Rostec ready to assist Turkey in space agency development

Rostec is ready to expand its cooperation with Turkey in creating and developing the republic's space agency. Earlier, the Turkish satellite Turksat-4A was launched in cooperation with Rosoboronexport (part of Rostec).

Rostec is actively developing the space industry and introducing advanced technologies in various areas of space exploration. The engines manufactured by UEC put Soyuz carrier rockets into orbit. Technodinamika produces life support systems for pilots and astronauts, including the Orlan-MKS space suit and the latest "space" parachute system. Optical devices designed by Shvabe sense the earth's surface from satellites, and are also used in the largest observatories in the world. RT-Chemcomposite creates unique composite materials that can withstand ultra-high temperatures and heavy loads.

"Rostec and its Turkish partners have had a mutually beneficial relationship in various industries for a long time. We certainly welcome our partners' intent to develop the space industry," said Viktor Kladov, director for International Cooperation and Regional Policy Department of the State Corporation. "Rostec has a wide range of competences and extensive expertise in developing the space industry, and we are ready to expand and strengthen cooperation in this sphere."

In addition, through Rosoboronexport and in the interests of foreign customers, Russian aerospace industry enterprises create and launch spacecraft for various purposes, make ground control complexes, complexes for receiving and processing data from satellites, and provide foreign partners with maps created based on space images. Specialists from partner countries learn how to carry out thematic processing and analysis of data obtained by remote sensing of Earth, with support from Rosoboronexport.

Rosoboronexport may suggest unique comprehensive projects to partners, as in the case when the first Malaysian astronaut Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor was sent to the ISS as part of an offset agreement to the contract for supplying Su-30MKM fighters.

Overall, Rosoboronexport has assisted in putting over 30 spacecraft from 14 countries into relevant orbits, including in the interests of the UK, Germany, Italy, China, Norway, Sweden, and the European Space Agency.
