From July 20 to July 25, 2021, the International Aviation and Space Salon was held in Zhukovsky, Moscow region. MAKS-2021 continued the longstanding tradition and united in frames of the exhibition the leading Russian companies specialized in the aerospace technology, equipment and materials. A participation in the International Aviation and Space Salon opens new perspectives for business development in the most advanced areas of the domestic engineering – aerospace industry and aircraft engineering.
The enterprises of the Rocket engine manufacturing integrated structure presented at MAKS-2021 advanced developments in the rocket engine manufacturing. EDB Fakel (a part of JSC NPO Energomash rocket engine manufacturing integrated structure of the Roscosmos state corporation) exhibited for the visitors two lines of space thrusters: thermo-catalytic and plasma thrusters, as well as a spacecraft dummy with a propulsion system. JSC Fakel also presented its new perspective developments which are low-power FaberG-34, PlaS-10, PlaS-34 thrusters and a mini-SPT for small spacecraft.
At MAKS-2021 official opening on July 20 EDB Fakel’s stand was visited by the General Director of the Roscosmos state corporation Dmitriy Rogozin and by the General Director of JSC NPO Energomash Igor Arbuzov. EDB Fakel’s stand was also visited by a row of directors of large enterprises in the industry, in particular by the General Director of JSC RSC Progress Dmitriy Baranov. The Roscosmos state corporation gave a very high opinion about the organization of the exhibition stands by the enterprises of the rocket and space industry this year.
On the days open to the public, EDB Fakel’s stand was very popular not only among the accomplished specialists, but also among students, schoolchildren and younger children. Some of them showed an interest in undertaking an internship at Fakel, some were interested in the principles of operation of plasma and thermal catalytic thrusters. Souvenirs with Fakel’s logo were given to schoolchildren, students and visitors.
JSC EDB Fakel (a part of the state corporation Roscosmos) is one of the leading enterprises in development of electric propulsion systems and thermal catalytic propulsion systems operating using Hydrazine. Fakel has a production experience in serial and mass delivery of thrusters both in commercial and state market segments. The share of the thrusters production in the world for spacecraft is about 10%. More than 70 Russian spacecraft (more than 60% of the Russian orbital constellation) and 30 Western spacecraft are equipped with thrusters developed and produced by EDB Fakel. Today EDB Fakel’s partners are ISS Reshetnev, RSC Energia, Khrunichev State Research and Production Center, Lavochkin Research and Production Association, Research and Production Corporation VNIIEM, Maxar (USA), Airbus, TAS (France), MELСO (Japan), IAI (Israel), OHB (Sweden).
