This page contains (selected) philatelic information on the Kosmos-series satellites. Catalog numbers, years of issue, and notes on the satellites featured are given when available. If readers know of additional information or images, please contact the authors using the e-mail addresses at the bottom of this page.

The information provided must be prefaced by a disclaimer, in that factual information about Kosmos-series satellites was, and still is, very hard to obtain. Some of the Kosmos-series identifications may be speculative, or even incorrect and are therefore prefaced by "most-likely" or "possible" when they are questionable. The authors would appreciate any assistance in correcting or updating the information presented about Kosmos-series satellites.

See also the closely-related and equally-challenging Interkosmos-series satellites page.

1Kosmos-318/381 type (Ionosfernaya) are similar to Nadezhda, but lack the omni-directional antenna for COSPAS/SARSAT.
2The satellite on this item is often mis-interpreted as being Kosmos-3, since the stamp was issued on the launch date for Kosmos-3, 1962-04-24.
3See here for a list of engraved/lithographed Russian definitive pairs known to exist with satellite overprints.


Below is a list of Kosmos-series satellite launch covers (including anniversary-of-launch covers, and launch-related event covers).

1On the cachets of these covers, a common propaganda satellite design was intended as a substitute for actual satellite designs. For other examples, see the checklist for the Soviet propaganda-design satellite.
3Moscow Mezhdunarodnaya Kniga (Moscow International Book): see Jim Reichman's Commemorative Space Covers from Collector Clubs of the Soviet Union, 2008 (e-mail: jgreichman (at) datawest.net).
4Known fake cover, with a made-up Baikonur postmark, suspected to have been created by Boris Khoroshev from Moscow, and sold by a stamp dealer in Western Europe. There were no Baikonur Cosmodrome official postmarks until 1975 for the Apollo-Soyuz events. Reference the article written by Russian collector Oleg Vaisberg published as an Appendix called "Russian (Soviet) Space Covers" to Bruce Cranford's book Space Covers: Dictionary and Identifier. See also, an analysis of the situation in a book published in 2008 called Commemorative Space Covers from Collector Clubs of the Soviet Union, 1957 to 1980. Another indicator on these fakes is the use of a "first day" cachet that appears on most, but not all, of these fakes.
5AA no. = Tartuski Klub Kollektsionerov (TKK) [Tartu Collector Club] "Astronautika Annaalid" number. See Jim Reichman's Philatelic Study Report on Tartu Space Club Covers, 1962-1978, 2011. (e-mail: jgreichman (at) datawest.net).
6Kosmos-1079 and IK-19 were launched on the same date, and at the same launch site, but on different rockets.
