Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center is scheduled to launch a Soyuz 2.1a/Fregat-M rocket as part of the mission. The launch window for the mission is on 01/01/2022 UTC (Date May Change) from Baikonur Cosmodrome, Republic of Kazakhstan. Don’t miss this exciting rocket launch! Watch the launch video of the Soyuz 2.1a/Fregat-M and experience the excitement for yourself.
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.
Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center is a Moscow-based producer of spacecraft and space-launch systems, including the Proton and Rokot rockets and is currently developing the Angara rocket family. The Proton launch vehicle launches from Baikonur and Rokot launches from Baikonur and Plesetsk. Angara will launch from Plesetsk and Vostochny.
