Tests of Fuelling System of Angara 1.2 Light-Class Launcher Begin at Plesetsk Cosmodrome. / April 9, 2014 /

At the launch complex of the Angara Space Rocket Complex of the Plesetsk Cosmodrome (Arkhangelsk Region), the Russian Aerospace Defence Forces′ experts are conducting preparations for testing the fuelling system of Angara 1.2PP light-class carrier rocket.

Currently, a mockup of the Russia′s first light-class modification Angara 1.2PP carrier rocket is installed on launch pad of the universal launch complex where the cosmodrome experts will carry out a four-day tests of the Angara 1.2PP fuelling systems and units and check the universal launch complex′s fuelling equipment preparedness for the maiden launch of the Angara 1.2PP light-class carrier rocket.
The first launch of Angara 1.2PP from the Plesetsk launch site and in-flight tests of the Angara space rocket complex are scheduled for June 2014.
The Angara space complex construction is the priority of special national importance. The Angara space complex commissioning will enable Russia to loft all types of spacecraft from its own territory and secure Russia s independent access to space.

Angara Space Rocket Complex.

The Angara space rocket complex ground infrastructure objects are constructed at the Plesetsk State Test Cosmodrome within the framework of Federal Program „Development of the Russian Cosmodromes for 2006-2015“; the design and manufacture of the carrier rocket is under the State Armament Program and Federal Space Program of Russia for 2006-2015.
The prime designer and manufacturer of the Angara Space Rocket Complex is the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center
The state customers are Russian Ministry of Defence and Federal Space Agency.
The Angara Space Rocket Complex is being built based on the unified series of light, medium, and heavy-class rockets and will be capable of putting into orbit practically a whole range of prospective payloads to the benefit of the Russian Ministry of Defence over the entire required range of orbit altitudes and inclinations including the geostationary orbit, thus ensuring a real guaranteed independence of the domestic military space activity.
The Angara family will use environmentally-friendly liquid oxygen / kerosene propellants that will provide a high degree of the environmental safety of the Complex both in the surrounding area and in areas of rocket detachable module falling.
