RSCC's satellite program to cover remote areas of the Arctic

The Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) plans to add Arctic coverage to its fleet by ordering four satellites for highly elliptical orbits in late 2020.

"The company wants to put these satellites into orbit in 2024 to extend the coverage of the Ku band to northern Russia, a vast area beyond the reach of 10 ground-based state-operated satellites," said Yuri Prokhorov, RSCC CEO. "Elliptical orbit satellites, called Express-RVs, extend RSCC coverage deep into the Arctic," he added.

He continued: "We consider our Express-RV system and geosynchronous orbiting satellites as a single system to meet the demand and satellite communications services of fixed and mobile users (including air and sea) inside Russia and "The whole Arctic region is quite sufficient."

RSCC is the largest satellite operator of ground communications in Russia. Prokhorov said that in 2019, the company had revenue of 12.3 billion rubles ($ 174 million) and a net profit of 4.8 billion rubles. According to him, about 50% of RSCC's revenue comes from domestic customers in Russia, but the company wants to grow more internationally.
