Overview

"The Russian Federal Space Agency (Russian: Федеральное космическое агентство России Federal'noye kosmicheskoye agentstvo Rossii), commonly called Roscosmos (Роскосмос Russpace) and abbreviated as FKA (ФКА) and RKA (РКА), is the government agency responsible for the Russian space science program and general aerospace research. It was previously the Russian Aviation and Space Agency (Russian: Российское авиационно-космическое агентство Rossiyskoe aviatsionno-kosmicheskoe agentstvo, commonly known as "Rosaviakosmos"). It was established first and it changed its name on February 25, 1992.
"The Soviet space program did not have central executive agencies. Instead, its organizational architecture was multi-centered; it was the design bureaus (OKB, transliteration from "Опытное конструкторское бюро" Opytnoye Konstruktorskoye Buro, meaning Experimental Design Bureau) and the council of designers that had the most say, not the political leadership. The creation of a central agency after the separation of Russia from the Soviet Union was therefore a new development."
