Does anyone know why Roskosmos is using a Soyuz 2.1b for this mission when a Soyuz-U could do the same job?

The rocket would have been ordered before 2009, and at the time it was planned for a paired launch?

The launch of Glonass-K1 satellite is possibly postponed to 2013 and possibly Glonass-M satellite will be launched on December 25th instead of it.

The launch of Glonass-K1 satellite is possibly postponed to 2013 and possibly Glonass-M satellite will be launched on December 25th instead of it.

Will this affects the processing of ILS missions (Satmex-7 is currently scheduled on December 27), or like before an ILS mission and a Russian federal mission can be processed simulatneously?

Ah OK, I thought that the Russian guys are trying to substitiute a GLONASS-K satellite launch with a triple GLONASS-M launch from Baikonur...  :-[

Thanks a lot, I have changed the title of this thread and initialized a new one for the Glonass-M launch in December.

I remember both Glonass-K1 and -K2 are test satellites and only Glonass-KM will be production satellites. If Glonass-KM are available after 2020, that means the whole constellation will be sustained by Glonass-M satellites, thus a big delay of the Glonass modernization plan...

No, two Glonass-K1 satellites and two first Glonass-K2 satellites are test satellites. Since third Glonass-K2 all satellites will be serial. See the schedule of launches on http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=30175.0

According to this post:

http://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=15064.msg980013#msg980013

Fregat #1044 is actually a Fregat-M.

There are rumour on NK forum that the launch has been delayed due to problems with Fregat upper stage (it should be returned to a factory) and Glonass-K1 satellite.

This report confirms that there are problems with the electric cables of the fuel consumption control system of the Fregat upper stage: http://izvestia.ru/news/540601#ixzz2DfsMZ5iG. The new launch date is now in February/March 2013.

Fregat-M's control system needs repair or replacement.

Quote
Аппаратуру системы управления разгонного блока "Фрегат", из-за выявленных технических проблем в которой был отложен запуск спутника "Глонасс-К", отправят в Москву для ремонта, сообщил во вторник "Интерфаксу-АВН" источник в ракетно-космической отрасли.
По его словам, необходим ремонт или замена системы управления разгонного блока. Сам разгонный блок отправлять в Москву не планируется.

yes it appears to be delayed partly because Russian Authorities are trying to clear up Glonass-M backlog. If I remember correctly all of the remaining Glonass-M SC's have been completed and are sitting in corporations long term storage area awaiting their eventual launch onboard either Soyuz-2-1b or Proton-M.

Which generation of Glonass will have sufficiently low mass so that 2 may be orbited on Soyuz at a time?

Supposedly you can launch 2 Glonass-K1/K2 on Soyuz-2-1b/Fregat-M and 6 on both Proton-M/Block-DM-03 and Proton-M/Briz-M.

I do not have specs yet on series Glonass-KM.

So why are Glonass K1 being launched one at a time on Soyuz?

Primarily the fact that the 2 K1 and 2 K2 series sats are test satellites and after those all launch it was decided to implement Glonass-KM which are larger, but is much more capable than all predecessors.
Glonass-KM fully implements following CDMA channels in L1, L2, L3, L4, and L5 signal bands:
Glonass-KM Version Block 1: Civilian CDMA Bands:
L1: L1OC, L1OCM, L1SC
L2: L2OC, L2SC
L3: L3OC, L3SC
L4: L4OC, L4SC (Civilian L4 is still in development, to be implemented via a later block/series after 2020)
L5: L5OC. L5SC* (* L5SC is still in final development, to be implemented via a later block within Glonass-KM Family)

Glonass-KM Version Block 1: Federal FDMA Bands:
L1: L1OF, L1SF
L2: L2OF, L2SF
L3: L3OF, L3SF (Federal L3 is still in development, to be implemented via a later block/series after 2020)
L4: L4OF, L4SF (Federal L4 is still in development, to be implemented via a later block/series after 2020)
L5: L5OF, L5SF (Federal L5 is still in development, to be implemented via a later block/series after 2020)

Because Glonass K1 are purely test satellites and basically GIOVE-A and GIOVE-B but for Glonass instead of Galileo programme. Glonass-K1 and Glonass-K2 test series and have operational only FDMA bands which are carried over from Glonass-M and test only CDMA (Civilian Bands) which are new and operational version is slated to first fly on Glonass-KM No. 1.

This was original plan for launches back in 2007 before Glonass-KM was created which reduced number of K2 series to two All previously planned Glonass-K2 have been replaced by Glonass-KM which is slated to start in late 2015 or early 2016 at the earliest.

The other reason I know of is costly satellite launch failures.

 I know the idea was to launch two at a time, but since then they have got heavier. Can Soyuz haul two to orbit? Is such a requirement still needed considering last years launches were cancelled or posponed?

K2 is slightly heavier than K1 originally only K1 series existed; then when Russia issued order to include several additional transmitters covering new international CDMA L Bands required to be implemented worldwide by ICC via UN treaty that created for first time UN implemented standardized international CDMA L Bands for all new GNSS sat launches worldwide begin January 2014 which resulted in creation of initial CDMA Glonass test platform Glonass-K2 to implement IOC for baseline CDMA testing and regional services.  Glonass-KM is following expedited development process for its initial block of satellites to meet 2020 deadline for FOC implementation of full/all CDMA bands.

If I understand this correctly, Glonass K1 could be launched 2 at a time, but was never put into serial production because of the requirement to add CDMA, which resulted in the KM becoming the operational system; KM is too heavy to be launched 2 at a time on Soyuz.

I suspect that perhaps 4 or 5 KM satellites could be launched at a time on Proton-M, if they fit within the fairing.

Yes.

Actually based on the available that I have reviewed, Glonass-KM will launch in pairs (2 satellites per launch) aboard Angara A5/Briz-M (Block-DM once it becomes possible to fly Block-DM from Plesetsk Cosmodrome). Older information says that a single Glonass-KM can be launched via Soyuz-2i1b/Fregat-M with newer information saying two via Soyuz-2-3V if that launcher is implemented.
Latest information rules out any possibility of launch via Proton-M/Briz-M (Block-DM).

I am guessing that Proton-M is ruled out on the basis of transfer of as many launches as possible from Kazakhstan.

It is in accordance with the plan for the eventual conclusion of Federal missions from Baikonur and the pending retirement of Proton-M launcher when all missions will be transferred to other capable Russian launchers flown from other cosmodromes.

From the above news source, the Glonass-K1 launch will not be executed late this year; probably it has to be deferred to next year.

I have a question about numbering. I've seen this spacecraft named as Uragan-K1 #2 (Nr. 12 or 12L) or Blok K2s (and the previous as Uragan-K1 #1 (Nr. 11)). Why the 11 number? And the K series is also separated in launch bloks by launch with the last letter denoting the launch vehicle?

Reshetnev NPO PM start the first flight article from 11; here is what the first ten Raduga were used for:-

The blok numbers are because the intention from the start was to launch in pairs, or more; the same with other GLONASS satellites.

The satellite was finally delivered to the launch site yesterday, with launch planned in December: http://www.iss-reshetnev.ru/?cid=news&nid=1818

Man it's a long time since the first GLONASS-K went up. What caused the long delay in launching it?

Apparently this satellite will head for plane II of the GLONASS system (not that it mattered for general users anyway).
