July 16 at 3.16 MSK from the launch complex area 200 Baikonur cosmodrome launch of a space rocket "Proton-M" with the upper stage "Breeze-M" and satellite "KazSat-2" (Republic of Kazakhstan), "OS-2" ("ECJ -3 ") (United States).
After separating from the third stage of the launch vehicle upper stage "Breeze-M" continues to satellite placement into orbit.
The contract for the use of the carrier rocket "Proton-M" to launch satellite "KazSat-2" and "OS-2" concluded the company International Launch Services Inc. (ILS). Controlling stake in the company owned by ILS Roscosmos — Federal State Unitary Enterprise "State Research and Production Space Center Khrunichev", which is a developer and manufacturer of "Proton" and the upper stage "Breeze-M" and SC "Kazsat."
Spacecraft KazSat-2 is designed to provide television broadcasting and transmission of data in a satellite communication system KazSat in the Republic of Kazakhstan, the countries of Central Asia and the central part of Russia, as well as to meet the needs of Kazakh satellite operators.
Spacecraft KazSat-2 is based on a unified space platform "Yacht" in the unpressurized performance and a modular design: the module unified space platform and payload module.
KazSat-2 belongs to the category of small satellites — the mass of the satellite is 1272 kg.
Service systems provide work space platform onboard repeater complex. The structure of service systems include:
• control system;
• telekomandnaya system;
• means of electricity;
• propulsion system;
• Housing (aggregate panels, power cylinder);
• solar panels;
• a means of separating the spacecraft and the transition of the system;
• means of thermal control.
The payload consists of:
• onboard repeater complex;
• means to ensure thermal regimes MO;
• elements of the design;
• unit of electrical and data interface.
