 2025 from the Baikonur Cosmodrome. The rocket is expected to remain in production until at least 2036 with two launches per year for this type of rocket.
Having an average vector should allow you to increase your launch cadence by Roscosmos. As stated several times by Dmitry Rogozin (director general) Russia needs a greater number of satellites in orbit (including for military and defense purposes). To do it will point also on the rationalization of the production of components for satellites.
After the international embargoes against Russia, the nation found itself in difficulty as it no longer had access to many high-tech components. For this it has had to revise its plans and now it seems that standardizing the production of components dedicated to satellites will reduce the time that will be lost in accessory tests while keeping the quality high.
