Kosmos 2500 (Russian: Космос 2500 meaning Space 2500) is a Russian military satellite launched in 2014 as part of the GLONASS satellite navigation system. It was the 2,500th satellite to receive a Kosmos designation

This satellite is a GLONASS-M satellite, also known as Uragan-M, and is numbered Uragan-M No. 755.[3]

Kosmos 2500 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 17:16 UTC on 14 June 2014. The launch successfully placed the satellite into a Medium Earth orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the international designator 2014-032A. The United States Space Command assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 40001.[1]

The satellite is in orbital plane 3, in orbital slot 21.[4] As of August 2014 it remains in operation.
