Three Gonets-M communications satellites manufactured by Russia’s Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems have been delivered to a launch site. Transportation of three small Gonets-M communications satellites No. 21, 22, 23 was performed on board the IL-76 transport plane in normal mode.

According to the information available, the Gonets-M satellites delivered to the Plesetsk space launch center will soon be prepared for launch that is scheduled for early March.

It should be noted that the Gonets-M communications satellites No. 21, 22, 23 will join the Gonets-D1 constellation of multirole satellites to ensure communication and e-mail format data transmission in Russia’s Far North and remote areas.
