Russian earth environment satellite. Study 1984. A 15 metric ton maneuverable satellite, consisting of an engine unit and a satellite collection mechanism, would maneuver at geosynchronous altitude in orbits with inclinations of between 0 and 14 degrees.
Status: Study 1984. Gross mass: 15,000 kg (33,000 lb).
The spacecraft would collect dead communications satellites and move them from the geosynchronous orbit zone. An operating life of six months was expected.
