MOSCOW, August 3. /TASS/. Russia’s engine-making can be singled out into a separate subprogram of the country’s integrated state program for the defense sector’s development, Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said at a meeting with President Vladimir Putin on Monday.
This measure will help intensify the development of this industry and give up imports, the vice-premier said.
The Russian president agreed to examine the proposal.
"We have a proposal and request to support it. We propose combining technologies in ship and aircraft engine-building in a separate subprogram within the framework of the single state program for the development of the defense and industrial sector," Rogozin said.
"We’ll prepare it already by December this year," he added.
The Russian vice-premier said he had prepared a detailed report on this issue. "I would request you to give the relevant instruction," the vice-premier said, addressing the president.
Putin said the proposal on the subprogram stipulated the use of the same funds planned for allocation for the development of the defense and industrial complex as a whole, which actually meant expenditure re-arrangement.
"Yes, this will not require additional resources but will require additional organizational efforts," the vice-premier said.
"Go ahead," the president said.
The detachment of engine-making into a separate subprogram will help overcome existing difficulties, the vice-premier said.
"In this way, we could develop this family of engines at an advanced rate, which will cut our time on their development, strengthen the personnel potential and, of course, give us a possibility to normally save money, while planning production in our entire engine-making across the whole range of 9 to 35 tons. This means we’ll be able to solve all our problems," the vice-premier said.
Even though Russia is somewhat behind in this area, "it is in the top five group together with the United States, the United Kingdom, France and Germany" in the manufacture of engines of this level, the vice-premier said.
"We boast a full cycle of engine production, which includes not only the technologies of developing engines but also structural materials, software, microelectronics, high-temperature physics and many other things," the vice-premier said.
