About Intersputnik

The Intersputnik International Organization of Space Communications (Intersputnik, Organization) was established under the intergovernmental Agreement of November 15, 1971 on the Establishment of the Intersputnik International System and Organization of Space Communications (Intersputnik Agreement). It is an international organization headquartered in Moscow.

Today, the Organization’s 26 member states represent virtually all geographic regions from Central America to South-East Asia and from Europe to Africa.

Intersputnik’s core business is satellite capacity leasing to telecommunications companies, broadcasters and corporate customers under contracts with satellite system operators. Through its subsidiary Isatel, the Organization offers full-scale services including installation and operation of satellite telecommunications networks.

Intersputnik’s main distinction and decisive advantage lies in the fact that it is an all-purpose supplier of satellite capacity and technological solutions helping customers to choose from a broad variety of different systems present in the global market and get all information they need from a single source.

Unrivaled experience of successful operation of satellite systems is Intersputnik’s principal asset and the availability of the Organization’s own spectrum and orbit resource its recipe for success. Using this resource Intersputnik implements full-scale projects deploying satellites in its own positions to cover the fastest growing regions with swelling demand for satellite services.

Intersputnik is an active entity under international law. It closely cooperates with a large number of major international intergovernmental and nongovernmental organizations. Intersputnik has Permanent Observer status at the UN Committee for the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space. For many years, the Organization has been a member of the Radiocommunication Sector of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) and was one of the founders of the Asia-Pacific Satellite Communications Council. In May 2007, Intersputnik acceded as an observer to the Regional Commonwealth in the Field of Telecommunications uniting Telecommunications Administrations of the CIS, Baltic, Central and Eastern European countries. Intersputnik takes part in the activity of nongovernmental international organizations such as the International Astronautical Federation, International Institute of Space Law, Global VSAT Forum, and others.
