Science and Technical Council
On December 30, 2019 ISS-Reshetnev Company hosted a meeting of the Science and Technical Council to discuss the results achieved in 2019.
This year’s edition of the annual event was attended by the representatives of ISS-Reshetnev Company, its customers, municipal and regional authorities and the general director of the Mining and Chemical Combine. The meeting was traditionally chaired by Nikolay Testoyedov, general director of ISS-Reshetnev Company.
The participants focused on the discussion of the 2019 year results and plans for the nearest future, already performed and anticipated launches, research and development projects carried out by the company.
In 2019 eight satellites designed and built by the company were launched into various orbits. As of today there are a total of 104 ISS-Reshetnev-made satellites in space that constitute two-thirds of Russia’s orbital fleet. Apart from that, ISS-Reshetnev Company successfully completed several projects for the manufacture of satellite onboard systems and instruments, including the ExoMars-2020 program.
As a contractor under a number of government programs, ISS-Reshetnev Company has a backlog of orders up to 2025 requiring the production at the full capacity of 100%. “Within the Federal Target Program GLONASS ISS-Reshetnev Company is tasked with the production of 27 navigation satellites. At any given time there are around 50 satellites at varying stages of production at the company’s facilities, including 12 ground spares. Some of them are slated for launch in 2020. Taking all things together, we plan to double the number of satellites launched in 2020 in comparison with that of 2019”, said Nikolay Testoyedov.
