RSC "ENERGY". LAUNCH OF THE UNMANNED "SOYUZ MS" PLANS IN AUGUST 2019
05/18/2018 09:04

The launch of the Soyuz MS spacecraft on the Soyuz-2.1a rocket is scheduled for August 2019. The flight of the ship will pass in unmanned mode, which will allow several times to increase the payload due to the lack of a part of the instruments and units necessary to support the work of the crew. Currently, the unmanned version of the Soyuz MS spacecraft is at the stage of assembling the compartments.

Yevgeny MICRIN, General Designer of RSC Energia, stressed that the unmanned ship Soyuz MS is not a new modification of the manned spacecraft: "From an ordinary serial ship, this variant of the Union of MS is distinguished by a modernized traffic and navigation control on-board systems. Our task is to test this system, and also to check the integration of the ship with the Soyuz-2.1a launch vehicle.

The results of the flight tests of the modernized traffic and navigation control on-board systems can be used in the production of a new space transport cargo ship "Soyuz GVK", which RSC Energia is developing on the basis of the Soyuz spacecraft. In the "Soyuz GVK": deeper refinement of the onboard systems, another head fairing (without emergency rescue system). The truck can deliver 2 tons of cargo to orbit and return 500 kg to the Earth, while in the separated compartment of the ship it will be possible to place another ton of the cargo destined for utilization, which will burn in dense layers of the atmosphere. To launch the ship, it is planned to use a rocket carrier of higher carrying capacity - Soyuz-2.1b. Creation of the ship "Soyuz GVK" is planned to be completed in 2022.

MOSCOW, May 17. / TASS /. South Korean remote sensing satellites (CAS500-1 and CAS500-2) are planned to be launched at the end of April and the end of July 2020 on the Soyuz-2.1a rocket from the Baikonur cosmodrome. This was reported to journalists on Thursday by the general director of the Glavkosmos launch services company (launch operator) Alexander Serkin.

"The launch dates of South Korean satellites: CAS500-1 - the end of April 2020, CAS500-2 - the end of July 2020," he said.

According to Serkin, the start-up period for the first mission begins in December 2019 and ends at the end of April 2020, for the second, it begins in December 2019 and ends at the end of July 2020.

"Both missions will be launched from Baikonur with Soyuz-2.1a rockets with Fregat boosters, the rockets have already been ordered, the first already in production, the second will go into production later this year," he said.

The launch of the MLM slips to the end of 2019

In the first half of 2018, continuous delays with the repairs of the MLM module at GKNPTs Khrunichev in Moscow pushed the mission well into the second half of 2019. By May, the launch of the MLM module was officially re-scheduled for November 2019. In anticipation of its docking at the Russian segment of the ISS, the long-duration Russian crew aboard the outpost was expected to increase from two to three people in October 2019.

Any news re: Lybid and its Zenit LV?

(I assume no, but I thought I'd "bump" the topic.)

Ukrainian production of the launcher stages are complete minus the first stage engine which was reportedly denied transfer to Ukraine a few months ago. It will be shipped after receipt of Briz-KM hardware for the remaining Rockot 2018 launches.
Satellite is still sitting in storage.

Hypothetically, is it plausible in a sound engineering and business sense for:

Yuzmash to ship the Zenit as-is?

Then Roskosmos and TsENKI take custody of the shipment in Baikonur?

Energomash ships the embargoed RD-171 to Baikonur, instead of Dnipro?  (I just learned that the city's name was recently changed from Dnipropetrovsk to Dnipro!)

The associated technical staffers, Ukrainian and Russian, finish Zenit assembly at Baikonur?

Is it possible/technically legal in the current political climate?

(I assume no, but I like some surprises.)

The hardware to install and test the engine in the booster is in Ukraine. The engine is being held until Ukraine delivers components for Briz-KM.

Regarding the next Glonass-M launch; cross-post:
Seems like this one could go up June 16 from around 21:30 UTC

How many Glonass-M satellites and launches remain?  And when?

I see a single launch scheduled for October 2018 in this thread, as of the most recent revision.

I've read mention of differing numbers of satellites satellites still to be launched in different sources.  If I use the most expansive list I see model numbers: 757, 758, 759, 760, and 761.

Is a final Proton-M/Blok DM-03 triplet launch still planned for, or is it cancelled?

the most recent launch the payload was originally assigned to the triplet launch along with 757 and 758,
All remaining Glonass-M are to be flown this year per statements by the manufacturer and others this earlier year. Most/all have already shipped from the manufacturer during the first 2 quarters of 2018.

Summing this all up, and seeking correction if I'm wrong...

We should could (eventually) see up to 5 more Glonass-M satellites launched:

2 more "singlet" launches on Soyuz 2-1b/Fregat-M from Plesetsk,
And 1 more triplet launch on Proton-M/DM-03 from Baikonur.

Slight EDIT

And I've moved further discussion to the "Schedule of Glonass launches (2012-2020)" thread:

AFAIU, the GLONASS M launches are currently "on need for replacement".
I.e., just like this launch: as old satellite fails they launch replacement.
In other words, they do not plan to maintain orbital spares (well, at least this is what I heard).

With respect to triplet launch by Proton - they have this as an option for a case of multiple failures in a short period.
So it is not canceled in a strict sense, however it may never happen.

And finally there is a launch of GLONASS K1 scheduled for late 2018, although it's unclear if the sat will be ready.
