The deputy head of the Russian Federal Space Agency said that Russia and the United States discussed the possibility of increasing the efficiency of cooperation at ISS.
Russia and the United States discussed the possibility of increasing the efficiency of cooperation at the International Space Station (ISS), including the need to optimize the docking standards, Sergei Savelyev, the deputy head of the Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos), said Wednesday.
"[The sides] discussed issues aimed at improving the efficiency of cooperation at the ISS, first of all, and future joint projects," Savelyev told reporters following talks with the management of the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
Russian and US representatives have agreed in particular to promote the activities of the joint working groups, he added.
"This concerns the optimization of the docking standards and others to approach the prospect of joint work on the lunar orbit," Savelyev explained.
A single docking interface is needed so that any ship could dock with the station, in particular, taking into account that over several years new US space ships will be built, he specified.
