WASHINGTON, October 1. /TASS/. The U.S. Air Force command intends in early November to give recommendations over the refusal to use Russian rocket engines RD-180 which are particularly applied for satellite launches now, Air Force Lieutenant-General Ellen Pawlikowski said in an interview with Reuters.
She affirmed that many American companies said they wanted to participate in a new programme over launches of American rockets. Such criteria as reliability of rocket engines and their acceptable cost should be combined in development of new rocket engines so that they would be able to compete with Russian counterparts. U.S. companies United Launch Alliance, Aerojet Rocketdyne and SpaceX are among those who want to develop rocket engines.
