A third Lavochkin vision in association with Moscow NII Radiocommunication is the creation of a GEO and highly elliptical communications system analogous to Applied Mechanics' Marathon. Dubbed Geostar-MSS, the constellation would consist of three spacecraft in GEO and four spacecraft in Molniya-type orbits. The yet-to-be-defined satellites would be equipped with Ku-band transponders. The program appeared to be in an early stage of development in 1994, and no date for a first launch was set (Reference 359).
