Single-satellite programme, initially intended as a series, for operational ocean observation.
Follow-on of the Okean-O1 series. Main improvements: sunsynchronous orbit and more, improved instruments.
Joint Russia-Ukraine programme: NSAU responsible for the development of the space segment, with support from Roscosmos; RosHydroMet responsible of operations.
Satellites actively stabilised over three axes.
Design lifetime: 3 years.
The satellite exploited a sunsynchronous orbit.
