SatComRus 2017 in Moscow took on a celebratory feel as Russian satellite operator Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) celebrated its 50th anniversary. However, the underlying theme of the event was how Russian space companies could build for a more prosperous future. It was interesting that SpaceX was mentioned a number of times from different speakers at the event in Moscow two weeks ago as both an inspiration, and an example of a space company setting a new agenda.
On November 4, 2017, RSCC celebrates its 50th anniversary. RSCC handles a satellite constellation of 12 spacecraft, as well as five teleports. Clayton Aldo Vallabhan speaks to RSCC Director General Yuri Prokhorov to learn more about the company’s activities and market vision.
The two companies, RSCC a Russian and Chronosat GmbH a European company, signed an agreement while attending AfricaCom 2017 stipulating an increased use of RSCC’s Express-AM7 satellite capacity by the European company. The agreement is worth $14 million over five years.
The Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) celebrates its 50-year anniversary this year in a key landmark for one of the oldest companies in our sector.

Russia Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) has completed compression equipment upgrades at its Shabolovka Technical Center in Moscow. The compression system is part of the RSCC’s own technology platform, enabling the company to provide a one-stop shop service to broadcasters.
With the launch in February 2016 of the Express-AMU1 satellite, Russia's largest commercial satellite fleet operator completed its much-delayed fleet renovation program planned between 2009 and 2015. RSCC has suffered from Russian Proton rocket delays and failures more than any other telecommunications satellite fleet operator.
Via Satellite’s Satellite Executive of The Year (SEOTY) is the industry’s most prestigious individual award. The winner will be celebrated at SATELLITE 2017, always one of the highlights of the event. It is time to introduce the six nominees to win the award for 2016
The Russian space market is undergoing a period of change, as the industry faces up being a major part of the country’s overall economy. Space is intrinsically linked to Russia’s DNA, and new innovation will be needed for the industry to grow and prosper.
Russian state-owned FSS operator RSCC is looking to hire a bank to arrange the financing for ordering two new communications satellites. Express-80 and Express-103 will be built by ISS Reshetnev with payloads from Thales Alenia Space, and placed at 80E and 103E, respectively, in 2019 to provide telecoms and broadcasting services in С, Ku, and L- bands across Russia, CIS and Asia.
Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) will deploy new ground infrastructure facilities within the Dubna Space Communications Center (SCC), the company announced today. Working with fellow satellite operator Eutelsat, these new facilities are designed to provide communication services using Ka-band capacity on the Express-AMU1 satellite, which is located at 36 degree east.
Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) had a busy year in 2015, having launched new satellites that brought the company to new international markets while simultaneously ramping up available capacity to Russia. With the launches of Express AM8 in September 2015, and Express AMU1 in December that same year, the company branched out into Latin America, Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia. RSCC also increased new Ka-band services and began offering more services for broadband, corporate communications, Comms-On-The-Move (COTM) and broadcasting. The Russian economy has had some well-publicized struggles, which did impact RSCC, as have launch failures with the Proton rocket. However RSCC continues to grow and expand. More recently, the company has begun considering satellites in High Elliptical Orbits (HEO). In an interview with Via Satellite, Yuri Prokhorov, director general at RSCC discussed the company’s recent investments, market strategies and goals going forward.
