It is believed to be a satellite of a new type, identified as Garpun (Harpoon), which was developed to replace older Geizer satellites of the Potok system. This system was built to relay information from reconnaissance satellites in real time. The last Geizer satellite, Cosmos-2371 (26394), was launched in July 2000 and stopped operations in 2009.
