Russian State Corporation for Space Activities Roscosmos is considering the possibility of using decommissioned missile systems to launch civilian satellites into orbit, said the head of the Corporation Dmitry Rogozin.

According to him, Intercontinental ballistic missile Voevoda could be used for this purpose. This ballistic missile could be adjusted for launches of civilian spacecraft. Now this project is being discussed with the Ministry of Defense.

Rogozin believes that this method should be applied to all missiles that are going to be decommissioned. He expressed confidence that it is necessary to use the technology of "missiles full life-cycle" to get the maximum benefit from the missile, starting with the first stages of its design and production to the point of its disposal. Rogozon said that "the most important thing is not to do that under the pressure or the risk."
