The first of a new generation of GLONASS satellites will be launched next year says the satellite manufacturer, Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems.

The next gen satellite will launch from the Plesetsk spaceport in North Russia. Called Glonass-K2, the new satellites are distinguished by improved accuracy and longer ten-year operational lifespans compared to seven years for the previous generation. And at 1,800kgs they are twice as heavy as the previous K1 series.

CEO of Russia’s Roscosmos corporation, Mikhail Khailov, also told a satellite navigation forum that the K2's will transmit a new CDMA encoded signal.
