EXPRESS-AM8 is a geostationary communication satellite, located at 14 degrees west longitude, covering a region stretching from the Americas to Europe, North Africa and Russia with 42 transponders transmitting in Ku-band, C-band and L-band. Thales Alenia Space of France supplied the satellite's antennas and repeater system. Express AM8's bus was built by ISS Reshetnev, a Russian satellite manufacturer. Express AM8 will replace the aging Express A4 communications satellite launched in June 2002. Express AM8 joins RSCC's satellite fleet providing commercial telecom services and communications links for Russian government ministries and the Russian president. The new satellite is designed for fixed and mobile communications services, digital television, radio broadcasting, Internet access and other data transmissions.
