New building for antennas assembly and test
The JSC “Academician M.F. Reshetnev” Information Satellite Systems” is developing a new production workshop designed for assembly and test of antennas and antenna-feeder systems.
At present, the underbody of foundation is fulfilled, manufacturing of body metal structure is completed at a manufacturing plant, and assembling of central temporary tower, where the central inner ring of building will be fixed, is implemented. In parallel with that, the assembling of columns, located by perimeter for placing the body load-carrying ring, is being started. Before October it is scheduled to assemble the metal frame of the whole building and to proceed to the roof erection.
The originality of a new building is the presence of dome-shaped structure, use of new building materials, and special installation method. In addition, during the realization of the project all additional requirements for seismic stability and establishing “clear zones” were taken into account. The new building will allow simulating the state of weightlessness for testing modern transformed mechanical systems of spacecraft.
The building is constructed in the framework of the project of enterprise reconstruction and technical reequipment, establishing new working places for assembly and test of large dimension mechanical systems: antennas, solar arrays and other.
