Yamal 301

Yamal 301 [Gazkom]

Yamal-300 Satellites are destined for providing telecommunication services in zones, covering a considerable part of Eastern hemisphere.

Yamal-301 Satellite (in 90E orbital position) will give the existing customers of Yamal-200 satellite further development opportunities by repeating coverage zones.
Yamal-302 Satellite (in 55E orbital position) is destined for serving users of European part of Russia, Eastern Europe, Middle East and North Africa.

Main services provided on the basis of Yamal-300 satellite capacity:

  • Direct-to-Home TV (DTH), including High-Definition TV (HDTV)
  • TV Distribution
  • Multi-service VSAT networks (Internet access, distance education, telemedicine, etc.)
  • VSAT services in corporative and rural communication networks (telephony, data transmission, Internet access)
  • Backbone lines (point-to-point)

Yamal-300 Satellites were scheduled to be launched at the end of 2007, but had been delayed to 2010. Due to the delays, Gazprom cancelled in early 2009 the contract for the Yamal 301 and Yamal 302 satellites and ordered the Yamal 300K satellite as a gapfiller.
