VIth All-Russian Scientific and Technical Conference with International Participation on FOCAL PROBLEMS OF SPACE-ROCKET HARDWARE

28 june 2019

Legendary designer of space-rocket hardware, RAS member D. I. Kozlov founded in Kuibyshev – now Samara – one of the most brilliant scientific schools. Its fundamental research and developments covered the field of rocket production, spacecraft building, and Earth remote sensing and served as a basis for creation of new research areas in geodesy and cartography, biology and medicine, materials science and high energy physics; development and creation of new information technologies and many others.


The Conference aims at summarizing accumulated experience in the field of scientific research, design, manufacture and operation of light-, medium- and heavy-lift launch vehicles, earth observation systems, sharing of mutual experience by space hardware developers, domestic and foreign scientists and experts of the aerospace industry, as well as human resource development for the aerospace industry.
