Russian Space Industry to Double Output by 2020 – Program

MOSCOW, January 12 (RIA Novosti) – An ongoing reform of Russia’s ailing space industry should double its output by 2020, according to a new state program published on Saturday.

The increase should give Russia a 16-percent share in the space technology market by 2020, up from the current 10.7 percent, said the program, available on the website of Russia’s Federal Space Agency.

Goals outlined in the program also include creation of the new Angara launch vehicle, development of the Vostochny space port in the Russian Far East and improvements to the Glonass satellite navigation system.
