Ekspress AT2 (Russian: Экспресс АT2) is a Russian communications satellite which was launched in March 2014. Part of the Ekspress series of geostationary communications satellites, it is owned and operated by the Russian State Company for Satellite Communications. It is based on the Ekspress-1000K satellite bus manufactured by JSC Information Satellite Systems. Its mass at launch is 1326 kg, and the power allocated to the payload is about 2850 watts. The satellite carries 16 Ku-band transponders, providing satellite TV to western and central Russia, as well as western and central Siberia, and almost all of Kazakhstan. The planned service life of the satellite is at least 15 years.[2]
