Russian American Observational Satellites

RAMOS, an international cooperative program with the Russian Federation, was planned as a two-satellite constellation that would operate in approximately the same plane and altitude of around 500 kilometers. SDL, as the prime contractor for the RAMOS program, oversaw development activities for the US and Russian engineering teams.

In February 2004, MDA announced it was bringing the RAMOS program to an early closure due to lack of progress on finalizing a Government-to-Government agreement.
