MOSCOW, April 18. /ITAR-TASS/. The launch time for the first test start of the light carrier rocket Angara has been set - from June 25 to 30, the Russian Defense Ministry told ITAR-TASS on Friday.
The system is being created based on unified rockets of all types and will be able to orbit payloads at all required altitudes, which will ensure independence of the national military space activity.
The construction of the ground infrastructure facilities for the launch preparation is underway at the Plesetsk cosmodrome. The project has been implemented since 1995. The head designer and manufacturer of this type of rockets is the Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center.
The Angara system is designed for placing spacecraft with the mass from two to 24.5 tons into low, medium, high circular and elliptical, including stationary, orbits. The rocket’s various versions are implemented on the basis of universal models.
