Kosmos 467 (Russian: Космос 467 meaning Cosmos 467), known before launch as DS-P1-Yu No.45, was a Soviet satellite which was launched in 1971 as part of the Dnepropetrovsk Sputnik programme. It was a 325-kilogram (717 lb) spacecraft, which was built by the Yuzhnoye Design Bureau, and was used as a radar calibration target for anti-ballistic missile tests.
Kosmos 467 was successfully launched into low Earth orbit on 17 December 1971, with the rocket lifting off at 10:39:58 UTC. The launch took place from Site 133/1 at the Plesetsk Cosmodrome, and used a Kosmos-2I 63SM carrier rocket.
Upon reaching orbit, it was assigned its Kosmos designation, and received the International Designator 1971-113A. The North American Aerospace Defense Command assigned it the catalogue number 05704.
Kosmos 467 was the forty-ninth of seventy nine DS-P1-Yu satellites to be launched, and the forty-fourth of seventy two to successfully reach orbit. It was operated in an orbit with a perigee of 262 kilometres (163 mi), an apogee of 450 kilometres (280 mi), 70.9 degrees of inclination, and an orbital period of 91.7 minutes. It remained in orbit until it decayed and reentered the atmosphere on 18 April 1972.
