The unified state program of space activities of Russia for the period 2021-2030 will be submitted for approval by the government by the end of this year, told Dmitry Rogozin, CEO of Roscosmos.
“The unified state program of space activities of Russia should be submitted to the government in its entirety by the end of this year, in order to have confirmed funding from 2021,” he said.
Before that, the government will agree on the subprograms that make up a single program. “This month we are submitting the most important remaining sections of the program for approval to the government,” Rogozin said.
The single program will include the Federal Target Program for the development of the GLONASS satellite system, a subprogram for the development of a super-heavy rocket and space complex, a program for creating a multi-satellite orbital constellation “Sphere”, sections related to the creation of ground space infrastructure at the Vostochny cosmodrome, investment projects for the development of new industrial complexes and modern production facilities …
“If we talk about the required amount of funding, then only the president can name the final figure,” Rogozin said.
At the same time, the head of Roscosmos noted that now the Russian space program will be built on the principle of the state armaments program – it will be adopted for 10 years in advance with adjustments every five years. “To avoid such a situation as we have now, when no one sees the horizon beyond 2025, when the current Federal Space Program is completed,” Rogozin said.
