Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat | Glonass-K1 No. 18

Progress Rocket Space Center | Russia
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation
TBD June, 2024
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

Glonass-K are the third generation of satellite design 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 is unpressurized and weighs 935 kg, and has an operational lifetime of 10 years.

Soyuz 2.1a | Obzor-R No.1

Progress Rocket Space Center | Russia
Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation
TBD June, 2024
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

The Russian Obzor-R satellite is a planned X-band radar earth observation satellite designed by TsSKB-Progress. In 2012, the development of the Arkon-2M radar satellite was stopped and instead the development of the Obzor-R was initiated. The satellite features the BRLK X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar as the imaging instrument with a ground resolution of 500 m.

Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M | Ionosfera-M 1 & 2

Progress Rocket Space Center | Russia
Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation
TBD November, 2024
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

Ionosfera is a constellation of four ionospheric and magnetospheric research satellites developed by for Roscosmos for the project Ionozond. The satellites will operate on circular sun-synchronous orbits (SSO), at altitude of about 800 km and located in two orbital planes of two satellites each. The following science instruments are carried on the satellites: * SPER/1 Plasma and energy radiation spectrometer * SG/1 Gamma-ray spectrometer * GALS/1 Galactic cosmic ray spectrometer / 1 * LAERTES On-board Ionosonde * NBK/2 Low-frequency wave complex * ESEP Ionospheric plasma energy spectrometer * Ozonometer-TM Ozonometer * MayaK On-board radio transmitters * PES GPS-GLONASS device

Soyuz 2.1a/Fregat-M | Kondor-FKA No.2

Progress Rocket Space Center | Russia
Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation
TBD December, 2024
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

The Kondor-FKA is a small civilian radar Earth observation satellite designed by NPO Mashinostroyeniya as a civilian counterpart to the Kondor-E satellite. The Kondor satellite features a S-band synthetic aperture radar (SAR), which can conduct both continous swath surweys or detailed spot surveys. The swath width is 10 km. Ground resolution is 1 to 2 m in spotlight mode, 1 to 3 m in stripmap mode and 5 to 30 m in ScanSAR mode.

Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M | Luna 26

Progress Rocket Space Center | Russia
Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation
TBD December, 2027
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

Luna 26 (also named Luna-Resurs) is a planned lunar polar orbiter, part of the Luna-Glob program, by the Russian space agency Roscosmos. In addition to its scientific role, the Luna 26 orbiter would also function as a telecommunication relay between Earth and Russian landed assets. The scientific payload on board the orbiter is composed of fourteen instruments that will be fabricated by Russia. The payload will study the lunar surface and the environment around the Moon, including the solar wind, and high-energy cosmic rays. Luna 26 will also scout sites for the planned Luna 27 landing mission. Luna 26 is the second mission of Russia's new lunar program, which includes the launch of Luna 27, a heavy lander that will study the composition of the lunar soil by collecting several samples. Luna 28, a lunar samples return mission, will be the first to return samples at lunar temperature, and will serve as a demonstration for a future Martian samples return mission. Finally, Luna 29 should land a heavy lunar rover on the surface.

Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M | Luna 27

Progress Rocket Space Center | Russia
Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation
TBD December, 2028
Status: To Be Determined
Mission:

Luna 27 (also named Luna-Resurs 1) is a planned lunar lander mission by Roscosmos to send a lander to the South Pole–Aitken basin, an area on the far side of the Moon. The purpose is to prospect for minerals, volatiles (nitrogen, water, carbon dioxide, ammonia, hydrogen, methane and sulfur dioxide, and lunar water ice in permanently shadowed areas of the Moon and investigate the potential use of these natural lunar resources. On the long term, Russia considers building a crewed base on the Moon's far side that would bring scientific and commercial benefits. The lander will feature 15 science instruments that will analyse the regolith, plasma in the exosphere, dust, and seismic activity. The payload will include a sampling drill.
