Moscow (RIA Novosti) Aug 15, 2014


The new secure communication system is to be used by the country's leaders and the military, according to the newspaper. The system will be based on the Gonets-M1 and Gonets-M2 communication systems.

Russia intends to create a new powerful satellite communication system that will provide global coverage and communication security, Izvestia newspaper reported Thursday.

The development of such a system will require the launch of a space complex ordered by the Russian Defense Ministry and the Russian Federal Space Agency. The budget of the project is estimated at 65.6 billion rubles ($1.8 billion).

The system throughput is expected to reach 80 gigabits (Gb) by 2020, and 120 Gb by 2025. That will allow the simultaneous coverage of about a million high-speed terminals.

The new secure communication system is to be used by the country's leaders and the military, according to the newspaper. The system will be based on the Gonets-M1 and Gonets-M2 communication systems.

The space complex will consist of four satellites weighing up to 2.5 tons and equipped with transponders and air traffic control systems.
