MOSCOW, June 18. /TASS/. Russia’s easternmost spaceport Vostochny has been connected to the system of receiving telemetry data from the International Space State (ISS), the press-office of the Russian space agency Roscosmos has said. Vostochny’s center of measurements and collection and processing of data from space rockets and vehicles went operational on Thursday.
"The complex allows for enhancing the reliability of receiving telemetry data, expanding the capabilities of the ground station of ISS control and carry out tests in preparations for launching the Soyuz-2.1a rocket," Roscosmos said.
The first portion of data from the Russian segment of the ISS was received by a mobile measuring facility provided and deployed at the spaceport by the Russian Space Systems. The communication sessions were held on June 17, Roscosmos said, adding that all systems performed well and the quality of data was good.
"The equipment provided by the Russian Space Systems confirmed the readiness for information support for flight-testing space rockets to be launched from the Vostochny spaceport," RSS CEO Andrei Tyulin is quoted by Vostochny’s spaceport as saying.
The Vostochny spaceport is being built in the Amur Region. The first launch will be carried out at the end of the year.
