Kosmos 2494 (Russian: Космос 2494 meaning Space 2494) is a Russian military satellite launched in 2014 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. 754.[3]

Kosmos 2494 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 22:54 UTC on 23 March 2014. The launch successfully placed the satellite into a Medium Earth orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the international designator 2014-012A. The United States Space Command assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 39620.[1]

The satellite is in orbital plane 3, in orbital slot 18.[4] As of April 2014 it remains in service.
