MOSCOW, August 5 (Itar-Tass) - Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin stated Roskosmos top managers did not have a clear policy of developing the rocket-space sector.
“Top managers of space sector lack specialists, who have experience of strategic planning for a facility producing of technically complicated rocket-space equipment, including in the field of its reliability,” he told participants in a special meeting, devoted to investigation of reasons of the Proton-M’s accident on July 2.
Besides, Rogozin stressed the functions of a client, producer and operator of space systems had not been separated as yet.
“We are also lacking major political objectives for the space industry: what we are expecting from the space, what tasks - global, political, or pragmatic - we are setting for ourselves.”
The Deputy Prime Minister summed up “we have had much paperwork on this, including those which passed the governmental filter.” “No result, anyway,” he stressed, adding that every time a space program is being formed, a “Why?” should be a must.
