Kosmos 152 (Russian: Космос 152 meaning Cosmos 152), also known as DS-P1-Yu No.7 was a Soviet satellite which was used as a radar calibration target for tests of anti-ballistic missiles.[2] It was built by the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau, and launched in 1967 as part of the Dnepropetrovsk Sputnik programme,[3] and had a mass of 325 kilograms (717 lb).[1]

Kosmos 152 was launched using a Kosmos-2I 63SM carrier rocket, which flew from Site 133/3 at Plesetsk Cosmodrome.[4] The launch occurred at 06:57 GMT on 25 March 1967.[5]

Kosmos 152 separated from its carrier rocket into a low Earth orbit with a perigee of 272 kilometres (169 mi), an apogee of 488 kilometres (303 mi), an inclination of 71.0°, and an orbital period of 92.2 minutes.[6] It decayed from orbit on 5 August 1967.[7] Kosmos 152 was the seventh of seventy nine DS-P1-Yu satellites to be launched,[3] and the sixth of seventy two to successfully reach orbit.
