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.[1] It was built by the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau, and launched in 1967 as part of the Dnepropetrovsk Sputnik programme.[2]

Kosmos 152 was launched using a Kosmos-2I 63SM carrier rocket, which flew from Site 133/1 at Plesetsk Cosmodrome.[3] The launch occurred at 06:59:30 UTC on 25 March 1967.[4]

Kosmos 152 separated from its carrier rocket into a low Earth orbit with an apogee of 444 kilometres (276 mi), a perigee of 263 kilometres (163 mi), 70.9 degrees of inclination, and an orbital period of 91.62 minutes.[2][5] It decayed from orbit on 5 August.[5] Kosmos 152 was the seventh of seventy nine DS-P1-Yu satellites to be launched,[2] and the sixth of seventy two to successfully reach orbit.
