Ekspress-AT2 (Russian: Экспресс-АT2) is a Russian communications satellite which was launched in March 2014. Part of the Ekspress series of geostationary communications satellites, it is owned and operated by the Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC).

Satellite description

It is based on the Ekspress-1000K satellite bus manufactured by ISS Reshetnev. Its mass at launch is 1,427 kg (3,146 lb), and the power allocated to the payload is about 3000 watts. The satellite carries 16 Ku-band transponders, providing satellite television to Western and Central Russia, as well as Western and Central Siberia, and almost all of Kazakhstan. The planned service life of the satellite is at least 15 years.[3]


It was launched, with Ekspress-AT1 communications satellite, on 15 March 2014 at 23:08:00 UTC, from Baikonur Cosmodrome at Site 81/24 in the framework of Russian Federal Space Program for 2006-2015, approved by the Government Decree No. 635 signed on 22 October 2005 by Prime Minister Mikhail Fradkov.


Express-AT2 was launched into orbit on 15 March 2014. The commercial operation of the satellite started on 27 May 2014.[1]
