Soyuz Launches Kosmos 2370 Classified Satellite

More information:


A Russian Soyuz U launched a classified Kosmos 2370 satellite from Baikonur Cosmodrome, LC1, at 6:25 am PDT (1325 UTC) May 3, 2000. The launch vehicle placed the satellite in a 183 x 277 km x 64.8 initial orbit; which is expected to be raised to 240 x 300 km.

The Kosmos 2370 is thought to be a 17F117 Neman class advanced imaging reconnaissance satellite based on the TsSKB Progress Yantar'-4KS2 design. The Neman relays digital imagery to earth via geostationary comsats and is the Russian equivalent of the KH-11. The first Neman was February 7, 1986 as Kosmos-1731. The last Neman satellite, Kosmos 2359, reentered in Jul 1999 after 1 year in orbit.
