Russia's Khrunichev Space Centre plans to launch 10 Proton boosters from the Baikonur Cosmodrome and to manufacture a further 14 boosters before the end of the year. Launches on behalf of ILS International Launch Services, of which it is a partner, include Astra, Tempo and Panamsat craft. The Russian-French Sesat communications satellite and two new Yamal satellites will form part of the national launch manifest that also includes the Russian control module for the International Space Station, which will be launched on a three-stage Proton rocket.
