Int'l Code: 2014-037B
Perigee: 625.6 km
Apogee: 816.7 km
Inclination: 98.0 °

Semi major axis: 7092 km
RCS: Unknown
Launch date: July 8, 2014

MKA PN2 (RELEK) was designed to give Russian scientists a brand-new orbital tool for studying charged particles in the radiation belt of the Earth for the first time since the Koronas-F spacecraft was launched more than a decade earlier and stopped working in 2005. This field is critical for the fundamental geophysics research and also has practical applications in the field of the so-called "space weather" affecting various sectors of modern economy. The mission would also give young Russian scientists a chance to participate in the development of cutting-edge geophysical and astrophysical instruments and in the analysis of their data.
