Khrunichev State Research and Production Space Center
Kupon (K95K) was a communication satellite originally developed by Lavochkin for the third generation GKKRS (Global Space Command and Communications System). The project was cancelled with the breakup of the Soviet Union, and instead Kupon became the first communications satellite for the Russian banking system. The satellite was owned by the Russian Federation Central Bank (and possibly Global Information Systems of Moscow) and relayed financial data for the Bankir network.
The trajectory is unavailable. Check back for updates.
