MOSCOW, March 26 (Itar-Tass) – An asteroid and comet security system will cost an estimated 30 billion rubles to set up, the deputy general director of the JSC Russian Space Systems (RSS), Anatoly Perminov, told the Info Space 2013 forum on Tuesday.
He said that Russia was already taking steps to create a system countering space threats.
“It is seen as a package solution addressing three issues: monitoring asteroids, meteorites and comets; keeping an eye on space junk and assessing ‘space weather’ factors, specifically, their impact on the operation of space, energy and transport facilities,” Perminov added.
He said that in tackling number one and two tasks on this list the RSS was cooperating with Roscosmos and the Central Research Institute of Machine Building (TsNIIMash).
“A future asteroid and comet security system will cost about 30 billion rubles to establish,” he concluded.
