Satellite services must be paid for, even if they are in the communications field. Otherwise, there is no incentive to improve. Yuri Borisov, the new Roskosmos CEO, said so.
These services are in high demand and most of them are free. I am convinced that the main result cannot be achieved when both the service provider and consumer do not enter into normal commodity money relations. He stated that both parties involved in such a scenario are not interested to improve services.
Borisov stated that in such a scenario, the service provider is content with all services and doesn’t work to make them better. Borisov stated that it is important to transition gradually to a commercial model for providing services.
“This is a well-established practice that is used almost everywhere in the world. We will soon be able to offer services for commercial use. In this scenario, both the producers and consumers will be bound to commodity-money relationships. He said that the delivery terms and quality of services should increase.
Satellite constellations can be used to provide communications services including broadband Internet access and navigation for civilian and military purposes. Satellites that can remotely sense the Earth are also needed for national economic purposes. They can be used to monitor farms, forests, and animals.
Hydrometeorological apparatus allows you to forecast the weather and study atmospheric phenomena. Earth monitoring from space can also be used to prevent and track both natural and man-made disasters and accidents.
