Kosmos 148 (Russian: Космос 148 meaning Cosmos 148), also known as DS-P1-I No.2 was a satellite which was used as a radar target for anti-ballistic missile tests. It was launched by the Soviet Union in 1967 as part of the Dnepropetrovsk Sputnik programme, and had a mass of 325 kilograms (717 lb).
It was launched aboard a Kosmos-2I 63SM rocket, from Site 133/1 at Plesetsk. The launch occurred at 17:30 GMT on 16 March 1967. This was the first DS-P1-I launch to use the Kosmos-2I 63SM, which replaced the earlier 63S1 model. It was also the first launch from Site 133 at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome.
Kosmos 148 was placed into a low Earth orbit with a perigee of 270 kilometres (170 mi), an apogee of 404 kilometres (251 mi), an inclination of 71.0°, and an orbital period of 91.3 minutes. It decayed from orbit on 7 May 1967.
