    Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) | Soyuz 2.1a | Obzor-R No.1

    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…

  • Russian Space Forces | Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat | Glonass-K1 No. 18

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

    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.

    Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) | Soyuz 2.1b/Fregat-M | Ionosfera-M 1 & 2

    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…

    Russian Federal Space Agency (ROSCOSMOS) | Soyuz 2.1a/Fregat-M | Kondor-FKA No.2

    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…
