Molniya-Yu
Part of KAUR-2 Family
Russian tracking network technology satellite. Study 1969. This was a modification of the Molniya-1 satellite to test deep space radio-based tracking methods for the Soviet Lunar program.

Status: Study 1969.

The Soviet manned lunar programs needed to test new tracking methods - how to translate Doppler and location readings into orbital parameters quickly in order to make maneuvers in lunar and translunar orbit. To investigate this Ryazanskiy modified a Molniya-1 spacecraft with measuring systems in place of the retransmitter. This Molniya-Yu was used to confirm new methods of orbital measurement.
