Russia tested SATCOM REDUT-2US and ARTEK communication systems
On April 11, signal units of the Southern Military District have established closed satellite communication channels with troops at a distance of more than 1 thousand km.
The signalmen successfully organized a stable, secure communication between control centers and army units, on short-wave and ultra-short-wave radio stations, and equipped video-conferencing control centers. The procedure of switching equipment was also checked.
