Is the space industry in Russia going through hard times?

62
According to the information agency Interfax, the situation in the Russian space industry leaves much to be desired. It is to such conclusions that the leadership of the country arrived, Vice-Premier Yury Borisov told reporters today.

Borisov said that the state of the space industry is under the direct control of the Russian president, who has held two meetings in recent months on this issue.

In addition, according to sources, the leadership of the state corporation Roscosmos plans to make personnel changes at key enterprises of the rocket and space industry.

In particular, the post of head of the Progress Rocket and Space Center will most likely be taken by Dmitry Baranov, who previously worked at the same enterprise as Deputy General Designer. However, official confirmation of this information has not yet been reported.

The reshuffle of the leadership also does not avoid the Khrunichev Center and the RSC Energia, Interfax reports, citing an authoritative source in the rocket and space industry.

The delegation headed by Yury Borisov visited RSC Energia today. From the message press service "Roscosmos":
Dmitry Rogozin noted the importance of creating a project for the Soyuz-5 medium-launch vehicle complex as a stage in the formation of a super heavy-duty space rocket complex.


Is the space industry in Russia going through hard times?


Yury Borisov noted that plans for the period up to 2020 were discussed, including the implementation of the project of the manned ship "Federation", and added:
I think the team of Energia and Roskosmos understand what needs to be done in the near future, everyone is set to work constructively and improve the situation.


Apparently, this way today they are trying to solve the problems associated with violations identified by the Accounts Chamber. Recall that at the end of June, the Chairman of the Accounts Chamber, Alexei Kudrin, said that the state corporation revealed violations in the amount of 760 billion rubles, for some facts criminal cases were opened.

    The best times ended with the USSR, which is where the fortune-telling has come — they have not come, and so everything is obvious.

      moreover, they ended with the death of the Queen ..
      and since then - good by inertia, and bad by the whim of superiors.

        True, in the USSR there really was a slight decline after the triumph of the 60s, but I would not be so categorical at once. Yes, sometimes they were in too much of a hurry (the death of Komarov). But I think that not only "kicks from above" moved. People dreamed, people worked, people did. And that was the main thing, it seems to me. And then the 90s came ... It turned out to be problematic to work and do. Although the situation has improved since the 90s, the almost 30-year-old Angara with 2 launches, and LV accidents (a series of Proton accidents a couple of years ago), AMS (Mars-96, Phobos-Grunt) "grow" from here. ), satellites (the same "Angosat"), transferring dates for many years, compared with the initial plans (module "Science", CC "Federation") ....

        Therefore, I am very glad that upstairs they remembered about space (if this is really so)! At last! Surely they had been ill with their stupid Olympiads and World Cup, remembered about the future of mankind?! ...

          All available space technology is from the 60s.
          RN Soyuz, spacecraft Soyuz, RN Proton.
          Despite a lot of money thrown out in the 70s and 80s.
          It seems that from the late 60s purposefully washed up the space theme.

            Do not write nonsense. The development went on increasing, up to the 90s, and this is Zenith, Energy-Buran, the same accelerators of the alliances and protons you mentioned, plus deep space, you don’t need to remind about military subjects ... As the money ran out, so the space wilted , however, like everything else

    And how many more will leadership change? Maybe the problems need to be solved differently - for example, should our cosmonautics be considered a state priority, and it is in this area that the latest ideas and technologies that should be created specifically for development have grown to the maximum? And the fact that Vanka is being exchanged for Fedka, and then vice versa, all this hassle has not grown to benefit.

          They will be sawed in state hands until they turn blue, they will plant some - other saws will be uncovered, and space will remain a by-product of sawing. In that case, for me, it’s a terrible end than horror without an end.

        So create a private alternative, invest money and in a good way. And the rest, Mordvin 3 answered you and he is right ... there are too many people who want to make money for free and at the same time earn points for themselves before the Anglo-Saxons, having completely destroyed the space industry.

                Unmanned is a slag. You can start a beer can and admire it for a long time. (we have been launching such since 1957). But in April 2019 I will very closely monitor space (well, after 1961, of course). I just suspect that in March 2019 there will be some problems and the launch will be postponed. Get lost? wink

        Satellites are easy to calculate: 59 successful launches of Falcons (out of 61). Launches in 2017 and 2018 are about two each month. Each launch is usually a large (3 -9 tons) communications satellite. There were launches of 10 small satellites.

    It is necessary to create conditions for directly workers and designers, such that people's eyes would burn and the desire was to work and create. The fact that they change leaders is just a change of those who are well "warmed up" to the hungry and the angry. They will continue to steal according to the same schemes until they are removed again and so on ad infinitum, until Roscosmos is left with a small office of those who will organize agreements with the Chinese Americans or someone else to launch satellites into orbit to provide any then the needs of Russia.

    I would say that it is not just "not the best times" here, but "a cute furry animal".
    The second happened today! this year, the depressurization of the Soyuz this year (remember the first time in April, when the Americans reported it, after which we had to confirm). If trucks used to fall, now the manned ships have problems. And that's all, ahead of the launch of the manned Dragon in April 2019. Even if it flies not in April, but in December 2019, or even April 2020, the couch patriots will rejoice, but that doesn't matter anymore. In any case, for those who are in the subject, back in the 17th year it was clear that the 18th would be the last year of the monopoly in the delivery of foreigners.
    And then the next question: New Dragons and bad rumor about already crappy "Soyuz", and after all, not only we and the Americans fly to the ISS, there are also Canadians, Italians, Germans, etc. guests who see these "cracks" with their own eyes. It is here on the Earth that Rosskosmos is silent, having filled its mouth with water, even VO did not publish any material about the accident on the ISS in a day, and the cosmonauts see everything, unlike us, and they also draw conclusions.
    And the problem is that we are completely losing technology, there is no point in changing the leadership team, which wakes with a serious face stamping their feet, cover everyone with obscenities and effectively manage. The real work is in workshops where production is degrading.
    Now we are launching at least 4 "Soyuz" a year, like it or not, you have to constantly work not without problems, and the Americans will tear off a piece of the pie, so only 2 "Soyuz" wakes up, the rest as the "minibus" is filled. I am very afraid that then we will completely forget how to do serial production.
    In some organizations, there is no one to work stupidly, there are 2-3 75-85 year old pensioners left who no longer need anything but a quiet life.
    And you can't say it out loud, we have a "patriot" when you only praise and extol, and any criticism, any indication of weaknesses and shortcomings is already a "fifth column", "a protege of the State Department."
    I could tell you how the products were developed for the "Federation", everything turned out beautifully on digital drawings, awards, youth promotions, and how they embodied it in metal, it could not do without tears, it does not correspond to any technical specification, so Rogozin is right about the trampoline ...

      In workshops, with CADs, in laboratories - where the performers work. To organize the work of the performers and coordinate it, competent engineers are needed, not effective managers. You need to understand how and where to redistribute resources that are always limited. Effective managers have a different motivation for redistribution.
      Another motivation. This is one of the main reasons why the economy in Russia is not growing.

    Those. When our rockets at the start were falling like leaves in the fall, was everything good? And now they suddenly woke up that there were problems in the space industry. So that's it, it's too late to drink Borjomi. Not "the sign needs to be changed, but the girls." We rolled back to the 30s. It is necessary to search for young people again, train them in universities, and re-create design bureaus. And most importantly: to drive "effective managers" with a filthy broom. And do not let the cannon shot. And the effectiveness of managers should be assessed as follows: give 100 rubles and let them create a plant that makes a profit, and not as it is now: they will give a powerful plant, and they will knock down the locksmiths, sell the machines, and report on efficiency!

For what these clowns get such dibs, and even earn extra money in all the top companies, then vice, then vice and there they still row in your pocket. Eh Russia, you just do not understand the mind.

      "Under the control of the president" means that the president puts only his own people there. And theirs are the same ..., in general, like the president himself.
