Kosmos 176 (Russian: Космос 176 meaning Cosmos 176), also known as DS-P1-Yu No.10 was a Soviet satellite which was used as a radar calibration target for tests of anti-ballistic missiles. It was built by the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau, and launched in 1967 as part of the Dnepropetrovsk Sputnik programme.[1]

A Kosmos-2I 63SM carrier rocket was used to launch Kosmos 176 from Site 133/1 at Plesetsk Cosmodrome.[2] The launch occurred at 17:00 UTC on 12 September 1967, and resulted in Kosmos 176's successful deployment into Low earth orbit.[3]

Kosmos 176 was operated in an orbit with a perigee of 193 kilometres (120 mi), an apogee of 1,395 kilometres (867 mi), 81.9 degrees of inclination, and an orbital period of 100.74 minutes.[1][4] It remained in orbit until it decayed and reentered the atmosphere on 3 March 1968.[4] It was the tenth of seventy nine DS-P1-Yu satellites to be launched,[1] and the ninth of seventy two to successfully reach orbit.[5]
