According to ISS Reshetnev's newsletter (Sibirski Spoutnik n°211), this satellite's official number is "GEO-IK-2 n°11".

Why do so many Russian satellite numbering sequences start at 11?

Why do so many Russian satellite numbering sequences start at 11?

The number 11 is internal factory number. Numbers up to 11 have mock-ups of the given satellite. If I remember correctly, numbers from 11 are using for satellites, which are building by ISS Reshetnyov (Zheleznogorsk) and Polyot (Omsk) enterprises.

The article mentioned, that a military satellite was launched.
Could this be Geo-IK-2??

Anatoly Zak says that ground control was unable to contact Geo-IK-2 :

The U.S. found an object 37363 = 2011-005B at 99.46° 311x1058 km 98.50 min.

Either that was recorded before the second burn, or the launch failed. As I understand it, the target orbit was 1000 km circular.

If it is a failure, the parameters of that orbit suggest the Briz-KM failed to ignite for its second burn, or the engine was shut down shortly after the start of it.


UPDATE: RIA Novosti are now reporting that the Briz-KM failed.

If the target orbit was 1000 km circular and barring any inclination change requirements, I get about a 180 m/s underspeed.

Anyone have anymore info on this?

"MOSCOW – Russia said it lost contact Tuesday with a newly launched military satellite, apparently the latest in a string of satellite failures.

The military failed to establish radio communications with the satellite launched on board a Rokot booster rocket earlier Tuesday from the northern Plesetsk launchpad, the Defense Ministry spokesman cited space forces commander Lt. Gen. Oleg Ostapenko as saying.

The military is working to determine the satellite's orbit and establish contact, he said."

Wrong orbit is one thing but no communication is another.

The state-controlled Khrunichev rocket maker said on its website the GEO-IK-2 Reshetnev satellite was intended for geodetic studies, which involve measuring or determining the shape of the Earth, or exactly locating points on its surface.

The apparent mishap follows a failed launch of three GLONASS-M satellites in December, which cost two space officials their jobs.
