Today the company secures its position as a prime contractor under a number of state-run programs as well as a variety of commercial projects in the interest of both national and foreign customers.
In the 1960s the Siberian company began designing communications, navigation and geodesy spacecraft, thus entering the satellite manufacturing business. And it defined the company’s further specialization. As of today, ISS-Reshetnev has built over 1200 spacecraft ensuring national security and facilitating development of various industries and social life. ISS-Reshetnev-produced satellites make up 2/3 of the national satellite fleet.
Academician M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems has gained a great reputation in the global market having become the first Russian space company to enter the international arena.
