MOSCOW, June 11 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) plans to launch a series of satellites within the framework of the space science program, Roskosmos head Vladimir Popovkin said on Tuesday at a meeting of the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS).

According to him, the Russian Academy of Sciences “has been and will remain a generator of space science.” Russia has advanced from creating scientific instruments for space missions to integrated programs that solve specific problems.

“Spektr-R - is the first fruit. Its sequel will operate in the millimetre frequency range. The launch of the spacecraft is scheduled for 2019,” said Popovkin. Prior to that, he said, two satellites will be launched: one in the X-ray frequency range in 2014 and the other - in the ultraviolet range in 2016.
