The first six communication and remote sensing satellites to be put in space under the Sfera program mentioned by Russian President Vladimir Putin during his question-and-answer session on June 7, 2018 will be put in space three years from now, Andrei Tuylin, Director General of the Russian Space Systems OJSC (affiliated with Roscosmos), told TASS.

“This is a rather complex task. The three years we have for coping with technical and technological problems is a very tight deadline,” Tuylin said, asked when the first satellite might be put in space. At first a demonstrator consisting of a satellite cluster fragment linked with ground infrastructures will be created.

“For now we plan to test only a fragment consisting of six satellites,” he said.
