Launch vehicle with Progress M-29M spacecraft is on the launch pad

September 29, 2015

Today, September 29, the launch vehicle Soyuz-U integrated with the cargo transportation spacecraft Progress M-29M was rolled out of the processing facility and was erected on the launch pad of Area 1 ("Gagarin's launch pad") of the Baikonur cosmodrome.

Scheduled for the first launch day are general tests, telemetry data review and other launch preparation activities.

The launch of the Soyuz-U LV with Progress M-29M logistics spacecraft under the program of the International Space Station (ISS) is scheduled for Thursday, October 1, at 19:49:40 Moscow Time.

The spacecraft will deliver to the station 2369 kg of various cargos, including 1549 kg of dry cargo, 350 kg of propellant, 420 kg of water and 50 kg of compressed oxygen.

The logistics spacecraft of the new series Progress M-M developed and built by RSC Energia is an upgraded version of the Progress M spacecraft. It is equipped with new devices for the motion control and navigation system and an improved onboard measurement system. All the devices are built around state-of-the-art electronic components and run the latest software. The upgrade made it possible to reduce the mass of the onboard equipment and thus enhance the capability to deliver payload to orbit.

The spacecraft is designed to deliver to the International Space Station (ISS) dry cargo, propellant components, supplies of water and gas, to perform dynamic operations when attached to the space station using its own engines, as well as to evacuate waste and spent equipment from the station. Additional tasks of the spacecraft include conducting space experiments in free flight and flight developmental testing of onboard systems and their elements.

 

JSC RSC Energiais the leader in the rocket and space industry, and the prime contractor for manned space systems. The Corporation conducts work on the development of unmanned space and rocket systems (launch vehicles and orbital transfer vehicles), and high-technology systems for various non-space applications. Since August 2014, the Corporation is headed by Vladimir Lvovich Solntsev.
