Strategic Partnership of Energia and Boeing in Space
Monday 25 September 2017, 16:45 – 17:30
Location: Adelaide Convention Center – Hall D
The International Space Station (ISS) utilization is a key point of the ISS partners’ human spaceflight program for the next decade. Energia and Boeing are the primary contractors and developers of Russian and US segments of the ISS, correspondingly. They cooperate in the area of the ISS elements integration and utilization, ensuring operation and maintenance of the onboard facilities and systems. The companies will continue cooperation aboard the ISS during the term of the station’s existence in the Low Earth Orbit (LEO).
On the other hand, they both face the future of human space flight and cooperate in development of a variety of novel space systems and complexes including: Cis-Lunar habitats, docking systems of new generation for spacecraft, new efficient solar arrays, and also in the area of commercial flights into the LEO.
The philosophy of cooperative efforts of the both companies is: careful selection of the best (primarily simple and reliable) technical solutions, flexibility at designing and development of the space infrastructure’s elements, application of new technologies at their manufacturing. All these will ensure reliability and effectiveness of the space systems operation and utilization.
The mentioned above topics will be discussing with participation of Mr. Vladimir Solntsev, Director General of RSC Energia and Mr. James Chilton, Senior Vice-President of Boeing.
