On 24 July, Vladimir Solntsev, Energia President, and Yuri Prokhorov, RSCC Director-General, signed an agreement to cooperate in the field of developing advanced communications and broadcasting satellite systems.


 Working together, the two companies intend to use more efficiently the resources they have in order to design such systems.


 “I am convinced that our joint efforts will make it possible to expedite implementation of state-of-the-art processes and standards to ensure appropriate quality and reliability of satellite-supported communications services. Our cooperation will serve the objective of further development of Russia’s infrastructure of satellite communications and broadcasting”, said Energia President, Vladimir Solntsev, following the signing ceremony.

 
For his part, Yuri Prokhorov, RSCC Director-General, stressed: “The agreement we have signed is called upon to spur implementation of the 2016-1025 program to develop the domestic orbital constellation of civilian communications and broadcasting satellites involving Russia’s leading space industry enterprises that have the requisite knowhow and unique competencies in the area of space hardware.”


The plan is (i) to develop jointly the technical requirements regarding prospective systems of satellite-supported communications and broadcasting, including those for RSCC, (ii) to assess feasibility of applying new requirements to future communications and broadcasting satellites using the R&D and production potential of Russian space industry, and also (iii) draft proposals regarding the use of prospective domestic satellite launch systems.


Among those contributing to the development of new spacecraft will be Energia specialists who have attended training programs at Airbus D&S under the Express-series project.

 

OAO RSC Energia is a leading company of Russia’s space industry, the principal entity for manned space systems. The Corporation is engaged in developing automated space and rocket systems (launch, and inter-orbit transport), and hi-tech systems for various purposes unrelated to space activities. In August 2014, Vladimir Lvovich Solntsev became the head of the Corporation.

The Russian Satellite Communication Company (RSCC) is the Russian state satellite operator whose spacecraft provide a global coverage. RSCC was founded in 1967 and belongs to the ten largest world satellite operators in terms of satellites and orbital slots. The company possesses the largest satellite constellation in Russia. Satellites located in the orbital arc from 14 West to 145 East and cover the whole territory of Russia, the CIS, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, the Asia Pacific region, North and South America, and Australia.
