Aist, Obzor-R, and Kondor-FKA satellites will be launched by the end of 2024, said Mikhail Khailov, Deputy Director General of Roscosmos State Corporation for Space Complexes and Systems. This is reported by TASS.

According to the executive, the Kondor-FKA radar satellite No. 2 is planned to be delivered to the cosmodrome shortly. Also, another radar satellite, Obzor-R No. 1, will be launched into space in 2024. A pair of Aist-2T satellites, designed for stereoscopic surveying of the Earth’s surface, is scheduled to be launched by the end of the year.

In April, the agency, citing the state corporation, reported that the Russian Aist-2D satellite, launched into Earth orbit during the first launch of a Soyuz-2.1a rocket with a new Volga block from the Vostochny Cosmodrome, had completed its work.
