MOSCOW, January 20 (RIA Novosti)
The expert council on Russia’s Aerospace Defense System (ADS) has proposed consolidating all the related defense-industry enterprises into a single holding, council executive director Boris Cheltsov said on Friday.
Priority should be given to establishing an ADS managing company and holding modeled on the Almaz-Antey air-defense corporation, United Shipbuilding Corporation and United Aircraft Corporation, he said.
The holding will work on projects for the ADS unified strategic command combining air, missile and space defenses, which was established in December 2011, Cheltsov said.
It combines the existing air defense and missile defense networks, missile early-warning systems and airspace monitoring systems under a unified strategic command.
