September 20, 2021 – Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) and an international service provider Hunter Communications have put in place communication channels to monitor the earth’s seismic activity. High-precision seismometers are installed in a number of regions of Yakutia, transmitting data via the Express-AM5 communications and broadcasting satellite located in geostationary orbit at 140° E. Over one and a half million square kilometers of Yakutia’s territory are earthquake-prone. Every year, hundreds of earthquakes of various strengths occur here – up to 9-10 points on the 12-point MSK-64 scale. The most dangerous are the northeast and south of Yakutia. The sensors allow you to record the vibration of the earth’s crust, even if the source of the shock wave is located in another region of the globe, which makes it possible to predict an earthquake in advance. Going forward, the coverage of the VSAT network for monitoring seismic activity will be expanded to include the whole of Eastern Siberia.
