According to the functionary, the first version of the device called Laros PH-1 will be single-stage. The rocket, which can rise to a height of 130 km, will be equipped with an engine with a thrust of 500 kg. The first launch is scheduled for 2020.
Laros RN-1 will be used to work out a dynamic landing. According to Larionov, the carrier will display the payload, then make a U-turn and land on the “tail” due to the engine. A similar scheme is used by SpaceX Corporation in its reusable Falcon family missiles.
Laros devices will run on a mixture of hydrogen peroxide and aviation kerosene. Electric pumps will be responsible for pumping fuel in zero gravity. The launch of RN-1 is planned to be carried out with a heavy-duty automobile trailer.
Now on mobile stands several prototypes of the rocket engine with a thrust of 20 kg are being tested. After achieving stable performance, the units will be scaled to a capacity of 500 kg. It is worth noting that the engines for the promising rocket are created using additive of technologies.
If the Laros RN-1 tests are successful, then in the future the company plans to start creating a second carrier model that can bring a payload of 200 kg into orbit up to a height of 500 km.
