Russia, Europe eye broader space cooperation - space corporation chief

Europe is an interesting partner for Russia's United Rocket and Space Corporation (ORKK), its Director General Igor Komarov told a news conference at the International Aerospace Exhibition ILA 2014 in Berlin on Tuesday.

"Intensive work is underway in the sphere of Russia and Europe's space cooperation," he said, noting that a number of promising agreements had already been or would be signed at the exhibition and many contracts were under negotiation.

"This is an important stage for us in the development of cooperation with Europe," Komarov said.

In particular, the Russian JSC Information Satellite Systems Reshetnev Company and the European aircraft-manufacturing consortium Airbus Group had signed a framework agreement on supplying the Russian partner with attitude control and stabilisation equipment for space vehicles.
