On 25 May, at the 12th Bankovskoye Delo prize delivery ceremony held in Moscow, RSCC was given a prize in the Best International Project nomination for developing a high-tech satellite communications system based on Express-AM7.
RSCC has done the project in conjunction with Vnesheconombank. The objective of the project was to ensure state-of-the-art communications and broadcasting services using Express-AM7 as follows: TV and radio broadcasting, including under the Federal Target Program “Development of TV and Radio Broadcasting in the Russian Federation in 2009-2018”, broadband connectivity, access to internet and multimedia services, telephony, and global mobile connectivity for the Office of the President and the Government. The new satellite for communications and broadcasting was built in cooperation with Airbus D&S. It has been in operation in the GEO orbit since 2015, enabling RSCC to address the task of eliminating digital inequality within Russia and providing Russian residents with up-to-date TV and radio services.
