Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M | Glonass-M No. 58

Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
May 27, 2019, 6 a.m.
Status: Go
Mission: Navigation

Glonass-M, also known as Uragan-M, are the second generation of Uragan satellite design used for GLONASS satellite navigation system. GLONASS is a Russian space-based navigation system comparable to the similar GPS and Galileo systems. This generation improves on accuracy, power consumption and design life. Each satellite weighs 1415 kg, is equipped with 12 L-band antennas, and has an operational lifetime of 7 years.

Soyuz 2.1a/Fregat | Meridian-M 18

Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
June 30, 2019, midnight
Status: TBD
Mission: Communications

The Meridian series of communications satellites is reported to be the replacement for all the Molniya-1T, the Molniya-3 and Molniya-3K satellite series and possibly also for the communication component of the Parus. They are launched into highly eccentric Molniya-orbits. Meridian is the highly eccentric orbit (HEO) component of the Integrated Satellite Communications System (ISSS), where they work in conjunction with the geostationary Raduga-1M (Globus-M) satellites. The bus structure is reportedly pressurized, possibly based on the Uragan-M bus. Meridian satellites carry three transponders operating in different frequency bands.

Rokot / Briz-KM | Gonets-M24, Gonets-M25, Gonets-M26 & 2 x Blits-M

Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
June 30, 2019, midnight
Status: TBD
Mission: Communications

Gonets-M are an upgraded version of Gonets satellites, derived from military communications system Strela-3. Gonets-M constellation is tasked with monitoring ecological and industrial objects, providing communication and data transmission services, covering also the remote areas like the Far North region. Gonets-M satellites share the ride with the Blits-M microsatellite, which is a geodesic satellite tasked with determining precise orbit parameters for GLONASS satellites.

Rokot / Briz-KM | Geo-IK-2 N13L

Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
July 31, 2019, midnight
Status: TBD
Mission: Earth Science

Geo-IK-2 is a Russian geodesy mission to deliver precise three-dimensional maps of the Earth’s surface and gravitational data for use in scientific studies and military applications. Using GLONASS for accurate positioning data, the 1400kg satellite will operate in a 1000km polar orbit.

Soyuz 2.1a | Bars-M No. 3

Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
Dec. 31, 2019, midnight
Status: TBD
Mission: Government/Top Secret

Bars-M is the second incarnation of the Bars project, which was started in the mid 1990ies to develop a successor for the Komtea class of area surveillance satellites. The original Bars project was halted in the early 2000s. In 2007, TsSKB-Progress was contracted for Bars-M, for which reportedly the Yantar-based service module was replaced by a new developed advanced service module. The Bars-M satellites feature an electro-optical camera system called Karat, which is developed and built by the Leningrad Optical Mechanical Association (LOMO), and a dual laser altimeter instrument to deliver topographic imagery, stereo images, altimeter data and high-resolution images with a ground resolution around 1 meter.
