Shchelkovo Telecommunication Center is a key and the fastest growing element of the company ground infrastructure.
Approximately quarter of GSS satellite constellation capacity is marketed through telecommunication services (communication links, TV and audio broadcasting, Internet access) with the purpose to generate added value and to diversify operator's business.
As for telecommunication service provider, Shchelkovo Telecommunication Center is the basis for company business. Telecommunication Center locates network control stations (hubs) of different technologies, as well as high-power central stations of satellite communication intended to receive/transmit signals trough satellites.
The Center exercises mission control, monitoring of operations and onboard systems analysis of all Yamal satellites. TT&C stations deliver commands to the satellites, receive telemetry of onboard systems and make raging measurements.
Operations Center is intended to monitor Yamal satellite constellation capacity, including measurement of transmitted signal parameters, monitoring and data collection for optimization of parameters and transponder loading to the benefit of users, as well as identification of onboard interferences, and to validate users’ ground stations access to satellite capacity.
Operations Center personnel provides 24-h/7-day support (including English speaking) for satellite capacity users.
To provide geo-information services to the benefit of Gazprom Group, oil and gas companies and other customers, GSS has established and now develops Aerospace Monitoring Center, which includes complex of space data acquisition and primary processing, complex of UAV monitoring and geodetic support, complexes of topical processing and complex of digital mapping based on supercomputer.
