Nadezhda (meaning Hope) was a Russian search and relay spacecraft intended to locate ships or aircraft in distress. It was a member of the international COSPAS/SARSAT fleet of such satellites. Since the previous one was Nadezhda 5 (1998-072A/25567), this latest should be designated as Nadezhda 6. It was launched by a Cosmos-3M rocket from Plesetsk at 12:13 UT. The operating frequencies were the internationally dedicated 150.00 and 400.00 MHz.
