As Russia prepares to withdraw from the International Space Station, a new space station is being designed to ensure that “no country will be left without a space station.”

A model of the new Russian space station (ROS for short) ARMY-2022 First Day of the Expo It began in the Moscow region on August 15th.

The space station, whose design is being developed by Russian spacecraft maker Energia, is expected to be operational by the time Russia withdraws from the International Space Station program and will be able to detect wildfires and monitor melting. is supposed to help take care of the planet. Glacier, for example, was told to Sputnik by one of his engineers who helped design the station.

Engineer Margarita Sidorova explains that they have already completed the first preliminary design of the station, calculating the height and angle of the track. The team is currently working out preliminary designs for all of the station’s modules, which will themselves be deployed in her two phases.

According to Sidorova, the first stage includes a base module containing a scientific module, a node section with an airlock, and a crew quarter, while the second stage includes three dedicated modules, one of which is a service platform.

“The first module is ready and its flight model is already available,” Sidorova said. “Initially, it was expected to become part of the ISS. Now the module has been upgraded and now has the ability to control the entire station, just like the Zarya module on the ISS. The module will be the first one, put into orbit, and will be the foundation of our space station.”

She also pointed out that ROS will be able to monitor nearly the entire surface of the Earth and, most importantly, the entire Russian territory, something the ISS cannot do.

“This station will allow us to monitor melting glaciers and track and prevent wildfires, especially in hard-to-reach places in Russia,” Sidorova said. “Nowadays, we are often unable to detect them immediately and only notice them when it is too late. ROS are also useful for complex geological surveys – for example, exploration of new natural resource deposits. ”

representative of Energia Corporation who manned the company’s stand in ARMY-2022 Expo He explained that the station was designed to ensure that “no country is left without a space station” as Russia is moving out of the ISS project.

The 8th International Military Technology Forum ARMY-2022 started on August 15th and continues until August 21st at several venues in the Moscow region.
