SDO “Yuzhnoye” specialists are working on the creation of advanced liquid rocket engine (LRE) line that first of all, allows satisfying our own needs in modern engines due to creation of new families of launch vehicles (LV) as well as satisfying requirements of the market. The creation of this LRE line allows us to be sure in the independence of Ukrainian rocket industry from foreign shipment of modern LRE for the solving of an independent access to space market that is actual for all the technically developed economics.
