The Russian Satellite Communications Company (RSCC) has signed contracts with Information Satellite Systems and Thales Alenia Space for the development of three new satellites.

ISS, named after the Russian academic MF Reshetnev, will be responsible for the development and manufacture of the craft while the French Thales will ensure the delivery of the payloads for all three satellites.

Two of the satellites, Express-AT1 and Express-AT2, will be used for direct-to-home broadcasts. A third, Express-AM8, will be used for telecommunications purposes.
