Kosmos 2484 (Russian: Космос 2484 meaning Cosmos 2484) is a Russian military store-dump communications satellite launched in 2013, together with Kosmos 2483 and Kosmos 2482.

This satellite is a Strela-3M/Rodnik satellite, a modification of the civilian Gonets satellites.[3]

Kosmos 2484 was launched from site 133/3 at Plesetsk Cosmodrome in northern Russia. A rokot carrier rocket with a Briz-KM upper stage was used to perform the launch which took place at 16:24 UTC on 15 January 2013. The launch successfully placed the satellite into low earth orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the international designator 2013-001C. The United States Strategic Command (the successor of the United States Space Command) assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 39059.[3][4][5][6]

The launch was postponed from 8 December 2012 and was the first launch of a Rokot since the 28 July 2012 launch of Kosmos 2481, another Rodnik.[6]
