Ekspress-AM6 (Russian: Экспресс-АМ6 meaning Express-AM6) is a Russian communications satellite which was launched in 2014. The satellite has replaced the older Ekspress-AM22, at 53° East. Part of the Ekspress series of geostationary communications satellites, it is owned and operated by the Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC).

Satellite description

The satellite has 14 C-band, 44 Ku-band, 12 Ka-band and 2 L-band transponders.[3]


The satellite was launched on a Proton-M / Briz-M launch vehicle from Baikonur Cosmodrome. The Briz-M upper stage shut down too early in the 4th burn and left the satellite in a lower than planned orbit. The satellite reached the operational geostationary orbit by using its own propulsion.[3]
