Transfer of Express-AM22 to 80˚ East completed on 31 July 2015

RSCC have started testing the satellite systems at its new orbital position. From August 5, RSCC plans to begin services using the capacity of Express-AM22 from 80˚ E.

Ksenia Drozdova, RSCC Deputy Director-General for Business Development, notes that, “The satellite will be in high demand, above all, for TV content haulage from Russia’s center to the Far East, and for providing fixed-line telephony and satellite-supported broadband services”.

Also, RSCC are exploring the feasibility of using Express-AM22 steerable beams to meet the needs of customers in the Middle East and Central Asia.
