Abstract: A space project for studying ecological earth problems is being carried out by means of radio techniques. A 30 m prototype antenna has already been deployed and tested. The radio telescope will be launched in 1994 into a circular orbit having an altitude 600 km and an inclination of 65 deg. The planned mission time is 1.5 year or more; 25 percent of this will be available for VLBI observations at wavelengths 6 and 18 cm.
