Kazakh Satellite Brought Back Into Orbit

by Staff Writers
Moscow (RIA Novosti) Nov 03, 2008
Specialists have brought a malfunctioning Kazakh satellite, KazSat-1, back into geostationary orbit, the satellite's Russian manufacturer said on Friday.

The $65 million satellite, Kazakhstan's first, stopped broadcasting to the country's territory on June 8.

The Khrunichev space research and production center said it had fixed the problem together with Kazakh specialists earlier in October, and the satellite would resume its regular operation once all of its systems had been tested.

Khrunichev, one of Russia's leading space-industry firms, developed KazSat-1 under a contract with the Kazakh government. It was put into orbit in June 2006.

The company is currently building a second satellite for Kazakhstan, KazSat-2, in cooperation with Russian and foreign companies, including the Russian Institute of Space Engineering and European company Alcatel Alenia Space.

KazSat-2 is to be launched in 2009.
