The Kanopus-V No. 3 and No. 4 satellites were virtually identical to the original Kanopus satellite launched in 2012. Like their predecessors, they are officially intended for monitoring natural and man-made disasters, such as forest fires and environmental contamination. They can also be used for monitoring agricultural activities, water resources and land use, cartography and other observations in the interests of ministries and agencies of the Russian Federation, according to Roskosmos.
