Kosmos 2477 (Russian: Космос 2477 meaning Cosmos 2477) is one of a set of three Russian military satellites launched in 2011 as part of the GLONASS satellite navigation system. It was launched with Kosmos 2475 and Kosmos 2476.

A Proton-M carrier rocket with a Briz-M upper stage was used to perform the launch which took place at 16:51 UTC on 4 November 2011.[6] The launch successfully placed the satellites into Medium Earth orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the international designator 2011-064B. The United States Space Command assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 37868.[1][5]
