The Okean-O series were operational satellites for monitoring of ocean surfaces. They were follow-ons for the experimental Okean-E and Okean-OE satellites. achteOne spacecraft in orbit provides a full coverage of the entire Russian Arctic water surface with imagery data for 3-5 days.
The satellites were based on the Tselina-D bus and carried an X-band Side Looking Real Aperture Radar, passive MW radiometers and multispectral scanners measuring the emission radiation of the atmosphere/ocean system.
They carried following instruments:
The first two satellites were launched under the Kosmos designation, while later satellites were launched under the designation Okean. The eighth satellite was renamed Sich 1 and operated as a joint Ukrainian and Russian project.
