Kosmos 116 (Russian: Космос 116 meaning Cosmos 116), also known as DS-P1-Yu No.6 was a Soviet satellite which was used as a radar calibration target for tests of anti-ballistic missiles.[3] It was built by the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau, and launched in 1966 as part of the Dnepropetrovsk Sputnik programme.[4]

Kosmos 116 was launched using a Kosmos-2M 63S1M carrier rocket,[5] which flew from Site 86/1 at Kapustin Yar.[6] The launch occurred at 10:04 GMT on 26 April 1966, and was successful.[7] Kosmos 116 separated from its carrier rocket into a low Earth orbit with a perigee of 289 kilometres (180 mi), an apogee of 451 kilometres (280 mi), an inclination of 48.4°, and an orbital period of 92.0 minutes. It decayed from orbit on 3 December 1966.[8] Kosmos 116 was the fifth of seventy nine DS-P1-Yu satellites to be launched,[4] and the fourth of seventy two to successfully reach orbit.
