"At the Android Technology NGO, they said that the android will be made smaller, lighter and "visually nicer" than the Fedor robot

MOSCOW, January 15. / TASS /. The android robot of the Tester project, which will control the promising Russian spacecraft Orel, will be made smaller, lighter and visually nicer than the Fedora robot flying to the International Space Station. This was reported by TASS in the press service of the NGO Android Technology.

“Outwardly, it will look like a person. It will definitely be smaller and lighter than FEDOR. Visually it will be more pleasant: a more streamlined design and more plastic elements (which can bend during movements - approx. TASS),” the company noted, responding to the corresponding question. The press service did not exclude that the Test robot could be covered with fabric protection.

In the "Android technology" specified that another feature of the new android will be a more functional capture. The robot "Fedor" captures are made in the form of five-fingered hands, repeating human.

According to the developers, the final appearance of the robot will be determined after signing the contract with Roscosmos. "If this happens before the end of the quarter, then the appearance will be determined by the end of 2020, and ground tests will begin in 2022," the press service of Android Technology explained.

Earlier, Evgeny Dudorov, executive director of the Android Technology NGO, told TASS that during the first two flights, the Orel ship would be controlled by the Test Project robot. In turn, the executive director of Roscosmos for promising programs and science, Alexander Bloshenko, in an interview with TASS, noted that the android "will click on the buttons," that is, mechanically interact with the ship's controls.

The first launch of Orla without astronauts on board is planned for 2023 from Vostochny Cosmodrome; the docking of the ship during this flight with the International Space Station is not provided. In 2024, also without astronauts, the Eagle will perform a second flight, followed by docking with the ISS. Manned spacecraft flights will begin in 2025."


Not to make a sexist statement but I am tired about hearing all female space walks on the ISS, lets try robots instead.

While Soyuz-2 launch and docking of Soyuz MS-16 is success.
is the PTK Orel ("eagle') program again in difficulty and delays.

This time the Entire Landings system will be modified
mean more mass, bigger parachutes, it's container inside Capsule
This will delay considerably the construction and Testing of PTK Orel for years...

Next to that they switch from Soyuz-5 to Angara-5P rocket to launch Orel
what make sense since Soyuz-5 is not yet build
but Angara-5 test flight 2 got delay since 4 years...
how far work goes for Angara-5P the manned rated version is unclear.
for the moment works for Angara launch complex in Vostochny goes on...

The difficulties that lie ahead are not as great as those we have already overcome.

Rest In Peace.

Odd enough timing, though the need for supplemental funding is a factor.
