The Russian Obzor-R satellite is a planned X-band radar earth observation satellite designed by TsSKB-Progress.
In 2012, the devlopment of the Arkon-2M radar satellite was stopped and instead the development of the Obzor-R was initiated.
The satellite features the BRLK X-band Synthetic Aperture Radar as the imaging instrument with a ground resolution of 500 m.
The first satellite of the Obzor-R design is planned to be launched on a Soyuz-2-1a booster from the Vostochny cosmodrome in 2018.
