Ukrainian technology satellite. Used in development of aerodynamic systems for stabilization and orientation of spacecraft. Also carried military optical equipment experiments. Technology, aerodynamic stabilization satellite built by Yuzhnoye, Russia. Launched 1967 - 1970. Used DS Bus.

Status: Operational 1967. First Launch: 1967-03-21. Last Launch: 1970-01-16. Number: 2 . Gross mass: 375 kg (826 lb).

The spacecraft was known as the "space arrow" due to its extended aerodynamic skirt stabilizer. This was the first spacecraft to use aerodynamic attitude control. It was also the only DS-series satellite to be equipped with attitude control.
