[Via Satellite 07-23-2015] Russian satellite manufacturer ISS Reshetnev is building a facility with a total area of more than 19,000 square meters for producing antennas and feeder devices for satellites. The building will house both design departments and production areas.
ISS Reshetnev is constructing the facility within the framework of Russia’s federal target program “Maintenance, Development and Utilization of the Global Navigation Satellite System Glonass for the years 2012 to 2020.” The facility will include workplaces dedicated to thermal and vacuum, vibration and high frequency tests to verify characteristics and the reliability of satellite payload components.
To date, the metal structure of the building is nearly complete, and the process of mounting wall panels is set to begin. The structure and thermal subsystems of the new building are due to be ready by the end of this year. Completion of ISS-Reshetnev’s new facility is expected in 2018.
