At the beginning of the Baikonur launch site the preparations for the launch of spacecraft "Luch-5B" and "Yamal-300". . / August 1, 2012 /

In the assembly and testing facility site 31 Baikonur calculations JSC "Information Satellite Systems Academician MF Reshetnev «and FSUE TsENKI — Space Center» South «began work on spacecraft» Luch-5B «and» Yamal-300K. " On the eve of the two spacecraft were delivered to the cosmodrome.

Unloading the spacecraft carried out of the containers and their installation on a stand, where they will undergo prelaunch preparation.

At the same time at a gas station platform 31 is carried out refueling tank storage and supply amidol spacecraft «Luch-5B». The tanks are part of the propulsion system, but their training is carried out independently and, after refueling they were «hung» on the spacecraft, thereby reducing the time of its preparation for the launch site and reduce the number of transports.

Spacecraft series «Ray» are created in accordance with the Russian Federal Space Program for 2006-2015 and are designed for two-way information exchange between ground receiving and transmitting points and low-flying spacecraft, manned space complexes, especially with the Russian segment of International Space Station as well as other objects of space rocket technology, such as boosters and boosters.

Spacecraft series «Ray» will exchange information in areas of flight outside the zone of visibility from the territory of Russia, and send it in real time on a Russian two-way items, as well as arrange for videoconferences and teleconferences between terrestrial objects.

The first satellite of this series — «Luch-5A» was successfully launched on December 11, 2011 from Launch Complex 81 area at the Baikonur Cosmodrome by a space rocket «Proton-M» and the upper stage «Breeze-M».

Spacecraft «Yamal-300 K» was ordered by satellite operator OAO «Gazprom Space Systems.»

Spacecraft «Yamal-300K», after launching into geostationary orbit in the point standing 90 ° E, will provide services in Russia and CIS in the C-and Ku-band frequencies. 26 barrels relay spacecraft will have characteristics that are sufficient to implement all kinds of modern communication services.

Both spacecraft are designed and manufactured by the JSC «ISS» based on modifications of the platform «Express 1000». Start a space rocket «Proton-M» with the upper stage «Breeze-M» and the two Russian spacecraft «Luch-5B» and «Yamal-300 K» is scheduled for September 2012.
