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

Sat 30, Mar 2024 07:00:PM
Unknown Pad
Plesetsk Cosmodrome, Russian Federation

Mission Details

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

Mon 20, May 2024 07:00:PM
Cosmodrome Site 1S
Vostochny Cosmodrome, Siberia, Russian Federation

Mission Details

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
Family Soyuz
Length 46.3
Diameter 2.95
Launch Mass 312
Low Earth Orbit Capacity 7020
The 2.1a version includes conversion from analog to digital flight control system and uprated engines on the booster and the first stage with improved injection systems. The new digital flight control and telemetry systems allow the rocket to launch from a fixed rather than angled launch platform and adjust its heading in flight. A digital control system also enables the launch of larger commercial satellites with wider and longer payload fairings such as the ST-type fairing. These fairings introduce too much aerodynamic instability for the old analog system to handle.
