The navigation satellite «GLONASS-M» launch from the Plesetsk cosmodrome in September, said on Monday the Russian Federal space Agency.

«In a special shipping container, the spacecraft «GLONASS-M» №52 was delivered to the Plesetsk cosmodrome by Il-76 aircraft, accompanied by the specialists of «ISS». The launch is planned in September 2017 carrier rocket «Soyuz-2.1 b» with the upper stage «Fregat» — said on the website of the Corporation.

It is noted that the satellite was manufactured more than two years ago and was responsible for the custody of the manufacturer.
