Loutch-5A: Progress of work
Academician M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems is hard at work on the manufacture of the Loutch-5A spacecraft, one of its most advanced data relay satellite projects.
At present Loutch-5A’s AOCS is undergoing tests on the complex simulation stand. Reshetnev’s experts are currently testing interference in power circuits; taking electrical devices data; checking up signal and command transmission as well as parameters of control channels.
Dynamic tests on the AOCS will start upon completion of the current phase.
Loutch-5A, together with the Loutch-5B and Loutch-4 satellites, is intended for the multifunctional data relay space system Loutch.
