December 3, 2019 – RSCC and Azercosmos signed a cooperation agreement pertaining to satellite communications and broadcasting services in Baku, Azerbaijan. The agreement is aimed at joining the efforts and making arrangements for the collaboration of both Azerbaijani and Russian operators in the domain of creation and development of satellite communications and broadcasting networks for a variety of economic and public administration sectors in Europe, the Middle East, Africa as well as in Russia and Azerbaijan. To that end, it is planned to use the potential of spaceborne satellites Azerspace 1, Azerspace 2, as well as RSCC’s Express AM series satellites, which ensure a stable coverage of the aforesaid regions, including the CIS countries. The Russian and Azerbaijani satellite operators have unique experience in implementing satellite projects aimed at setting up corporate communications networks, trunk internet access channels, regional TV broadcasting, as well as operating mobile objects on land, at sea, and in the air. Collaborative project efforts will allow the two companies to strengthen their presence in the regions of the Eurasian and African continents and to secure the broadest possible coverage of vertical markets for satellite communications and broadcasting services.
