New Russian satellite Express-AM6 launched into near-earth orbit

New Russian satellite Express-AM6 launched into near-earth orbitToday at 19 hours 09 minutes Moscow time from the Baikonur cosmodrome, the Proton-M rocket carrier was successfully launched, which launched a new heavy-class Russian telecommunications satellite Express-AM6 into near-earth orbit. The Ministry of Communications and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation reports that the satellite must take an orbit in the position of 53 degrees east longitude. On the morning of October 22, the satellite is expected to separate from the Briz-M upper stage in the target orbit. After that, about two months will continue the withdrawal of the satellite to a given position. From this position, Express-AM6 will provide coverage for the European part of Russia, the Urals and Western Siberia, as well as countries of the Middle East, Europe and Africa, reports Ministry of Telecom and Mass Communications of the Russian Federation (Ministry of Communications and Mass Media).

The Express-AM6 satellite will make it possible to create additional infrastructure to provide the population of the western regions of the country with affordable multi-program digital television and radio broadcasting, including high-definition television.

The spacecraft Express-AM6, manufactured by JSC "ISS them. Academician M.F. Reshetneva, together with the Canadian company MDA and the FSUE NIIR, on request of the FSUE “Satellite Communications”, is equipped with 72 transponders in the C-, Ku-, Ka- and L-bands. The total transponder resource is more than 2700 MHz. The lifetime of the spacecraft for the intended purpose is 15 years.

It is expected that in the first quarter of 2015 after the completion of flight tests and verification of all on-board systems, the Express-AM6 satellite will be put into operation in the orbital position 53 degrees east longitude.

The Ministry of Communications and Mass Media of Russia pays great attention to the development of satellite constellation, which is necessary for organizing digital television broadcasting and covering communication services in remote regions of the country where optical communication channels are too expensive and sometimes technically impossible.

As part of this 26 activity in December 2013, the successful launch into orbit of the satellite Express-AM5 took place, with which the ministry launched the most ambitious stories Russian satellite satellite group update. Also 17 March 2014, two more Russian communications satellites - Express-AT1 and Express-AT2 - were put into orbit.

Recall 3 December 2013, the Government of the Russian Federation decided to create the "United Rocket and Space Corporation" (ORKK) and deep reform of the entire satellite industry. As part of this order, the Ministry of Communications and Mass Media of Russia is developing a “single-channel” scheme for financing the entire cycle of works on the creation, launch and use of spacecraft. The “single-channel” scheme assumes the priority of Russian engineers, enterprises, spacecraft and launches over foreign ones, as well as Russia's expansion into the top five world leaders in the proportion of satellite communications and broadcasting services.

            My dear, name at least one satellite, "buried" on personal initiative. You are not even able to divide and determine the reason for "burying", but everything is there. Satellites do not have the ability to independently enter space. Rockets are taking them out!
            It’s like in yesterday’s crash of a French plane to blame the passenger directly.

      Another proof of the absurdity of the sanctions of the bourgeois. But I think the satellite is not easy, broadcasting the numbers is good, but not critical, especially for the west of the Russian Federation. This is likely to be discussed here in preparation for the launch of fundamentally new means of communication that are being adopted by the armed forces today (judging by the publications of the last weeks on military units). Well, given the proximity (at the threshold they spit on our rug!) Of NATO, and their periodic spitting of aggression against Russia, the satellite’s location just fits into all this. Maybe I'm wrong, in my naivety and narrow-mindedness, but this is the first thought, which came to me after the material I read.

        Today at 19 hours 09 minutes Moscow time, the Proton-M rocket carrier was successfully launched from the Baikonur Cosmodrome,
        The news is doubly good. First, the satellite was launched. Secondly, it seems that the Khrunichev plant has finally sorted out its "protons". After all, the last time was - no matter how the launch of the "proton". so accident. God grant that these accidents do not happen again.

        Hopefully all the problems were fixed by Proton. He will not be replaced for 10 years yet. Poroshenko said after his visit to YuzhMash that he hopes for cooperation with Kazakhstan. I wonder how it is? After all, critical components are made in Russia. Negotiated on Zenith. We are a "long" order for a dozen missiles, RF components and a "load", Ukraine to assemble. Now everything is down the drain. And we were going to modernize the launch pad. It seems so agreed. This Poroshenko came to YuzhMash with Kolomoisky. "Two of a Kind". Yaytsenyuk threatens with sanctions. And how do they want this cooperation to figure out without Russia? They have winter on their nose, and they fly in space. Dreamers. And what kind of oligarchs are they, if they ruin such a CASE - they only knew how to steal ?! What kind of businessmen are they - embezzlers ?!
        Zenith - a cool rocket launcher, environmentally friendly, powerful. By the way, I read that according to the budget of Roscosmos since 2016, there are no rental costs for Baikonur. I don’t know, but Kazakhstan stated (NAS in particular) that Kazakhstan is going to refuse to pay rent and is ready to take financial part. Maybe this is interconnected?

          Kasym, welcome! Nazarbay's hike sensed that the situation was changing and he would lose not only free money that he ripped off from the Russian Federation (in a friendly way, almost triple the size!), But in general this object as such because of Russia's departure to the Vostochny and Plesetsk cosmodromes ... Now he offers cooperation, because no matter how people stay with housing, work and everything is tied and connected with "Baikonur". He will no longer be able to amicably blackmail the Russian Federation, the freebie is over. I think the Baikonur project will still exist for some time, until all the planned launches of heavy missiles are completed. Probably this is 8-10 years, then it will be simply unprofitable and unprofitable, of course, if Kazakhstan does not find tenants. But for that kind of money, except for Russia, there are no fools in the world.

            On ter. RK 7 military grew. polygons. And Baikonur is not the largest of them.
            There was no blackmail. There was not a single launch failure. By the way, ask how RK "saved" Baikonur alone until 1998. I think arrogance will fly off immediately. hi

      "Express AM6" is intended to provide a package of multiservice services (digital TV and radio broadcasting, telephony, video conferencing, data transmission, access to the Internet), to create VSAT networks, as well as for mobile government and presidential communications. It will create the necessary infrastructure to provide the country's population with affordable multi-program digital television and radio broadcasting. The customer of the Express AM6 satellite is RSCC, and the manufacturer is ISS.

"Express-AT1" and "Express-AT2" will be launched into orbit by a pair launch using the "Proton-M" launch vehicle with the "Briz-M" upper stage. The launch dates of these satellites and the Express-AM8 spacecraft will be known after the contracts come into force, "N. Testoedov said. The term of active existence of the Express-AM5 and Express-AM6 satellites will be 15 years."
