MOSCOW, March 12. /TASS/. Russia’s telecommunications satellite Express-AM6 satellite, which was placed into a wrong orbit in late October 2014, has reached the final orbit, the satellite manufacturing company said on Thursday.
During the October 21, 2014 launch, the spacecraft was accidentally sent into the wrong orbit "the parameters of which have significant deviations in the altitude, inclination and eccentricity," said the Information Satellite Systems - Reshetnev Company based in Zheleznogorsk, in Eastern Siberia’s Krasnoyarsk Territory.
The company’s experts helped the satellite to move into the correct orbit "due to the resources of its electric propulsion."
The satellite will operate in the orbital position 53 degrees Eastern longitude after the testing of its efficient payload is completed.
The Express-AM6 is a satellite that provides communications and broadcasting services in Russia. The lifetime of the spacecraft is 15 years.
