Kazakhstan And Russia To Develop A New Missile Rocket

Thursday, May 25, 2017 - 02:30

In the near future, Kazakhstan intends to discuss with Russia the further use of the Baikonur Cosmodrome, and to begin joint development of a medium-range missile. According to Deputy Prime Minister of the Russian Federation Dmitry Rogozin, in a few days the parties will begin to consider the further use of the Baikonur Cosmodrome within the Baiterek project. Kazakhstan intends to participate in the reconstruction of the launching table financially, after which the development of the new missile will begin.


“It will be a rocket belonging to the middle class; its carrying capacity to low Earth orbit will be up to 17 tons. For its creation, we will use the reserve available in the framework of the launch pad of the former Zenit rocket at Baikonur,” Rogozin stressed.


According to the Deputy Prime Minister, the development of such a missile will give Russia the opportunity to maintain competition in the market of space commercial services, taking into account modern American developments. “In the future, all these new developments will become part of a new rocket of the superheavy class,” Dmitry Rogozin said.


According to the Deputy Minister of Aerospace and Defense Industry of Kazakhstan, Marat Nurguzhin, the joint Kazakh-Russian project Baiterek will be based on the infrastructure of the KRK Zenit that already exists at Baikonur Cosmodrome. In addition, the project will also use a promising Russian medium-range launch vehicle. Its development will begin in 2018, within the framework of the Federal Space Program of the Russian Federation.


The Russian side will be engaged in the creation of a new carrier rocket, while the Kazakh side will have to modernize the existing technical and launching complexes of the KRK Zenit.
