GEO-IK 2 is designed to investigate Earth’s gravitational field. It will also gain data on the global displacement of the Earth’s crust, along with the study of sea surface heights and tidal movements. With a mass of 900 kilograms and an EPS capacity of 1000 W, the spacecraft has a designed lifetime of five years. It will conduct its work in a sun-synchronous orbit occupied at an altitude of 1000 kilometers. It will be joined by another spacecraft in the future, which was originally the plan for this mission.
