The Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) received the payloads for the Express-AM44 and Express-MD1 satellites from Thales Alenia Space.
The former payload was delivered to Information Satellite Systems Reshetnev Company (former NPO PM) for integration with the platform. Khrunichev Space Center works on the completion of the Express-MD1 satellite. Express-AM44 and Express-MD1 spacecraft are built within the schedule of the Russian Federal Space Program for 2006-2015. The launch of the satellites is scheduled for August 2008, and will occur at the Baikonur Space Center via a Proton-M vehicle with increased lifting power. This will be the first combined launch for RSCC.
The Express-AM44 satellite is manufactured by JSC Information Satellite Systems—Reshetnev Company (Russia) in cooperation with Thales Alenia Space (France). The satellite will carry 10 C-band (40 MHz) transponders, 16 Ku-band (54 MHz) transponders, and 1 L-band (1 MHz) transponder with improved power characteristics. The satellite's in-orbit operational life time is 10 years and possesses steerable antennas. The Express-MD1 satellite is manufactured by Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center (Russia) in cooperation with Thales Alenia Space (Italy) and will be equipped with 8 C-band (40 MHz) transponders and 1 L-band (0,5 MHz) transponder, with an in-orbit operational life time is 10 years.
