37 The Progress Factory thereafter became the head enterprise for the series production of all modifications of launch vehicles based on the R-7, of R-9 combat missiles, of spacecraft developed at TsSKB, and of N-1 launch vehicles. Here I shall list only the main projects of Branch No. 3 and TsSKB from 1960 through 1975. 1. Branch No. 3 was responsible for management of production setup, modernization, and design follow-through on R-7, R-7A, and R-9 combat missiles. 2. From 1966 through 1974 and later, the branch was independently in charge of development of three- and four-stage launch vehicles using the R-7A missile.
To implement this idea, it was first necessary to solve the problem of automatic rendezvous and docking. The Soyuz design was completed in 1963. 21 This multiple-launch configuration of the Soyuz space complex was not successfully implemented. The most important results of the project were the development of a new type of piloted spacecraft, the 7K-OK, which inherited the name “Soyuz,” and the solution to the problem of automatic rendezvous and docking. Completely new on-board motion control, radio communications, telemetry, integrated power supply, television, life-support, correcting engine, descent, landing, and emergency rescue control systems were developed for the spacecraft.
26 OKB-1 was assigned to develop the piloted spacecraft for the circumlunar flight and the booster stage (on a competitive basis) using the UR-500K launch vehicle. ” 21. TsKBEM and collaborating organizations developed and manufactured 14 7K-L1 spacecraft for circumlunar flight. In all, from 1967 through 1970, there were 13 launches of UR-500K-L1 complexes in the unpiloted version. After a series of failed launches, they achieved satisfactory reliability. Unlike the 7K-OK and the LOK of the L3 complex, the L1 control system did not have to perform rendezvous and docking tasks.
