According to TASS, Yuri Borisov (Director General of Roskosmos), who has recently succeeded Dmitry Rogozin, the plan is to make one spacecraft – a satellite each day after transitioning to mass production.
Borisov says “At the moment we are producing 15 satellites a year, technically it is possible to increase production to 40. Even this isn’t enough. We plan to assemble one satellite every day as we move to mass production..
Although against the backdrop of some foreign companies putting hundreds of their satellites into orbit, such successes may seem relatively modest, according to Borisov, for mass production on such a scale, a “radical restructuring” of the entire industry will be necessary.
It is essential to make sure that all participating enterprises are ready for scientific, technological, and production, as well as reorganize logistics in new ways with related industries and train new employees.
“We expect that starting from 2026, when these works are carried out and the necessary production capacities are prepared, we can gradually reach the declared indicators of the serial production of Russian satellites”Borisov claimed.
Earlier, during the “Team of the Future” industry forum, the head of Roscosmos emphasized that the situation with the creation of a satellite in 18 months is “no good” and noted that the backlog in this matter should be recognized.
