Soyuz 2.1a/Fregat | Meridian-M №18

Russian Space Forces | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
July 30, 2019, 5:56 a.m.
Status: Success
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.

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

Russian Space Forces | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
May 27, 2019, 6:23 a.m.
Status: Success
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.
