The new year will be a busy one for the Russian space program with 13 satellite launches and two manned missions on the schedule.

The list released Friday by Russia's Federal Space Agency included six satellites that will provide global navigation services and another three that will handle broadcast and communications.

Russia's Interfax news agency said the manned Soyuz missions would be aimed at re-supplying the International Space Station. There will also be five Progress-M supply ships dispatched to the orbiting station.

There was no word on any expected military or intelligence satellite launches.

On the ground, the space agency will begin construction of a new space center in central Russia.
