Kosmos-SKh

Kosmos-SKh [ISS Reshetnev]

The Russian Ministry of Agriculture has awarded a contract to Reshetnev Information Satellite Systems for the manufacture of three Kosmos-SKh satellites.

These Earth observation satellites are intended for remote sensing observations and monitoring of agricultural lands over the whole Russian territory.

Although an experimental qualification model was tested in 2010, the development was apparently cancelled.
