Kosmos 2379 (Russian: Космос 2379 meaning Cosmos 2379) is a Russian US-KMO missile early warning satellite which was launched in 2001 as part of the Russian Space Forces' Oko programme. The satellite is designed to identify missile launches using infrared telescopes.[2]

Kosmos 2379 was launched from Site 81/24 at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. A Proton-K carrier rocket with a DM-2 upper stage was used to perform the launch, which took place at 20:39 UTC on 24 August 2001.[2] The launch successfully placed the satellite into geostationary orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the international designator 2001-037A.[2] The United States Space Command assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 26892.[2]

This satellite was located at 24W until August/September 2007 when it moved to 12E.[4] It had an 8-year operational life and failed late 2009/early 2010.[3]
