Ukrainian military anti-satellite system target satellite. Target for IS ASAT systems tests. ASAT target satellite built by OKB-586, Russia. Launched 1970 - 1982.

Status: Operational 1970. First Launch: 1970-12-22. Last Launch: 1982-06-06. Number: 15 . Gross mass: 600 kg (1,320 lb).

A lighter target that could be launched by the smaller Kosmos rocket replaced the first R-36 launched IS-P target. Developed by KB Yuzhnoye (KB-3 Section; Chief Designer V M Kovtunenko). Although it acted as a target for the IS anti-satellite system, it was designed for both anti-ballistic missile and anti-satellite testing. It was more than a passive target, including an impact registration system and elements of the hit (direction, velocity, etc.). First flight trials were in August 1970. It was in service from 1973 to 1983, at which time the Soviet Union unilaterally abandoned anti-satellite operations. An upgraded version flown from 1975 carried the code name Lira and had unknown differences to the original design.
