Soyuz 2.1a | Bars-M No. 3

Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) | RUS
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
Oct. 31, 2020, 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.

Falcon 9 Block 5 | Sirius SXM-7

SpaceX | USA
Cape Canaveral, FL, USA
Nov. 6, 2020, midnight
Status: TBD
Mission: Communications

SXM-7 is a large high power broadcasting satellite for SiriusXM's digital audio radio service (DARS). Space Systems/Loral (SS/L) got in July 2016 the contract to build the two satellites based on their SSL-1300 bus - SXM-7 and SXM-8. Both operate in the S-band spectrum. Each satellite will generate more than 20-kW of power and will have a large unfurlable antenna reflector, which enables broadcast to radios without the need for large dish-type antennas on the ground. SXM-7 is meant to replace the XM-3 satellite.
