Specialists of the Russian Space Systems holding together with their colleagues from VNIIEM Corporation JSC (both operating as part of Russia's Federal Space Agency / ROSCOSMOS) have received telemetric data and transferred the first instructions to the Canopus-B no. 3 and Canopus-B no. 4 satellites launched from the Vostochny Cosmodrome on February 1, Russian Space Systems informed.
The telecontrol system developed by Russian Space Systems successfully transferred information on the condition of the space vehicles to the Earth an hour and a half after the launch. The telemetric data showed that all the onboard systems were operating as normal, the solar arrays had unfolded, the cells are fully charged and the temperature mode and other parameters were normal.
