Raduga-1M [NPO PM]
(Antennas probably ommitted)
The Raduga-1M satellites are military commmunication satellites. They are improved versions of the Globus (Raduga-1) satellites featuring modern multi-transponder transmission equipment working within centimetric- and decimeter-wave bands, which ensures communication with mobile stations including mountain hard-to-reach regions.
Raduga-1M is the geostationary component of the Integrated Satellite Communications System (ISSS), where they work in conjunction with the highly eccentric orbit (HEO) Meridian satellites.
The satellites features transponders in the L, C, X and Ka-bands. They are inserted directly into the geostationary orbit by the Proton-M Briz-M launch vehicle.
