A 1992 Lavochkin project called Monitor envisioned a small, 600-kg spacecraft launched by a Kosmos booster for moderate resolution Earth observations in the 0.4-12.5 micrometer band.

The Monitor-E prototype launched 11 years later was of similar size and was equipped with 8-meter and 20-meter resolution cameras. It was said to use a Yachta bus.
