Status of Express-AM6 Satellite

After reconfiguring the payload of the Express-AM6 spacecraft (53 ° E) on March 25, 2020, Ka-band transponders were shut off.

The cutoff was due to the off-nominal performance of the satellite’s thermal control system liquid circuit, which made it impossible to further operate the satellite in full configuration.

Currently, RSCC is working together with the operator companies concerned to develop options for transferring users of the Ka-band VSAT networks to the other spacecraft
