Meteor-M 2-1 [VNIIEM]
Meteor-M satellites are a new generation of russian meteorological satellites to replace the Meteor-3M series. The first two Meteor-M satellites will feature following instruments:
Meteor-M 2-1 was launched on 28 November 2017 on a Soyuz-2-1b Fregat rocket, but was lost due to an upper stage problem.
Meteor-M 2-2 was successfully launched on 5 July 2019. On 18 December 2019, it suffered a collision with either debris or a micrometeorite, which slightly changed the orbit and sent it tumbling. Stabilization and communications were restored after a few days. The damage suffered is under investigation.
The Meteor-M 3 satellite was to have a largely modified configuration for an oceanographic mission, but was cancelled.
