Next week, the conclusions of the State Commission on the reasons for the transfer of the first launch from the spaceport Vostochny will be presented - Igor Komarov
“The commission’s work has been completed. The conclusions will be presented next week, ”said I. Komarov.

According to preliminary data, a source in the rocket and space industry reported that critical faults in the onboard systems of the Soyuz 2.1 launch vehicle that could lead to an abnormal situation when launching from the Vostochny one were not revealed.

He said that the main version of the launch cancellation is a mismatch of the design documentation of the cable connector in the ground control system unit.

"All the onboard systems worked normally, we are talking about a cable fault in the ground control unit, its non-compliance with the design documentation," said the agency interlocutor.

The first launch from the Vostochny cosmodrome was planned back in December 2015. However, in mid-October 2015, Russian President Vladimir Putin proposed to postpone the launch for 2016 year.

State Commission 4 April 2016 of the year decided to appoint the first launch from the cosmodrome on April 27. However, the launch on this day did not take place: automatic equipment worked one and a half minutes before the start. The Soyuz-2.1 launch vehicle with the Aist-2D and Mikhailo Lomonosov spacecraft, as well as the SamSat-218 nanosatellite, launched the next day, on April 28. At launch, attended by Russian President Vladimir Putin. He took part in a meeting of the State Commission, which sorted out the causes of the failure.

As reported after the launch of I. Komarov, the launch of the "Union-2.1" was postponed, possibly due to a lack of operation of one of the cables in the control system. "There was an automatic cancellation of the automation of the ground control system. She interrupted the flight program for a short time. The problem is that one of the parameters did not confirm the normal operation of the systems. We made sure that the systems are working properly. Apparently, the lack of work of one of the cables, the cables were replaced, "he said.

He specified that in preparation for the first launch from the East, more than 20 observations were revealed. In addition to the cable, the switching unit was also replaced.

Meanwhile, the Izvestia newspaper wrote that the problem with the cable, which was not manufactured using the design documentation, caused the launch of the missile.

"This situation in the NPO Automation Institute named after Academician Semihatov (NPA) was modeled, they saw first hand and the results were confirmed. The cable, which was used in the missile, was not manufactured using the design documentation and was without several necessary jumpers, "the source in the management of Roskosmos state corporation said.

In his opinion, “for the incident the main responsibility will surely be borne by the leadership of Ekaterinburg NPOA, but with him also those who were responsible for completeness of the test method of the ground control system at the spaceport,” Interfax notes.

In turn, the press secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov confirmed that the Russian president had reprimanded the vice-premier Dmitry Rogozin and the head of Roscosmos Igor Komarov, and also issued a resolution on incomplete official compliance with the general director of the NPO Automation Leonid Shalimov.

L. Shalimov was suspended from his duties during the work of the commission to investigate the reasons for the failure of the first launch from the Vostochny space center by the decision of D. Rogozin.

Later it became known that L. Shalimov resigned.
