Russian satellite bus by Reshetnev and Thales Alenia for large satellites. Supported spacecraft with a mass of up to 3500 kg, with a 1000 kg payload and 14 kW of power. Design life of 15 years

Status: Operational 2013. First Launch: 2013-12-26. Last Launch: 2014-10-21. Number: 2 .

AM-5 used a Reshetnev Ekspress-2000 bus with C, Ku, Ka and L-band communications payloads developed in collaboration with the Canadian company MDA. The Briz-M made four burns to deliver Ekspress AM-5 to a sub-geostationary orbit of around 33,800 x 37,800 km x 0.18 deg. It used its on-board electric propulsion system (ion drive) to complete the trek to GEO.
