On March 29-30, 2017, the RSCC satellite communications system deployed in the Arctic region enabled the media to promptly organize coverage of the International Arctic Forum and the visit of Russia’s top officials to the Franz Josef Land archipelago.
On March 29-30, 2017, the International Arctic Forum The Arctic: Territory of Dialogue and the visit by top Russian officials to the Alexandra Land in the Franz Josef Land Archipelago were covered by the media with the help of the RSCC-provided broadband satellite communication channel. The channel was used by journalists for the timely transmission of their material to the Mainland.
Using its satellites, RSCC provides communication support to the Russian Arctic National Park research base located within the Franz Josef Land archipelago on the island of Alexandra Land. RSCC’s recent projects in the Arctic region include satellite communication services to the Atomflot’s nuclear icebreakers Yamal and 50 Years of Victory, which ensure the year-round operation of the Northern Sea Route (NSR). The vessels boast broadband access to the Internet and online video broadcasts. The RSCC-supported video transmission from the icebreaker 50 Let Pobedy made possible real-time safety monitoring of a trial vessel escort and mooring in the port of Sabetta (the Yamal-LNG project) to assist Сhristophe De Margerie, the first ice-class liquefied natural gas carrier. The ship is owned by PJSC Sovcomflot.
