Russia to resume test launches of troubled Bulava missile Sept. 9-12

Test launches of Russia's Bulava ballistic missile will resume between September 9 and 12, a defense industry source said on Friday.

Test launches of Russia's Bulava ballistic missile will resume between September 9 and 12, a defense industry source said on Friday.

"Everything is ready for the resumption of test launches," the source said. "I do not think there will be any postponement this time."

Bulava test launches were put on hold after a failed launch, from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear submarine in the White Sea on December 9, 2009, which was caused by a defective engine nozzle.

The source also said if the launch is successful, at least another three test launched will be conducted before the end of the year.

The Bulava (SS-NX-30), a three-stage liquid and solid-propellant submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), has officially suffered seven failures in 12 tests.

But some analysts suggest that in reality the number of failures was considerably larger, with Russian military expert Pavel Felgenhauer suggesting that of the Bulava's 12 test launches, only one was entirely successful.

Test-launches of Russia's troubled Bulava missile delayed again

Test launches of Russia's ill-fated Bulava ballistic missile will resume "soon," but not in September as previously announced, General Staff Chief Nikolai Makarov said on Wednesday.

Test launches of Russia's ill-fated Bulava ballistic missile will resume "soon," but not in September as previously announced, General Staff Chief Nikolai Makarov said on Wednesday.

Defense Minister Sergei Serdyukov said two weeks ago that the test launches would resume in the second half of September.

The Bulava test launches were put on hold after a failed launch, from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear submarine in the White Sea on December 9, 2009, which was caused by a defective engine nozzle.

The Bulava (SS-NX-30), a three-stage liquid and solid-propellant submarine-launched ballistic missile (SLBM), has officially suffered seven failures in 12 tests.

Russia prepares for another test launch of Bulava ballistic missile

Russia will hold on Friday another test launch of a Bulava ballistic missile from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear-powered submarine.

Russia will hold on Friday another test launch of a Bulava ballistic missile from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear-powered submarine.

This will be the 14th test launch of the missile. Over half of the previous test launches of the submarine-based missile failed so far.

The latest successful test launch was held on October 7 from the Dmitry Donskoy submarine in the White Sea. The warhead hit its target on the Kura test range in Russia's Far East Kamchatka region.

Deputy Defense Minister Vladimir Popovkin said earlier in the week that the ballistic missile would enter service only when it is 98-99% efficient.

The Russian military expects the Bulava, along with Topol-M land-based ballistic missiles, to become the core of Russia's nuclear triad.

The Bulava (SS-NX-30) SLBM carries up to 10 MIRV warheads and has a range of over 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles). The three-stage ballistic missile is designed for deployment on Borey-class nuclear-powered submarines.

Russia carries out another successful test launch of Bulava missile

A test warhead from a Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile successfully hit its target on the Kura test range in Russia's Far East Kamchatka region.

A test warhead from a Bulava submarine-launched ballistic missile successfully hit its target on the Kura test range in Russia's Far East Kamchatka region, the Russian Defense Ministry said on Friday.

The missile was fired from underwater from the Dmitry Donskoy nuclear-powered submarine in the White Sea at 5:10 Moscow time (1:10 GMT).

This was the 14th test launch of the Russian ballistic missile. Seven of the previous test launches failed due to various technical reasons.

The previous test launch of the Bulava ballistic missile was carried out on October 7 and was also successful.

The Russian military expects the Bulava, along with Topol-M land-based ballistic missiles, to become the core of Russia's nuclear triad.

The Bulava (SS-NX-30) SLBM carries up to 10 MIRV warheads and has a range of over 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles). The three-stage ballistic missile is designed for deployment on Borey-class nuclear-powered submarines.

Russian submarine test-fires Bulava missile successfully

The Russian Navy successfully test-fired an experimental Bulava (SS-N-X-30) intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday from its Yury Dolgoruky submarine in the White Sea, the Defense Ministry said.

The Russian Navy successfully test-fired an experimental Bulava (SS-N-X-30) intercontinental ballistic missile on Friday from its Yury Dolgoruky submarine in the White Sea, the Defense Ministry said.

“Today as part of the state trials program, a successful routine test took place of a Bulava ICBM from the Yury Dolgoruky submarine,” the Navy said.

The missile, the third Bulava launched this year and seventeenth overall, hit a target on the Kura test range in Kamchatka in the Russian Far East.

“The missile’s flight took place as planned. The missile’s payload hit the range on time," the Defense Ministry said.

Bulava has had a troubled test and development, and only nine of the test firings so far have been declared fully successful.

General Explains Human Factor in Failed Bulava Launches


[ Attachment: You are not allowed to view attachments ]
Unsuccessful launches of Bulava intercontinental ballistic missile happened due to human factor and were the result of unprofessional work of certain people, Chief of the Russian General Staff Gen. Nikolai Makarov said on Saturday.

Trials of Bulava began in 2004, six of the 18 full-scale Bulava trials failed. A series of successful launches began in October 2010.

"You know that there were several unsuccessful launches of Bulava. We stopped the trials, we carefully worked through the reasons of failures and to a greater extent it was a human factor, where a person did his work unprofessionally. You know, as there was no special control he did it "somehow" this was the main factor,” Makarov said in an interview with radio station Echo of Moscow.

At the same time Chief of the Russian General Staff said that the military men initially did not understand what the problem was, as in different four launches there were discovered four unrelated problems.

"We realized that the technical solution itself was correct and we appointed a military officer who oversaw every process and after that all the launches were successful," general said.

On December 23, the strategic submarine Yury Dolgoruky launched two Bulava missiles. The Defense Ministry said that the launch was successful and it will now be adopted for service with the Russian Navy.

Bulava 'De Facto' Enters Service – Navy Chief
http://en.rian.ru/mlitary_news/20120625/174237676.html
20:04 25/06/2012
The Bulava sea-based ballistic missile has de facto entered service, Navy chief Vice Adm. Viktor Chirkov said on Monday.

The Bulava sea-based ballistic missile has de facto entered service, Navy chief Vice Adm. Viktor Chirkov said on Monday.

“The Bulava missile has de facto been adopted for service with the Navy and the de jure paperwork is being completed,” Chirkov said.

The Bulava (SS-NX-30) SLBM, developed by the Moscow Institute of Thermal Technology (since 1998), carries up to 10 MIRV warheads and has a range of over 8,000 kilometers (5,000 miles). The three-stage ballistic missile is designed for deployment on Borey-class nuclear submarines.

Only 11 of 18 or 19 test launches of the troubled Bulava have been officially declared successful.

However, some analysts suggest that in reality the number of failures is considerably higher. Despite several previous failures officially blamed on manufacturing faults, the Russian military has insisted that there is no alternative to the Bulava.

Last week the St. Petersburg City Court sentenced two university professors to long prison terms for selling military secrets to China, including data on the Bulava missile system.
