CONDUCTING THE EXPERIMENT:
One day before TCV Progress M undocks from ISS RS,
ISS-4 crew visually inspect, dismantle and transport
Transport and Launch Container (TLC) with the MS to
its installation location and install TLC into its
working position on the docking ring of the docking
assembly (these operations are to be filmed on video).
After TCV pulls away to a safe distance, on the command
from MCC-H, MS separates from TCV. As TCV with TLC
installed in it separates from ISS RS, video filming
shall be conducted from ISS RS by the crew using a
standard TV camera of the Service Module, and from
TCV using a standard video camera.
Successful deployment of the micro satellite and
return to Earth of a video cassette with a film showing
TCV undocking from from ISS and MS separation from
