NOVOSIBIRSK, June 07 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin believes it is essential to step up the localization of production in all industries, and not just in aircraft-building and engineering.
“We have started doing that in aircraft-building at last, but why don’t we do the same elsewhere? Moreover, we keep complaining that we lack electronic components, in particular, radiation-resistant ones, which are in great demand from the national space agency Roscosmos and nuclear power corporation Rosatom,” Rogozin said at a full-scale session of the forum Tekhnoproom-2014 in Novosibirsk, West Siberia on Friday.
Rogozin said that over the past ten years the government had increased investment in developing the radio-electronic industry 100 times, but the proportion of domestically manufactured electronic components and the imported ones remained unchanged. This means that the spending was very ineffective, Rogozin said.
He believes that all companies bringing their high-technology manufactures into Russia should be obliged to guarantee at least 20-percent localization of production, and to eventually increase it to 60%
Rogozin said he had issued instructions to devise a plan for the localization of production of chipsets and navigation system modules. The measure will apply to not just navigation, but to all space services, including communication and remote sensing of the earth. Specifically he emphasized the need for expanding the use of the GLONASS navigation system. It might be possible to start with government-run transport and then to apply it to other spheres, such as the monitoring of cargoes on the way. Rogozin said that by 2020 the accuracy of the GLONASS signal would be increased to 60 centimetres from the current 2.8 meters.
