Experts the group Technodynamical" in the state Corporation "rostec", presented at the exhibition "INNOPROM-2015" in Ekaterinburg updated suit for spacewalks. It is built in the so-called climate control that has no analogues in the world.
The creators of Orlan MKS has created it even better. "By replacing the rubber membrane for polyurethane engineers turned to increase the period of use of spacesuits with 4 to 5 years, and the number of EVAs from 15 to 20", - told in Department of public relations of group Technodynamical".
Professionals have informed that the astronauts will be able to not only personally to wear new suits, but also to carry out all activities focused on tuning and minor repairs. In case of depressurization in consequence of a defect of a covering in the "Orlan MKS system is provided capable of maintaining inside space suit your own pressure.
However the largest specificity of innovations is considered to be automated thermal control system, which allows the astronauts to not be distracted by control of temperature and pay more attention to these tasks. Also, she will not allow either overheating or overcooling of researchers during the work in open space.
In many ways the new Russian spacesuits significantly surpass foreign analogues, said the experts. For example, American costumes ISS EVA suit can maintain pressure if the damage is only 30 minutes, and Orlan MKS - 50 minutes. This gives the astronauts plenty of time to get back to the station. Besides all this, the Russian development easier by 35 kg, and in Orlan MKS" can I come in and not to put it on yourself. But the most relevant is the duplication of systems to increase reliability.
