Russian "Express AM-4" Satellite Lost for Good
31.08.2011 12:13

The communication satellite "Express AM-4" has been lost definitively, according to the spokesman of the Space Communications Federal State Unitary Enterprise.

      “Space Communications declared the full loss of the satellite and put an indemnity claim to Ingosstrakh. The indemnity will exceed 7.5 billion rubles,” he said.

      On August 18, the satellite was launched from Baykonur, a cosmodrom in Kazakhstan rented by Russia. Soon after the launch it put to a wrong orbit and connection with it was lost.

      Express AM-4 is a new-class satellite built to provide multi-services, such as digital television and radio broadcast, telephony, videoconference, data transfer and the Internet. Its cost is about $300 million.

      Experts say the satellite's loss will not change plans of the federal programme of television and radio broadcast to provide the construction of another four satellites before 2015.
