The specific decision was taken at a meeting of chief executives of enterprises operating in the space industry in the city of Zheleznogorsk, central Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk territory. Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin chaired the meeting.
The council should be created so that each designer “will not invent his own high-tech space ‘bicycle’, will be able to talk to each other and to find universal solutions in their work.”
“Say, spacecrafts should not number one thousand, but should be tenfold fewer. Thanks to this we will reduce our dependency from foreign supplies of high-quality micro-and radio-electronics,” Rogozin added.
“So, we will provide our country with high-quality television, qualitative communication means, cartography, Earth remote sensing, geological prospecting from the outer space and will resolve military tasks. In general, we need to restore “hearing, vision and smell” of our army, aerospace defence and strategic nuclear forces,” Rogozin noted.
Russia should build up production of military satellites and telecommunications satellites, making an emphasis on import substitution, the deputy premier said earlier in the day. Russia should become “a highly skilled horse rider” on the market of space services, but this market should be primarily created in the homeland, Rogozin added.
