TULA, January 20, 23:33 /ITAR-TASS/. Specific proposals to set up the strategic aerospace defence systems holding will be worked out in the next few weeks, Russian Deputy Premier Dmitry Rogozin told reporters. “The President has made instructions to work on this; proposals came from the head of the Federal Space Agency, there was an initiative of the defence minister and the instruction of the government and the Military Industrial Commission at the government. In a few weeks’ time we will refer to the President several variants of dealing with the matter,” the deputy premier said.
Rogozin noted that the aerospace defence system consists of two parts - information systems and fire systems. The information systems have the task to detect the launch of a missile attack against Russia and give the coordinates of the attack. Then the fire systems must function to hit missiles at the approach to Russia. The information systems are subdivided into the ground-based and space groups. “Various organizations now deal with all components of aerospace defence,” the deputy premier said. “For instance, the RTI Systems, a private company, part of the ASK System, is responsible for the ground-based information group while the Berg Institute and the Kometa corporation deal with the space group. Almaz-Antey air defence corporation is, first of all, engaged in fire systems of aerospace defence regarding distant interception. All this must be combined in a unified complex,” the deputy premier said. Rogozin believes this is complicated by the fact that both state and private corporations are involved. So, there is a need for a compromise between proprietors and managers, and this should be achieved within one technological solution.
