The analysis of the possibilities of using of high-orbital and low-orbital systems of satellite communication in high-latitude regions is implemented. The domestic systems of satellite communication «Yamal» and «Gonetz» are considered. It is shown that under the known restrictions on use in high-latitude regions the system «Yamal» on the basis of geostationary relay satellites can be used for operative communication in regions of Far North and in Arctic coastal zone. The system «Gonetz» on the basis of low-orbital relay satellites provides an operative communication on limited distances and non-operative communication in «e-mail» mode in all high-latitude zone.
