The Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) has successfully completed the transfer of Express-AM22’s current traffic load to Express-AM6, located at 53 degrees East.
It is now translating Express-AM22 from 53 degrees East to 80.1 degrees East, with the aim being for the satellite to start operating in its new orbital position on August 5.
Express-AM6 was deployed on April 22 this year in the key 53 degrees East orbital position, which covers Russia, Europe, the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
As part of the process, it was planned to shift Express-AM22 to 80.1 degrees East.
RSCC currently operates a total of 11 satellites.
