The present article is reviewing the solid propellant attitude control motor and its using for the emergency rescue system of a new generation manned transport spacecraft. In case of the accident in the I step flight area, while launching a new generation manned transport spacecraft from Vostochny space centre, application of the solid propellant attitude control motor allow: – to use configuration of aerodynamically and statically unstable launch abort vehicle; – to ensure the emergency rescue system mission and, in particular, for putting the descent vehicle in a dedicated near launch site at the proper time of starting landing system.
