The Siberian designers of space vehicles have started creating telecommunication satellites of a heavier class
This information came on Monday from the Mikhail Reshetov Scientific Industrial Association of Applied Mechanics in the city of Zheleznogorsk, Krasnoyarsk Territory, which produces up to 70% of Russian space satellites. The statement underscores that the other day the leading experts of the Russian Space Agency discussed and approved a draft project of a new highly reliable satellite platform, Express-2000, on which nearly twice as much devices of payload and power-to-weight ratio of a space vehicle can be mounted than on those produced now. According to the estimates of the Association's designer general, Vladimir Bartenev, the new platform will make it possible to bring the starting weight of a satellite nearly to three metric tons, and a minimum term of its functioning on a geostationary orbit will be 15 years. The creation of the satellites of the 21st century on the basis of the Express-2000 platform will make it possible to use rocket-carriers Proton-M and Briz-M for their launching not only from Baikonur, leased from Kazakhstan, but also from the Russian Plisetsk launching site in the Arkhangelsk region (the north of the European part of Russia), using perspective rocket-carriers Angara-5, thus bringing the country a substantial economic advantages
