RSC Energia: electrical tests of Soyuz MS-10 started in Baikonur

June 8, 2018

RSC Energia specialists started electrical tests of the Soyuz MS-10 transport manned spacecraft which on June 5 was delivered to the integration and test facility (ITF) of Area 254 of Baikonur launch site.

The day before a joint team of specialists from SC ROSCOSMOS enterprises performed an inspection and acceptance of the spacecraft which arrived from Korolev by rail.

Soyuz MS-10 was manufactured at RSC Energia.

The new-modification Progress MS and Soyuz MS spacecraft developed and manufactured by RSC Energia is a result of a radical upgrade of Progress M and Soyuz TMA spacecraft. Thanks to the use of the new ground and onboard radio systems, it became possible to use state-of-the-art data transmission protocols, which resulted in improved operational stability of the spacecraft control system. The majority of technical solutions incorporated in Soyuz MS and Progress MS design will be used in development of a new generation transport manned spacecraft being developed by RSC Energia.

RSC Energia is the leader in the rocket and space industry, and the prime contractor for manned space systems. The Corporation conducts work on the development of unmanned space and rocket systems (launch vehicles and orbital transfer vehicles), and high-technology systems for various non-space applications. Since August 2014, the Corporation is headed by Vladimir Solntsev.

SC ROSCOSMOS is a State Corporation established in August of 2015 in order to conduct a comprehensive reform of the rocket and space industry in Russia. State Corporation Roscosmos assures implementation of the Government policies in the field of space activities and provides for them a legal and regulatory framework, as well as places orders for the development, production and delivery of space hardware and space infrastructure facilities. The functions of the State Corporation also include development of international cooperation in space, and creating conditions for using results of space activities in social and economic development of Russia.
