Russian earth land resources satellite. The 17F41 was the first of 4 models of the Resurs-F to fly. Earth Observation (film return) satellite built by TsSKB, Russia. Launched 1979 - 1986.

AKA: 17F41. Status: Operational 1979. First Launch: 1979-09-05. Last Launch: 1986-05-28. Number: 29 . Gross mass: 6,300 kg (13,800 lb).

The remote sensing satellite was dedicated to the investigation of the natural resources of the earth in the interests of various branches of the national economy of the USSR and international cooperation.

A decree of 5 May 1977 authorized development of three earth resource satellites. The Ministry of Defense was tasked with developing these systems, even though they did not contribute directly to any military mission. Despite this political decision, the orders were followed. One of these was Resurs-F, which became Fram, based on the Vostok bus.
