Ekspress 80

The Ekspress 80 is a communications satellite for russian domestic communication services owned by RSCC (Kosmicheskiya Svyaz)..

The satellite was ordered in May 2016 with the spacecraft itself being built by ISS Reshetnev based on the Ekspress-1000N bus and the communication payload being built by Thales Alenia Space.

Offering a design life of 15 years, Express 80 will be positioned at 80° East. The payload power is about 6.3 kW. Express 80 will be fitted with 16 C-band and 20 Ku-band transponders to cover Russia, as well as two L-band transponders offering global coverage.

Ekspress 80 will operate at 80 degrees east, likely to replace the Ekspress-AM 22 / SESAT 2 satellite.

The Ekspress 80 and Ekspress 103 satellites will be launched together on a Proton-M Briz-M (Ph.4) booster in 2018.
