Kosmos 2529 (Russian: Космос 2529 meaning Space 2529) is a Russian military satellite launched in 2018 as part of the GLONASS satellite navigation system.

This satellite is a GLONASS-M satellite, also known as Uragan-M, and is numbered Uragan-M No. 757.[3]

Kosmos 2527 was launched from Site 43/4 at Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. A Soyuz-2-1b carrier rocket with a Fregat upper stage was used to perform the launch which took place at 20:17 UTC on 3 November 2018. The launch successfully placed the satellite into a Medium Earth orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the international designator 2018-086A. The United States Space Command assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 43687.[1]

The satellite is in orbital plane 2, in orbital slot 7.[4] As of December 2018 it remains in operation.
