ROSKOSMOS. Discussion of the  strategy for  development of the state corporation

On March 31, 2017, the State Corporation "ROSKOSMOS" held a meeting of the expert council of the Chairman of the Board of the Military Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation "On the Development Strategy of the State Corporation" ROSKOSMOS "for the period until 2025 and the prospect until 2030".
The meeting was opened by Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin, who outlined the main principles for the development of space activities of Russia and the state corporation "Roscosmos" for the future until 2030, and also noted that "the planning horizon should be much longer. Accepting the program until 2025 and for the future until 2030, we still need to think about the prospect until 2050. Then we will have a more understandable and systematic comprehensive view of what we have to do today and tomorrow."
The keynote speech was made by Igor KOMAROV, General Director of Roskosmos State Corporation; his co-rapporteurs were Viktor Khartov, General Designer for Automatic Space Systems and Complexes; Evgeni MIKRIN, General Designer for Manned Space Systems and Complexes; and Alexander MEDVEDEV, General Designer for Excavating and Ground-Based Space Infrastructure.
Igor KOMAROV spoke about the priorities of Roskosmos: "The state interests of the Russian Federation require a substantial expansion of the range of products and services for defense, development of the socioeconomic sphere, science and international cooperation. In this regard, ROSKOSMOS through the optimization of internal reserves, new ideas, the opportunities of the world and domestic markets should ensure the progressive development of the rocket and space industry, for which we plan to activate the following tools: new staff, optimization of the production potential and structure of the industry, development of commercial potential and improvement Regulatory and legal framework".
Then the General Designer of OAO Gazprom-Space Systems Nikolay Sevastyanov, the chairman of the National Technology Initiative Support Fund Evgeny Kuznetsov and the full member of the International Academy of Astronautics and the Russian Academy of Cosmonautics named him. K.E. Tsiolkovsky Vladimir BRANETS.
The chairman of the Presidium of the Expert Council of the Chairman of the Board of the Military-Industrial Commission of the Russian Federation, Mikhail REMIZOV, moderated the meeting.

Thanks. Google translate did a surprisingly good job on the text. Do you read Russian? Could you comment on the charts and presentation in the PDF?

The first slide is about GLONAS GNSS. They state that from 2021 onwards their satellites will cover the 66 % of Earth surface. The second line is the accuracy in meters globally and inside Russia. The third one is availability in complicated conditions in % again globally and inside Russia.

That's specifically referring to the KA satellites, basically the world compatible CMDA new codes.

Slide 6 is about future use of the ISS. It essentially confirms recent reports about new delays for the Multipurpose Laboratory Module (MLM). Launch now set for early 2018, with the Node Module slipping to late 2018/early 2019. The Science Power Module (NEM) should follow in mid-2019.
The further timeline given for Russian involvement in the ISS is :
- first half of 2020 -: decision on future use of the ISS
- early 2021 : start of construction of new modules in case the Russian segment is detached from ISS (as has been known for some time, the Russians are considering to detach the MLM/UM/NEM from the station in 2024 to form an independent Russian space station. New modules being considered are an airlock module and an inflatable module and that's probably what they're referring to here).
- early 2024 : end of cooperation in the ISS project 
- early 2028 : possible extension of cooperation on the station with NASA

To the right of the timetable there is a sentence saying a decision will be made in 2020 on "use of the ISS Russian segment beyond 2028".  Pretty confusing.... 
One of key tasks is to minimize government investments in the ISS by commercializing space station operations. This can be achieved by offering more Soyuz rides to ISS partners and tourists, selling space on cargo vehicles and conducting commercial experiments on the station.

Slide 7 is about future use of launch vehicles. Interesting to note here is that the maiden flight of the Zenit replacement is scheduled for late 2021/early 2022. This will initially fly from the Zenit pad at Baikonur under the name "Sunkar" in the framework of the Russian/Kazakh Baiterek venture. According to the slide, modifications of the Zenit pad "at the expense of Kazakhstan" are supposed to have begun in mid-2016. The same rocket is also expected to start flying from the Sea Launch platform in mid-2022 and will make its debut from the Vostochnyy cosmodrome under the name Feniks in mid-2034. It will fly from the same pad to be used for Russia's heavy-lift launch vehicle, which according to the chart is now expected to start flying in 2035. The HLLV will use a cluster of Feniks first stages and a cryogenic third stage being developed for the Angara-A5V.

Angara-A5P will fly from Vostochnyy with an unmanned Federatsia vehicle in late 2021, with a manned flight expected in late 2023 (no change from earlier timelines). Angara-A5V should become available in early 2028. Also note the first flight of a light launch vehicle with a reusable first stage from Vostochnyy in early 2031 with possible use of the Angara pad.  And finally it's interesting to see that the Soyuz-2 rocket is expected to remain operational beyond 2035, flying from all three cosmodromes.

A correction to my earlier post : the slide does NOT confirm recent reports about further significant delays for the MLM. It shows a launch in late 2017, which has been the target date for quite a while.

Interesting that they increased the size of the first stage and reduced the second. The Zenit first stage has always had a ridiculous T/W, due to also being used as the Energyia's boosters. That and the rail transport size limitations. Yes, to Baikonour you can send a 4.1m core, but that requires forbidding the transit of trains on the opposite track. And Voistochny has an even smaller limitation (3.8m x 25m).
So it seems that they have decided to bite the bullet and resort to air lifted cores (will 4.1m even fit within an AN-124?), and optimize it as a LV only. Which is interesting if it will also have to be used as the HLV first and second core.
