On January 20, 2005 at 06:00 DMV (03:00 UTC) the Space Forces successfully launched a Kosmos-3M rocket from launch pad No. 1 of the launch complex No. 132 of the Plesetsk launch site. The rocket delivered two satellites into orbit - Cosmos-2414 and Tatiana. According to the Space Forces, the spacecraft successfully reached their orbit at 07:02 MSK and at 07:37 MSK the command center of the Space Forces took control over the satellites.

Cosmos-2414 received international designation 2005-002A and NORAD catalog number 28521 (the Tatiana spacecraft – 2005-002C and 28523 respectively). According to NORAD data, Cosmos-2414 was deployed in an orbit with inclination of 82.95 degrees, orbital period of about 104 minutes, apogee of 960 km, and perigee of 917 km. This indicates that the satellite is a navigation satellite of the Parus system, which used these orbits in the past.

Tatiana (Universitetskiy) is a 30-kg scientific satellite, developed by scientists and sudents of the Moscow State University and the Military Space Academy.
