MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. Russia plans to launch two satellites next year for remote earth probing.

The satellites, Resource-P 3, which is under construction now, according to schedule, and Kanopus-V 2, are planned to be launched next year, deputy head of the Roscosmos federal space agency Mikhail Khailov told a conference on remote earth probing on Friday.

The construction of Resource-P 2 is already finished. Its launch is planned for December this year. Launches of Resources-P 4 and 5 are planned for 2016 and 2017. They will be made entirely from Russian-made components.

The Roscosmos official also said that tests of Meteor-M 2 were completed. When the documentation processing is finished, a state commission will decide when to put the satellite into operation.

Meteor-M 2 was launched from Baikonur on July 8 with the Soyuz-2.1b rocket and a Fregat upper stage. The launch was originally planned for June 28, but was postponed because of Fregat problems.

In the Russian orbital group are Electro-L, Reosurce-DK1, Resource-P, Kanopus-V, Meteor-M 1 and Meteor-M 2.
