COSMOS 2501 is the second craft in a series of upgraded Glonass K satellites designed to last longer, transmit more navigation signals, and launch on smaller rockets. Like the first Glonass K spacecraft, which launched in February 2011, the second satellite will demonstrate new technologies that Russia plans to incorporate in the future operational Glonass navigation system. The Glonass K satellite is expected to operate for 10 years—an improvement from the seven-year design life of previous satellites—and features five navigation channels, including a new civilian L-band signal. The new craft are lighter, generate more electrical power, and are based on an unpressurized Express 1000K bus built by ISS Reshetnev."
