MOSCOW, October 1 (Itar-Tass) — The space industry suffers from problems that were inherent in the sector 5-7 years ago, Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said in a live broadcast of the programme "Sunday Evening with Vladimir Solovyov" on the Russia-1 TV channel.
"All the equpment that malfunctioned over the past 18 months (there were seven setbacks in this country) was made not today or yesterday but much earlier. At present, we, unfortunately, encounter problems which were inherent in the space industry five, six, seven, and ten years ago," Rogozin said.
He emphasized that a technological backwardness of enterprises poses the biggest problem. His opinion is that a high quality of output can be achieved only provided there is "clarity of purpose in one's mind", a single technological policy, and new machine tools.
"It is essential to bring into being a different system of quality control when you monitor the fabrication route, not the end product," Rogozin said, adding that with this end in view the space industry should switch over to a new process equipment.
