New Russian satellite Express-AM5

36
As the INTERFAX.RU, the specialists of the Information Satellite Systems Company (ISS, Zheleznogorsk) conducted successful orbital tests of the Express-AM5 telecommunications spacecraft.


According to the press service of the ISC, the main purpose of the satellite is digital broadcasting, provision of mobile government and presidential communications, as well as the provision of a package of multi-service services in the Far East and Siberia.

The tests of the Express-AM5 in orbit were carried out in two stages. The first to be tested was a module of service systems that are responsible for the life support of the satellite, as well as its position in outer space. Then the payload communication channels were tested.

It is worth noting that currently Express-AM5 is the most powerful spacecraft created by ISS. It is based on the Express 2000 heavy-duty platform with a power payload of 15 kW. The satellite is equipped with 10 antennas and 84 transponders that operate in four frequency bands.

    I understand that this is not a fundamentally new satellite but a modernization.

        And very necessary! Not the Chinese, but the Russians should populate the Far East! And the television there should be RUSSIAN, not Chinese! And the Chinese? ... Partners. God willing - allies. But not the owners in the Far Eastern land !!!

      It is a communications satellite in geostationary orbit. It is designed to provide digital broadcasting, telephony, video conferencing, data transmission, Internet access, to create VSAT networks, as well as for mobile government and presidential communications.

      What is new there? Repeaters are made in Canada. I doubt that Canadians will sell us advanced equipment.
      Communication satellites have not been produced from scratch in Russia for a long time.

        Yes, it doesn’t matter, the main thing is that something is being done, Russia's space work must move and live at all costs. When the world transfers to thermonuclear production of electricity, it is critical for the stable development of mankind that the supply of helium-3 from the Moon are not concentrated in one hand, any monopoly leads to stagnation and decline.
        As long as there are 3 major candidates for suppliers - USA, China and the Russian Federation, if India and Japan join, it is even better.
        Today we are observing a very robust tendency for the development of a multipolar world order system, and it is important that the world remains a multipolar one.
        Over the past 20 years, we have clearly seen economic and scientific stagnation as a result of unipolarity, and we cannot allow it to continue (no matter under whose authority), otherwise we risk strangling \ depleting the planet before we learn how to repair, replenish and replace its resources with alternative means.

      I understand that this is not a fundamentally new satellite but a modernization.
      In 2014, six more satellites are planned to be launched: Express-AM6, Express-AT1, Express-AT2, Express-AM4R, Express-AM8, and Express-AM7.
      The spacecraft has 84 transponders in four frequency bands. Today it is the most powerful Russian telecommunications satellite. The total platform power is about 15 kW. Its mass is about 3400 kg.
      Express-AM5 will create the necessary infrastructure to provide the population of the Far East and Siberia with affordable multi-program digital television and radio broadcasting, including high-definition television.
      The spacecraft is also designed to solve the problems of mobile presidential and government communications, broadband Internet access, the provision of a package of multiservice services (digital broadcasting, telephony, video conferencing, data transmission) and to create communication networks based on VSAT technology.
      Express-AM5 is the first spacecraft on the Express-2000 heavy-class platform. It was manufactured by M.F. Reshetneva "together with the Canadian company MDA and the Federal State Unitary Enterprise" Radio Research Institute "by order of the Federal State Unitary Enterprise" Space Communication ".
      The satellite was created taking into account forecasts for the development of the domestic market for satellite communications and broadcasting services in accordance with the federal target program “Development of broadcasting in the Russian Federation for 2009-2015.” as part of the federal space program of Russia for the period until 2015

      Who knows where this house is?
      immediately recalled how in the Soviet years, during the construction of five-story buildings, they laid out mosaics on various topics by analogy with this one.
      But if in every city there appears at least one such house, it’s like a visual textbook of new Russian history. Significant events should be celebrated in this way for decades.

      The import share in it is unknown)))
      With such Western sanctions that we now want to introduce against us, that is, Russia, in the near future it will begin to refuse to import electronics and other things, and it will begin to replace domestic products.
      It is necessary amers. somehow say that in Russia there is such a saying
      "every cloud has a silver lining" although I doubt they will understand anything from it.

        Rostec creates a new holding, United Instrument-Making Corporation. It is planned to include about 50 of the largest enterprises of the Russian radio-electronic industry for defense and civilian purposes, ITAR-TASS reports citing sources in the state corporation.

        According to sources, the creation of a new corporation will be officially announced on April 29, "but in fact the new structure has already been created." One of the sources claims that the new holding will unite four defense enterprises: Avtomatika, Vega, Sozvezdie Concerns and Management Systems companies.

        The new corporation will be headed by Alexander Yakunin, who previously worked in the Ministry of Industry and Trade and Rostec.

        And now it’s starting to refuse ... For 10 years now, I’ve been tormented by why the state will not create just one factory for the production of semiconductor products using the latest technologies, not funny 65 nm. in Zelenograd without development potential, and at least 45 nm. with a prospect of 20 or lower? Dough of the oil and gas sea in the bins, and one production could provide all critical industries, space, defense, etc. There used to be a ban on the supply of such equipment, but it was removed a few years ago, now it will be introduced again and we will suck on a paw.

          China, Taiwan, Malaysia, Korea - release, it is time for us too to make microcircuits already. Plants to build, so that no imports. We’re not stupider than the Chinese and other peoples, but we’re buying microchips. We need to fix it, today it’s a partner, tomorrow it’s not known.

      Gagarin .... What is the proportion of imported components in it?

      A week ago on TV 24 an interview was given by a representative from the military-industrial complex on electronic, (I don’t remember the name). He said that all modern products that carry secret data,
      are made only on the Russian element base.

    By the way, in the subject matter. One of the reasons for the fall of our satellites is poor-quality components, including foreign ones.

    It seems that our current authorities miss (missed, do not give attention, etc.) to such an aspect of statehood as PROPOGAND, in its best sense.
    I won’t talk about the Goebelskaya one, which is very significant for the inhabitants of that Germany, about the Stalinist one, which turned the country into an agitation poster. I mean that we NEVER and NEVER promote OUR values.
    What we have: "Rushu-today" and that's it ...
    Successes and achievements are practically not promoted either in the news on TV, or in the movies, or in street "brand mauers", or on the Internet ...
    On TV - all the "life of the stars", "Malyshevs", and "bandit Petersburg". Not a word of WHAT they built, what they created, what they raised ...
    Only if VVP or LADIES where they arrived - and we find out about a new plant or an oil platform, and so - "they caught a swindler" (but never put him in prison), "the star raised twins in a test tube" ...
    It is necessary to recreate the Ministry of PROPOGANDA, on a modern basis, with access to Internet sites, the Western press, cinema-TV video nearby, etc.
