In the Assembly and Testing building of the Information Satellite Systems company named after Academician M. F. Reshetnev (part of Roscosmos State Corporation) has begun the installation of new test equipment.

A new complex for ground-based experimental testing of spacecraft is being installed in the second stage of the Assembly and Testing building, the largest industrial facility of Information Satellite Systems company , the leader of the Russian satellite industry.

The created test complex will become the largest in the company.

It is designed for thermal vacuum testing of satellites and will include cameras with a volume of 2400 and 220 cubic meters.

The presence of two chambers will make it possible to verify the operability of both satellites as a whole, including the largest ones, and their individual systems under vacuum and space temperatures.

The new equipment will give the opportunity to increase the production efficiency of automatic spacecrafts in the interests of the Russian orbital fleet.
