JSC "Information Satellite Systems" Academician MF Reshetnev "will create three advanced telecommunications spacecraft" Express-AM8 "," Express-AT1 "and" Express-AT2 "for the Federal State Unitary Enterprise" Russian Satellite Communications. "

The tripartite contract providing design, development, manufacture, testing, preparation for the launch and commissioning of on-orbit satellite "Express-AM8", "Express-AT1" and "Express-AT2," signed on September 22. Customer three telecommunications satellites is a national satellite communications operator Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Russian Satellite Communications." Future satellites with a 15-year term of active service will be set up in the JSC "Information Satellite Systems" Academician MF Reshetnev "based on the platform of the middle class families of" Express-1000. " The main sub-contractor JSC "ISS" on the repeater and antennas within this project is the European company Thales Alenia Space. Payload created TAS, will be installed on all three spacecraft.
Communications satellite "Express-AM8" will be displayed in the orbital position of 14 ° W Satellite power allocated to payload be 5.9 kW. On board the spacecraft will be installed 24 active C-band transponders providing coverage area
Europe, Africa and America, 16 active Ku-band transponders providing coverage across Europe, Asia, Africa, North and South America, as well as 2 active L-band transponders.
The spacecraft broadcast of "Express-AT1" will be displayed in the orbital position of 56 ° E Satellite power allocated to the payload to be about 5.6 kW. On board the spacecraft will be installed 32 active Ku-band transponders providing coverage of western and eastern parts of Russia.
The spacecraft broadcast of "Express-AT2" will be displayed in the orbital position of 36 ° E Satellite power allocated to the payload to be about 3 kW. On board the spacecraft will be set 16 Ku-band transponders providing coverage western part of Russia.
National satellite communications operator Russian Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Russian Satellite Communications" is for the JSC "ISS" is the main customer of telecommunications spacecraft. The history of cooperation between the companies has more than 30 years. Over the years the specialists of JSC "Information Satellite Systems" Academician MF Reshetnev "commissioned by the RSCC satellites were created series" Horizon "," Display "," Ekran-M "," Express "," Express-A "," Express-AM ", which provided television and radio broadcasting in the territory of Russia and other regions.
The signing of the agreement on the creation of spacecraft "Express-AM8", "Express-AT1" and "Express-AT2" is a continuation of the strategic cooperation between the Russian company "Information Satellite Systems" Academician MF Reshetnev "and a European company Thales Alenia Space. As part of a more than 15-year partnership they have been co-developed communications satellite SESAT for an international operator Eutelsat, 4 satellite "Express-A" and 6 satellite "Express-AM" for Russian operator Federal State Unitary Enterprise "Russian Satellite Communications." The companies are working together on projects spacecraft AMOS-5 and TELKOM-3 for Israel and Indonesia. In addition, cooperation between the two companies continues in the field of satellite relay (Project KA-repeaters "Luch-5A", "Luch-5B", "Luch-4") and Satellite Geodesy (surveying spacecraft project "Geo-IK-2").
