Zenit-2SLB

“Zenit-2SLB” launch vehicle is a representative of Zenit rockets family using non-toxic propellants - liquid oxygen and kerosene RG-1. It was developed for launching spacecraft from Baikonur Space Center under the Land Launch Program into low and medium circular and elliptic orbits. “Zenit-2SLB” LV is operated in the composition of Zenit-M space rocket complex by the International Space Services to provide launch services on a commercial basis. The first launch is scheduled on 2009.

Zenit-M rocket complex features the following advantages: 

- Horizontal technology of integration and transportation allows significant simplification of technological equipment and prelaunch preparation.
- Full automatization of prelaunch processing provides minimum duration of launch preparation, the highest safety of personnel, LV independence on weather conditions and short-time refurbishment of the launch place for the next launch.
- High reliability foreseen by projecting and ensured by the proven manufacturing processes.
- Ecologically clean propellants.

Layout scheme

Zenit-3SLB was designed in a stacking manner with monoblock tandem scheme. The three-staged Zenit-3SLB LV contains Zenit-2SB LV and the space payload consisting of:

- upper stage DM-SLB elaborated by Energia RSC;

- nose fairing of 10400 mm length and 4100 mm diameter;

- payload.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Zenit-2SB LV is being created on the basis of Zenit-2S LV designed within the framework of the Sea Launch program and is unified with Zenit-2S. This allows Zenit-2SB LV to be used in composition of both Zenit-2SLB ILV and Zenit-3SLB ILV, as well as for Zenit-3SL ILV with minimum changes of design and configuration to be performed, if necessary, in the plant-manufacturer's conditions.
