Kosmos 2411 (Russian: Космос 2411 meaning Cosmos 2411) is one of a set of three Russian military satellites launched in 2004 as part of the GLONASS satellite navigation system. It was launched with Kosmos 2412 and Kosmos 2413. NORAD apparently call this satellite Kosmos 2413, and instead call Kosmos 2413 Kosmos 2411.[3]

This satellite is a GLONASS satellite, also known as Uragan, and is numbered Uragan No. 796.[1]

Kosmos 2411/2/3 were launched from Site 200/39 at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. A Proton-K carrier rocket with a Blok DM upper stage was used to perform the launch which took place at 13:53 UTC on 26 December 2004. The launch successfully placed the satellites into Medium Earth orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the International Designator 2004-053A. The United States Space Command assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 28508.[1]

It was in the first orbital plane in orbital slot 1. It is no longer part of the GLONASS constellation.[3][4]
