JSC Starts Express-AM5 and Express-AM6 Manufacturing

On October 27, 2009 the JSC Academician M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems proceeded to the execution of the new contract signed with the state communications service provider Russian Space Communications Company (RSCC) for the manufacture of the Express-AM5 and Express-AM6 telecommunications satellites.

Following the results of the competitive tender, RSCC made a contract with the JSC ISS for the manufacture of Express-AM5 and Express-AM6 on August 12, 2009. According to the terms of the contract, the ISS is the prime contractor for the design, development, testing, pre-launch preparation and in-orbit commissioning of the Express-AM5 and Express-AM6 satellites.

The new spacecraft are bound to be a collaborative effort between the JSC ISS and its industrial partners. The satellites will allow building the necessary infrastructure to provide the country with available digital multiprogram television and radio broadcasting. Express-AM5 and Express-AM6 are also intended for the presidential mobile and governmental communication, multi-media services (telephony, videoconferencing, data transmission, the Internet) and VSAT networks.

The new satellites will carry C-, Ku-, Ka- and L-band transponders. Their projected service life is 15 years with the payload power consumption being 14 kW. Both spacecraft are scheduled for launch in 2012
