AM7 arrives in Baikonur

The Russia Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) is due to launch its Express AM7 satellite on March 19, 2015, after it was delivered to Baikonur in Kazakhstan last week.

Express AM7 was manufactured by Airbus DS and is due to launch next month on a Proton-M/Breeze-M rocket.

The satellite carries up to 80 transponders in the C-, Ku- and L- bands and was built using federal funds set aside for the ‘Development of TV and Radio Broadcasting in the Russian Federation in 2009–2015.’

It will support TV and radio broadcasting, broadband access and multimedia, data, telephony and mobile communications services.
