From 18 - 22 March 2013 the RSCC delegation was participating in Satellite 2013, the international conference and exhibition held in Washington D.C. RSCC exhibits featured prospective satellites to be orbited in the next two years, including Express-АМ7 and Express-АМ8.  

«Within the next two years RSCC will for the first time have the capacity to offer full-range satellite services in Latin America, Southern Asia and Africa. We are boosting partnership relations with major operators and regional companies, and on that basis offering services under turnkey arrangements. Our solutions have been met with interest in the banking sector and among mobile operators and TV platforms. Our participation in Satellite 2013 has been very important for promoting our services and sorting out our opportunities in the regions. We always have very busy negotiations schedules at this annual event”, says General Director RSCC Yuri Prokhorov. RSCC interest in increased sales in its new areas of operation was also stressed in his interview for Via Satellite (USA) by Sergei Tsekhmistrov, Deputy-Chief of RSCC TV and International Sales.

Being one of the world’s ten prime satellite operators, RSCC has been traditionally invited by the annual Satellite conferences to discuss major current trends and prospects of satellite communications in specific regional markets. This time at the panel “The Next Big Four: Extending the Footprint of Communications via Satellite” Andrei Kirillovich, Director, Department for Integrated Services and Comprehensive Projects presented RSCC’s plans to expand its constellation in the period through 2015. He told the audience of how the constellation responds to the changing status and demands of today’s Russian market, and described the specifics of certain satellite communications services in Russia including in the Ка-band. Kirillovich noted that RSCC is building its renewable constellation on the basis of optimized combinations of small, medium, and heavy satellites, and with due regard for the characteristics of their orbital slots. The approach was widely supported by such leading international operators as Hispasat, Arabsat, JSAT, Star One, and Optus Satellite.

In the course of negotiations and visits to a number of companies during Satellite 2013, RSCC and its international partners have reached agreements on further cooperation in using and promoting the capacity of the existing and upcoming RSCC satellites, as well as on cooperation in building new satellites and developing networks based on VSAT equipment and technology.
