On Monday, May 27, at 09:23 hours Moscow time from the State test cosmodrome Plesetsk in the Arkhangelsk region combat crew of the Space Forces VCS launched a successful launch of a Soyuz-2.1b medium-range space rocket with the Russian navigation spacecraft Glonass-M «.


The launch of the launch vehicle and the launching of the spacecraft into the calculated orbit took place in the normal mode.

Three minutes after the launch, the Soyuz-2.1b launch vehicle was taken to escort by means of the ground-based automated control complex of the German Titov Main Test Space Center.


At the estimated time, the Glonass-M spacecraft was launched into the target orbit by the Fregat upper stage and accepted for control of ground-based facilities of the Space Forces VKS.


A stable telemetric connection is established and maintained with the spacecraft. The on-board systems of the Glonass-M spacecraft are functioning normally.

According to official sources, the navigation satellite was placed into the desired orbit and is functioning normally. GLONASS-M (ГЛОНАСС-М), also known as Uragan-M (Ураган-М) is part of the Russian GLONASS satellite navigation system.


This is the first launch of a space rocket from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in 2019.


More information:


Flight tests of the Soyuz-2 space launch complex began at the Plesetsk cosmodrome on November 8, 2004. Over the past fourteen years, 37 launches of Soyuz-2 rocket launchers of modernization stages 1A, 1B and 1B have been conducted from the northern cosmodrome.


The Glonass-M spacecraft launched into orbit has replenished the orbital grouping of the Russian Glonass Global Navigation Satellite System and is at the stage of entry into the system. At present, the Glonass orbital group comprises 27 spacecraft, of which one spacecraft of the new generation, Glonass-K, is undergoing flight tests and one Glonass-M spacecraft is in orbital reserve.
