Originally the satellite was to be built on the Spektr bus, a derivative of the Prognoz-EW-Bus and to be launched on a Proton-K Blok-DM-2 booster, but budget problems have forced a redesign. Now it will be based on the smaller Navigator bus and will be launched on a Zenit-3F combination.
The future of this project is uncertain.
