  • Unforgiving void: Spaceflight tragedies remembered


    A sobering week in spaceflight saw the first in-flight fatality in a commercial space programme, as Virgin Galactic lost a test pilot with the breakup of its SpaceShipTwo over the Nevada desert, along with a spectacular but non-fatal launch failure of an uncrewed International Space Station resupply mission. After that ISS mission failure, no less an authority than NASA human spaceflight director William Gerstenmaier took pains to remind everybody that launching rockets is a “tough business” – and warned against complacency as NASA and its private contractors prepare to return to the business of launching American astronauts to orbit.

    <H2><FONT size=2>All the international suppliers spoke the same language when it came to systems integration</FONT></H2> <P>Every major SSJ system is being produced by an international supplier - many of which have linked with local Russian specialists. Sukhoi is reluctant to disclose the value of the content outsourced overseas, but it is without doubt the highest ever for a Russian- designed and built aircraft.</P> <P>With first-tier suppliers numbering at least 10 European and North American companies, the SSJ programme's supply structure ensures that for the first time in a Russian programme, potential international customers can have peace of mind that spares and support will be available worldwide. And according to SCAC president Victor Subbotin, all the contracts with suppliers are in US dollars, which should protect Sukhoi from exchange rate fluctuations.</P> <P>The first-tier suppliers have been integrated into the development effort from the beginning, and are funding theihttp://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/Systems-All-the-international-suppliers-spoke-the-same-language-when-it-came-to-systems-integration-211876/
