  • Vibrostaticheskie completed testing space observatory

FSUE "NPO. SA Lavochkin "together with co-operation continues to work on the creation of a world space observatory" Spectrum-Ultraviolet "(" Spectrum-UV ").

Now experts NGOs complete stand-alone test components of the space telescope T-170M. Vibrostaticheskie telescope test completed.

Within the thermal vacuum ground tests of the T-170M held autonomous heat-vacuum tests of two of the five assemblies telescope: hardware installation service complex on the instrument panel 1 and the hardware installation of the complex of major scientific instruments (CONGO) on the instrument panel 2 telescope T-170M.

Russian subcontractors (IKI) made technological equipment layouts service complex telescope T-170M. In addition, tests are carried out docking process of the sample set of core scientific instruments.

Also currently the Institute of Astronomy (INASAN) together with cooperation of prototypes were made scientific equipment: block spectrographs electronic equipment for controlling and collecting scientific data. Some of them have already been put in Lavochkin NPO for further work on the ground development of the telescope and scientific equipment.

Spanish side (head scientific organization — the Complutense University of Madrid, headache industrial organization — a company SENER) this year staged a full-scale dimensions and layout of the mass — the scientific equivalent of the thermal unit — the unit cells of the field ISSIS. It will be used to test the telescope T-170M and CPNM.

Recall that the "World Space Observatory — Ultraviolet" (WSO-UV) is a project of major space observatory for fundamental astrophysical conducting research in the ultraviolet and visible regions of the electromagnetic spectrum with a high angular resolution of gamma radiation on the operational orbit satellites, receiving and transmitting data received scientific Earth.

The main tool of the observatory — a space telescope with a primary mirror diameter of 1.7 meters will be equipped with spectrographs of high and low resolution cameras and for high-resolution spectra and building high-quality images in the UV range. Such a set of scientific instruments can provide solutions to a wide class of supervisory tasks.

Among the important areas of research offered by the Russian astronomical community, highlights the following research areas: physics of the early universe, star formation, chemical evolution of galaxies, accretion processes in astrophysics (accretion (Latin Accretio «increment increase" from accrescere «grow») — the process of falling substance on the outer body from the environment), and the properties of the interstellar medium, physics of stellar atmospheres, weight loss, chromospheric activity, physics and chemistry of planetary atmospheres, and comets.

Opportunity WSO-UV is similar, and in some characteristics superior Space Telescope. Hubble (USA).

When you create an observatory "Spectrum-UV" using a basic module support systems (BMSS) "Navigator", developed in the NPO. SA Lavochkin. The module "Navigator" contains utility systems necessary to control the spacecraft — board control system, radio system, power supply system, the propulsion system. All these systems are designed for operation in open space. The efficiency BMSS successfully confirmed in the projects "Electro-L" and "Spektr-R".
