Cosmos 2174



Cosmos 2174 was a variation of the Yantar-class spacecraft that conducted high-precision topographic surveys. This Kometa spacecraft was distinguished by its relatively circular orbit between 210 and 280 km. It was launched from the Baikonur cosmodrome into an inclination of 60 - 70 degrees. It was believed to carry the TK-35010-m resolution stereo camera system, produced by the Belarus Optical Camera Company, with an Earth's surface field-of-view of 180 km by 270 km, and the KVR-1002-m resolution camera system with an image field-of view of 40 km by 40 km.
