"On the" Plastic "was made all the mechanical part of the" Spectrum-R ". Electronics, we are not concerned. The project was prepared four years ago. But due to some problems of its launch was postponed "
In the creation of critical components "Spektr-R" with no analogues in the world, took part Syzran "Plastic".
"Plastic" has long been involved in projects for space purposes. So, today on the "Plastic" in various stages of implementation are about 40 such projects. For example, solar cells made and frames for them.
The spacecraft was built in FSUE "NPO. Lavochkin. " The developers of scientific equipment are Astro Space Center of the Physics Institute of the Academy of Sciences (FIAN) and foreign partners. The main scientific instrument space laboratory is a radio telescope. It is a parabolic antenna gain instrumentation, receiving, converting and transmitting information to the scientific Earth. The antenna diameter — 10 meters It consists of a main mirror diameter of 2.6 m and 27 synchronously drop in outer space petals. These elements have been designed and manufactured by experts "plastic".
"On the" Plastic "was made all the mechanical part of the" Spectrum-R ". Electronics, we are not concerned. The project was prepared four years ago. But due to a number of problems delayed its launch. " — Told the "Chronograph" Fathrahman Urmansov, Assistant General Director of JSC "Plastic".
