The ISS participates in the “Space- Election- Communication” exhibition
The ISS’s satellite models are presented at a theme exhibition “Space - Election – Communication” opened on in the Central Election Committee.
The exhibition is organized by the Russian Central Election Committee with the aim of demonstrating the effectiveness of modern satellite systems in the voting process.
The latest achievements in space industry and information technology used to prepare and hold elections, as well as to ensure the functioning of the RF Election automatic system, are presented at the exhibition.
The JSC “ISS” is exhibiting models of spacecraft used for data transmission on election days. These are models of the Express-AM, Gonets-M and Glonass –M spacecraft. Satellites of the Express-AM series provide resources for establishing communication links between remote election commissions of RF constituent entities and the Central Election Committee. Spacecraft of the second type are designed to provide data transmission from remote, hard-to-reach locations. Glonass-M satellites are intended to monitor mobile election commissions, ballot boxes and protocols of mobile commissions.
