TOMSK, Dec 5 – RIA Tomsk. Institute of Applied Mathematics and Mechanics of Tomsk State University (SRI AMM TSU) scientists complete development of Russia’s first light-gas ballistic installation using compressed gas instead of gunpowder; leading researcher of institute Yury Khristenko reported, installation to be used for simulation of meteoroid influence on spacecrafts.

"The easily gas ballistic installations, which are used today in Russia for simulation of impact of meteoroid and space debris on spacecrafts (there are five-six of them in Russia), use gunpowder. But recently scientists have big problems with its use: experimental installations, rooms, service staff should be certified", – Khristenko told.

Separate problem, according to him, is storage of gunpowder and explosive materials: "Therefore we also thought of use of a compressed gas. Organizations of Roskosmos are primarily interested in development of such installations".

According to him, scientists of the Scientific Research Institute AMM developed projects of two-level and three-stage ballistic installations for leading research institute of Roskosmos – TSNIIMash. They will allow to imitate influence of different elements fragmentary meteoroid environment on spacecrafts in land conditions to develop more effective remedies of protection of satellites and the ISS.

"Also other organizations, where researches of reliability of different constructions and new materials at high-speed blow are conducted, for example, when testing aircraft equipment, got interested in the development. Space speeds are not necessary for such researches – so-called artillery, up to 2.5 kilometers per second is enough", – Khristenko told.

He also reported that negotiations with a potential customer from among civil structures are now conducted.
