In 1991 Lavochkin NPO teamed up with NOOS Space Technologies Ltd. of Moscow to develop the Zerkalo spacecraft and telecommunications system. The Zerkalo spacecraft will take advantage of some of Coupon's systems but will be heavier at just over 3,000 kg and will use conventional antennas. The solar array will produce up to 2.96 kW with 1.4 kW available to the communications payload which will operate in the Ku-band with 10 transponders. The design life of the single spacecraft which will be stationed at 88.1 degrees E is 5-7 years. The first Zerkalo launch is planned for 1995 or later (References 288, 351, 356-358).
