The head of Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin explained that the need for the revival of the Russian space industry. He said this during the launching ceremony of hull Assembly modules, payloads for Russian satellites at the Yaroslavl radio plant, reports TASS.
According to him, for the revival of the Russian space is possible only with the involvement of private investors. In addition, Russian companies that produce satellites, must move on to mass production to “ensure our great country unified communications, unified navigation”.
“We will discuss with the AFC [“System”], in which form it may be, but I think that, most likely, will go on creation of joint venture. We expect Sistema and its subsidiaries will be able to provide the Russian space Agency to perform such great tasks as going to mass production of spacecraft,” — said Rogozin.
At the end of June Rogozin compared the space with religion and presented the “ten commandments of the state Corporation” — the principles that will form the basis of “Roscosmos” under his leadership. They include, in particular, the control over execution of the state defense order (according to Rogozin, it is to be understood as “our father”), the direct control of the orders, the establishment of the office of technical customer and the formation of a unified technical policy of the industry.
