In 1950 he was involved in various projects for the development of submarines. At first he worked in the St. Petersburg Maritime Bureau "malachite". Since 1953 has worked TSKB-18 (CDB “ruby”). Three years later, Spassky Igor Dmitrievich has become the Deputy chief engineer, and in 1968 he was appointed chief engineer.

At the same time he worked here, the chief designer and was the head of the appropriate Bureau.Spasskiy Igor Dmitrievich


General designer of Spasskiy had a leading role in the development of all submarines, which involved Bureau «Rubin». He oversaw the construction of nuclear submarines, which had a military strategic purpose. Among them should be noted the project 941 “Shark”, “Dolphin" project «Squid».

In 1973, Igor Dmitrievich was a candidate of technical Sciences, and after 5 years – a doctor. In 1984, Spassky became a corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences and a Professor. The Academy of Sciences was an expert on mechanics and control processes. Since 1987 he is a member of the Academy of Sciences.

A fresh start

After perestroika began, resulting in the collapse of the Soviet Union, the demand for nuclear submarines plummeted. However, this does not affect the scientist as he continued active and fruitful work on nuclear submarines. Despite the fact that sentences could not do, man has developed the project of a new submarine called «Yury Dolgoruky», which was founded in 1996. Thus Igor Dmitrievich was a realist and understood the danger of the situation. In order to resolve the situation, he decided to expand the scope of activities of the Bureau. So, it is suggested to its employees to develop and build not only boats, but also oil platforms, which by that time was already more popular. The scientist managed to sign a profitable contract with the firm Halliburton. Today Spassky developed oil platforms are widely used for oil production in the Okhotsk sea and Sakhalin.Spasskiy Igor Dmitrievich photo

The project

One of the most important projects of the Saviour – “Sea launch”. It was planned to develop a floating spaceport. In the end, he still was made from a modified oil platform. The spaceport was placed in the most appropriate place – the Equatorial Pacific ocean. It was the best conditions in order to run the boosters so as to maximize the rotational inertia of the Earth. Also it should be understood that the launching of rockets from here was 10 times cheaper than running on-site, offered by NASA. Spasskiy Igor Dmitriyevich was still the chief designer of marine and led the project.


In addition to standard projects, the scientist was engaged in unusual projects. He was invited to develop the project cargo submarine, which was year-round to be ready to perform different operations in the Arctic ocean. In addition, he was involved in the construction of the offshore ice-resistant platform, which would allow to extract oil from the ocean shelf. Despite the fact that the hero of our article was in charge of a very important and original projects, he was involved in and simple things like modernization of trams.Spasskiy Igor Dmitriyevich children

A Great achievement for him was the election of the General Director of the consortium, which was engaged in the construction of submarines for the Russian Navy. The submarine had nofor military purposes, was non-nuclear. The consortium consisted of CDB “ruby”, enterprise Admiralty shipyards and other shipbuilding companies. In addition to working for the state, was also created machinery for export to India, Poland and other countries.

What else did the hero of the article? Spasskiy Igor Dmitrievich, a photo of which is in the article, developed the submarine «Kursk». This was the last submarine class "Antaeus", which was awarded to the Russian Navy.

In August 2000, the submarine sank during exercises of the Northern fleet. The cause of flooding is the explosion of one torpedo, which resulted in further explosions element of the boat. The torpedo exploded due to the fact that the engine was a fuel leak. During the accident many people died but some sailors managed to survive, and they some time lived in the aft compartment. Rescue operations were ineffective due to bureaucratic delays. When rescuers finally reached the boat, all crew members were already dead.Spasskiy Igor Dmitrievich-academician

Rescue operations Spassky was a consultant. Some media wrote that he should bear full responsibility for the fact that aid has not arrived on time. There were also complaints on the design of the boat. However, the investigators who conducted the study indicated that the system plugs of a nuclear reactor worked very quickly and accurately, which helped to avoid a global catastrophe in the Barents sea.

Lifting the boat from the depths Bureau «Rubin». The whole of the boat was towed to a repair shipyard. Together with Spassky operation led by additional international company.
