Dnepr

The Dnepr LV is intended for timely high-accurate injection of a single spacecraft or a group of various SCs with total mass of up to 3.7 t into the near-Earth orbits of 300-900 km altitude and 50.5°, 64.5°, 87.3°and 98° inclination. It is created on the basis of the most powerful in the world ICBM RS-20 (SS-18 Satana) having high power capability and reliability confirmed by 160 launches (including 8 launches under the Dnepr program). The design scheme of RS-20 missile and invariance of the control system have allowed creation on its basis of the high-effective launch vehicle that meets the current requirements for the SC injection means.


The Dnepr LV is intended for timely high-accurate injection of a single spacecraft (SC) or a group of various SCs with total mass of up to 3.7 t into the near-Earth orbits of 300-900 km altitude and 50.5°, 64.5°, 87.3°and 98° inclination.
It is created on the basis of the most powerful in the world ICBM RS-20 (SS-18 Satana) having high power capability and reliability confirmed by 160 launches (including 8 launches under the Dnepr program). The design scheme of RS-20 missile and invariance of the control system have allowed creation on its basis of the high-effective launch vehicle that meets the current requirements for the SC injection means.
The following main principles are realized during creation of the Dnepr LV:
- maximum utilization of earlier designed and developed systems and components of RS-20 Complex;
- application of proven technological procedures;
- utilization of existing LV flight routes with impact regions for separating parts and payload fairing.
The Complex is able to provide up to 25 launches per year.
Being installed into a silo and filled with propellants, the LV may stay unlimited time, within the service life, in the launch device before integration of the space payload with SC or with attached space payload. The replacement of the SC (space payload) does not require propellant discharge and LV removal out of the launch device.
