Rocket-space developments → VOLNA space-rocket complex

The VOLNA submarine-launched space-rocket complex is based on the RSM-50 (SS-N-18) SLBM to:

  • promptly launch experimental spacecraft to try out new technologies and structures in flight conditions;
  • conduct scientific and technological studies under microgravity with the use of a recoverable vehicle;
  • launch small spacecraft into near-earth orbits when equipped with an extra booster.

All the launches are performed from the Pacific Ocean water.
