In FSE "SIC RCP" (Peresvet, Moscow region) are the second bench test (HSI2) of the first stage of the carrier rocket "Soyuz-2-1b."
After the first "cold" tests (HSI1) in the spring of this year, have been refined sequence diagram of the second stage of tests that are performed in the company during the period from June 20 to 22.
The objectives were HSI2 provide confirmation (development if necessary) the required temperature oxidizer and fuel during refueling and during parking, filled OI, design and environment in the compartments of OI characteristics without burning engine as well as an acknowledgment (experimental determination) characteristics of pneumatic systems OI.
During the test, a number of problems associated with working with standard technology of the stage of the launch vehicle until the command "Start".
FSE "SIC RCP" — the head of the Federal Test Center Space Agency bench working out of liquid rocket engines, propulsion systems for the various components of fuel, testing of spacecraft thermal vacuum chamber to simulate conditions in space research problems start of launch vehicles and launch facilities.
