Glavkosmos offers its foreign customers a wide range of space solutions in Earth observation, telecommunication systems, and scientific experiments. These solutions include production of satellites of various applications, launch services, space systems operation, receiving and processing of satellite data, personnel training, and coordination of all the said processes.
Kondor-E is a radar satellite for Earth observation. It is produced by the JCS “Military and industrial corporation JSC “MIC “Mashinostroyenia”. The first Kondor-E launch was conducted on June 27, 2013. The satellite provides the Earth imaging with the resolution up to 1 meter.
Kondor-E is designed for receiving, storage and transmission of the high-resolution Earth observation data in the microwave band of electromagnetic radiation spectrum. The synthetic aperture radar (SAR) ensures the round-the-clock and all-weather imaging of the Earth surface.
The unique advantage of the SAR – is improved imaging. Kondor-E with SAR is equipped with the high-resolution radar (up to 1 meter). The use of the expanded portable dish antenna of the umbrella type ensures the SAR high sensitivity.

Express-1000 is a modern satellite platform produced by the Russian company JSC “Academician M.F. Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems”. This platform allows creating the telecommunication satellites (up to 2,200 kg) on its base for television broadcasting, Internet, telephony.
Express-1000 has already been used for Russian and foreign satellites operation.
Bion-M is an automated space laboratory for the experiments in space biology, physiology and biotechnologies. It is produced by JSC “SRC “Progress” (Russia). The first Bion launch was conducted in 1973. The launch of the new Bion-M №1 version was conducted on April 19, 2013
Bion missions were performed on various biological specimens at different levels of evolutionary development, such us unicellular algae, tissues cultures, lower and higher plants, insects, fish, amphibians, turtles, rats, rhesus monkeys, in total amounting to 37 species.
Foton-M is used for the scientific programs in physics of zero gravity, the development of the semiconductors production. It is produced by JSC “SRC “Progress” (Russia). The launch of the new Foton-M №4 version was conducted on July 19, 2014.
The medico-biological experiments were conducted in collaboration with the scientific centers of the United States, Germany, Canada, the Netherlands, Poland and other countries. The process of the foreign hardware installation has been successfully worked through with the Bion and Foton spacecraft. The long-term agreements were concluded with the French National Space Agency (CNES), European Space Agency (Foton spacecraft), National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) (Bion spacecraft).
