In May 2004 RSCC began to develop unique ground infrastructure assets in the Far East and Siberia which today, in addition to offering a complete list of communications and broadcasting services, ensures control and monitoring of the RSCC on the Eastern arc of the geostationary orbit.
In May 2004 RSCC began to develop unique ground infrastructure assets in the Far East and Siberia which today, in addition to offering a complete list of communications and broadcasting services, ensures control and monitoring of the RSCC on the Eastern arc of the geostationary orbit. Over the past 10 years, high-class teams were established at the Zheleznogorsk and Khabarovsk SCC. The teams are capable of tackling a variety of tasks from deployment of communications VSAT-based networks to organizing transmissions of all-Russia digital TV and radio programs to the Far East and Siberia and supporting communications services for the President and the RF Government in the region.
We congratulate our colleagues on their first jubilee and wish them luck, professional victories and new accomplishments.
The Zheleznogorsk SCC technical complex makes it possible to support control and monitoring of telecommunications satellites in the orbital slots from 32°E to 154°E. The SCC also supports the following operations: acceptance tests and payload monitoring of the RSCC satellites operating in the С-, Ku- and L-bands; acceptance tests of VSAT user terminals; redundancy capability for transmissions of nation-wide digital TV and radio programming beamed to the Far East and Siberia; government communications in the eastern part of the Russian Federation; and provision of satellite-supported communications within the Siberian federal district.
As part of the RSCC fleet renovation, an automated system for monitoring and orbital measurements has been put in place, supporting simultaneous monitoring of five satellites of the Express-A and Express-AM series.
The backup mission control center monitors and controls the RSCC satellites throughout their post-launch lifecycle, as well as provides support to the Eutelsat mission control center in the event of an off-nominal situation during the service life of the Sesat satellite.
The Zheleznogorsk SCC also participates in the development of the regional platform called Information / Telecommunications and Space Technologies for Innovative Development of Siberia. The platform will make it possible to provide satellite-supported communications and broadcasting services in the Siberian federal district.
The key task of the Satellite Communications Center is transmission of the federal digital TV and radio programming package to the Far East and Eastern Siberia.
The Khabarovsk SCC supports communications services involving remote settlements in the extreme north, as well administrative outfits and enterprises in the Far East.
Via an optical fiber line the Khabarovsk SCC is connected to Rostelecom, the national operator of international and domestic long-distance communications.
The SCC hosts the satellite control hub (HUB iDirect) which supports satellite channels using VSAT satellite terminals based both on the star circuit and polygrid network over the entire territory of Russia’s Far East.
High standards of the SCC services are based on the use of state-of-the-art communications and measuring equipment, but also on the close interaction with the manufacturers of the satellite communications systems and active cooperation with the leading telecommunications companies in the region - Rostelecom, Chukotkasviazinform, Arctic Region Sviaz, and others.
