In order to remain at the forefront, you need to apply new developments from other fields and apply only the most modern equipment, said Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.
"We need to move exclusively to digital design and prediction of similar kind of situation to apply the experience I've gained in other industries, for example in the aircraft industry, and, of course, to accelerate the transition to modern boosters like Angara, gradually abandoning the "Proton" - quoted Rogozin RIA Novosti. This solution can reduce the number of emergency cases with domestic spacecraft.
While the need to establish the causes of the crash of the Proton, since the launches of carrier rockets of the same type cannot be continued. The conclusions of the special Commission will be granted to foreign partners of Russia.
