RSC Energia held the Scientific and Technical Council for the Space Rocket Complex of a Super-Heavy Class

November 5, 2019

On November 1 S.P. Korolev RSC Energia (which is included in State Corporation Roscosmos) held an expanded Scientific and Technical Council to review Conceptual Design for the Space Rocket Complex of a Super-Heavy Class (CD SRC SHC).

It was attended by representatives of RSC Energia and other associate contractors: RSC Progress, TsENKI, NIISK, KB Motor, KBTKhM, RSC, M.V. Khrunichev GKNPTs, NPTsAP, NVK Kosmosoft, as well as by representatives of leading research organizations: TsNIImash, NPO Tekhnomash, SSC Keldysh Center and the Agat Organization. From State Corporation Roscosmos STC was attended by Executive Director for launch vehicles and GSI operation A.V. Mazurin, Chairman of Scientific and Technical Council of Roscosmos Yu.N. Koptev and Director of the Department for the Space Rocket Complex of Super-Heavy Class program implementation I.K. Novikov. Also STC was attended by General Designer of space rocket systems A.A. Medvedev, General Designer of manned programs of the Russian Federation E.A. Mikrin, General Designer of KB Salyut S.V. Kuznetsov, General Designer, TsENKI A.A. Bogomolov and others.

A report about the results of the development of Conceptual Design for the Space Rocket Complex of a Super-Heavy Class was made by General Director General Designer of RSC Energia N.N. Sevastianov. The results of the development of components of the conceptual design for a Super-Heavy Class Launch Vehicle were presented by Chief Designer of RSC Progress A.A. Cherevan; General Director of RSC Progress D.A. Baranov; Deputy General Designer of KB Salyut, M.V. Khrunichev GKNPTs Yu.I. Zavora; Chief Designer of the branch of TsENKI KB Motor R.V. Chaika and Chief Designer of the branch of TsENKI NIISK N.A. Abrosimov. Also, reports were made by representatives of leading research organizations: Head of the Center for launch vehicles and ground-based space infrastructure of TsNIImash I.I. Kuznetsov; Acting First Deputy General Director for Research, NPO Tekhnomash A.I. Kuzin; General Director of SSC Keldysh Center V.V. Koshlakov and Discipline Head of the Agat Organization D.P. Smirnov.

In his speech Director of the Department for the implementation of the program for the SRC SHC development of State Corporation Roscosmos I.K. Novikov emphasized that cooperative enterprises and RSC Energia as the prime contractor for the development of Conceptual Design for the Space Rocket Complex of a Super-Heavy Class did the great fundamental work which should be accepted by the end of 2019.

Based on the results of the session the Scientific and Technical Council decided to approve the results of conceptual designs for SRC SHC and its components and submit them to State Corporation Roscosmos.

At the session it was noted that the presented results of Conceptual Design for SRC SHC confirm compliance with the requirements of technical specification, as well as the master schedule approved in last December by General Director of State Corporation Roscosmos D.O. Rogozin.

STC recommended to carry out the engineering design of SRC SHC in 2020.

For reference

State Corporation Roscosmos concluded a state contract for the implementation of an integral part of the development work with S.P. Korolev RSC Energia as the prime contractor for the development of conceptual design for the space rocket complex of a super-heavy class.

The main task of the space rocket complex of a super-heavy class is to conduct manned missions to near-moon orbit, as well as to inject the 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 technical specification, the space rocket complex should inject at least 80 tons of payload into low Earth orbit and at least 20 tons into near-moon orbit.
