MOSCOW, April 23. /ITAR-TASS/. The next launch of a Russian navigation satellite GLONASS from the northern Plesetsk space site, in the Arkhangelsk Region, is scheduled for June 14, the deputy chief of the Russian space agency Roscosmos, Anatoly Shilov, told an international navigation forum in Moscow.
“At the moment, the orbital cluster GLONASS consists of 28 satellites: 24 are operating in the routine mode and four in the reserve,” he said.
A second GLONASS-K satellite is due to be launched later this year. The first satellite in the series currently in orbit is being flight-tested.
