JSC Academician M.F. ReshetnevInformation Satellite Systems

The JSC “Information Satellite Systems” Reshetnev Company” at an International seminar

From the 8th to 12th of September the 7th International seminar “Heat pipes, thermo-compressors, refrigerators, and energy sources” was held in Minsk. The JSC “Information Satellite Systems” Reshetnev Company” participated at the seminar.

One of the subjects of the past seminar was the use of heat pipes in aerospace industry. The JSC “ISS” was represented by Valery Dvirny, Patent & Information Department Manager Deputy. He gave a lecture on “Development, work, and manufacturing of heat pipes for communication, navigation and geodesy satellites”, which was prepared in co-authorship with Nickolay Testoyedov, General Designer and General Director of the JSC “ISS”. Both achievements and innovation projects of the enterprise in the given field were reflected in the lecture. Part of the lecture, related to innovations, was prepared jointly with Dataware Department Manager, Roman Turkenich.

The heat pipes development for spacecraft started at the JSC “ISS” in the middle of 70s’. Since that time, the enterprise successfully applies them for the satellites of different application and class. Heat pipes, manufactured at the JSC “ISS” are remarkable for their high quality, and they exceed western analogues. The pipes’ heat engineering characteristics are confirmed in the result of experimental researches, ground and flight tests, as well as reliable operation in more than seven space systems.
