Kosmos 2224 (Russian: Космос 2224 meaning Cosmos 2224) is a Russian US-KMO missile early warning satellite which was launched in 1992 as part of the Russian Space Forces' Oko programme. The satellite is designed to identify missile launches using infrared telescopes.[1]

Kosmos 2224 was launched from Site 200/39 at Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan. A Proton-K carrier rocket with a DM-2 upper stage was used to perform the launch, which took place at 12:45 UTC on 17 December 1992.[2] The launch successfully placed the satellite into geostationary orbit. It subsequently received its Kosmos designation, and the international designator 1992-088A.[2] The United States Space Command assigned it the Satellite Catalog Number 22269.[2][3]

It was operational for 77 months, which was the longest of the US-KMO series until Kosmos 2379.[1][3]
