The center of space communication «Kokterek» 5 years

On 28 June 2018 the «Republican center of space communication» JSC (RCSC) commemorates the memorable date. Five years ago, on June 28, 2013, a new space infrastructure object was commissioned - a reserve ground control complex of satellite communication and broadcasting KazSat, which received the same name with the village «Kokterek» in the Almaty region.

The center of space communication (CSC) «Kokterek» is designed for backup control, maintenance of the specified technical and ballistic characteristics of the satellite series «KazSat», monitoring of the payload of kazakh communication and broadcasting satellites.

Three months after commissioning, the retrofitting of technological equipment was carried out under the project «KazSat-3».

CSC «Kokterek» is a modern technological center, created by the analog of the existing main center of space communication «Akkol» in Akmola region.

Today, the potential of the CSC «Kokterek» allows to operate it not only for its intended purpose, but also to offer its infrastructure to satellite communication companies interested in the smooth and efficient operation of their satellite networks, as well as in the development of promising projects.

On the basis of CSC «Kokterek» is functioning Teleporter that enables interoperability between satellite and terrestrial communication networks.

On this significant date, RCSC will present to partners the project «Creation and commissioning of space communication system KazSat-2R». Technical characteristics and possibilities of using the new communication and broadcasting satellite KazSat-2R will be presented.

The event will be attended by representatives of the Ministry of defense and aerospace industry of the Republic of Kazakhstan (MDAI), Aerospace Committee of the MDAI, akimat of Almaty region, leading space communication operators of Kazakhstan.
