Gazprom space systems – in the rating of the World association of teleports

Gazprom space systems got to the world ranking of satellite telecommunication companies made by the World association of teleports (WTA). In the list of the most fast-growing companies which basis is revenue growth of the organizations for the last financial year the structure of Gazprom rose by the fifth line.

In rating both satellite operators, and suppliers of satellite telecommunication services are provided. In total more than one hundred companies which are in public space were estimated. First place in this category was won by Emerging Markets Communications (USA), the Australian SpeedCast and Global Data Systems (USA).

According to originators of rating, total income of the largest operators in 2016 exceeded $12 billion from which $2.7 billion were the share of independent operators. The Russian companies were not included in this list. The three of the largest providers was made by the Luxembourg Intelsat S.A. and SES and also the French Eutelsat.

2012: Yamal-402 satellite

On December 8, 2012 the telecommunication Yamal-402 satellite launched from Baikonur Cosmodrome separated from the Briz-M upper stage for four minutes before estimated time. The official site of Roskosmos reports about it.

In the message it is emphasized that after emergency department Yamal-402 it was taken on management, and now specialists specify the scheme of its dovyvedeniye in a standing point for the purpose of the subsequent commissioning.

According to Interfax with reference to a source in the space-rocket industry, during the fourth inclusion Briz-M worked five instead of nine minutes and could not create a target orbit of Yamal-402 up to the end. This task, added a source, it is necessary to solve at the expense of fuel which is onboard the satellite that can slightly reduce the term of its active existence in an orbit.

The carrier rocket "Proton-M" with the Briz-M upper stage and the Yamal-402 satellite started from Baikonur on December 8 at 5:13 p.m. Moscow time. The upper stage separated from the carrier in the normal mode nine minutes later after start.

Yamal-402 is the geostationary telecommunication device of big dimension created by request of Gazprom space systems company. It will have to fill up grouping of the Russian communication satellites and to provide broadcasting on the territory of Russia, Western and Central Europe and also the Middle East and North Africa.
