Russian Launches Game-Changing Satellites Amid Pandemic

Russian Satellite Communications Co. (RSCC) plans to introduce its new Arctic exposure for its network. The update is a definite inclusion for later this year that RSCC expects to integrate by integrating four large elliptical orbit spacecraft.

The Chief Executive Officer of RSCC Yuri Prokhorov claims that the organization needs the satellites to be operational by 2024. The plan is for the satellites being used to serve Russia’s far north, a vast region beyond the scope of the 10 geostationary satellites operated by a government site operator. RSCC scope expects to expand operations into the Arctic Circle by using the elliptic orbit satellites, or ExpressRVs.

Russian Satellite Communications Co. (RSCC) aims to attach Arctic defense to its fleet by purchasing four currently orbiting elliptical satellites later in 2012.

RSCC Chief Executive Yuri Prokhorov stated in 2014 that the organization plans to provide surrounding satellite surveillance to provide Ku-band range in regions Far into North Russia. This targeted region is a large section well within the operational control area of the 10 GPS satellites from Russian state-owned satellite providers. These satellites dubbed express-RVs, expand the range of RSCC well into the Arctic Circle, he said by email.

Prokhorov said RSCC caused a rollover of substantial changes in customer patterns. These changes are as a result of the coronavirus disease outbreak. Nautical based communication was the primary industrial application for the satellite network at the start of the year. It made up RSCC’s largest growing market. However, another application that follows the use of these satellites is TV broadcasting.  The new venture takes up more than 30 percent of the new application for the satellite network mainly because a majority of people stay at home to combat the progression of the virus.

Prokhorov, however, brought to focus that passenger based transportation was left “high and dry” during the epidemic, all while competing for television and online courses experienced uptakes in traffic

“The rapid speed and change in main directions in the growth of the market in three months are mentally challenging to understand,” he added. Prokhorov went on to state that he is unsure of the effect the satellites have on the mobile network space and trends in the years to come.

“Once pandemic constraints have been lifted, certain facilities should stay in high demand, but at the moment, it is impossible to tell which ones,” he added.

He went on to state that nearly 50 percent of RSCC’s revenues come from existing Russian clients. RSCC is excited to increase its reach internationally. Prokhorov, however, attests to the fact that the pandemic proves to be problematic for the company’s foreign expansion plans. The future for the Russian based company holds more prospects past coronavirus pandemic
