RSC Energia: Progress MS-03 cargo spacecraft is in orbit

July 17, 2016

Today, July 17, the new-series cargo transportation spacecraft Progress MS-03 developed and built by RSC Energia and launched from the Baikonur launch site has successfully reached a low Earth orbit and entered a trajectory towards the International Space Station (ISS).

The medium launch vehicle (LV) Soyuz-U carrying Progress MS-03 cargo spacecraft was launched from Area 31 of the Baikonur Cosmodrome at 00:41:45 Moscow Time. At the expected time specialists detected the shutdown of the engine on the third stage of the launch vehicle and separation of the spacecraft in the orbit of the artificial Earth satellite.

The spacecraft carries onboard 2406 kg of various cargos, including 1230 kg of dry cargo, 705 kg of propellant in the refueling system tanks, 420 kg of water and 51 kg of compressed air. The Progress MS spacecraft total launch mass including cargoes was 7281 kg.

The spacecraft will deliver to the ISS cargoes for the Service Module (SM) Zvezda, including life support and individual crew protective equipment, storage battery for power supply system, sanitary-hygienic and medical equipment, consumables for gas analysis equipment and thermal control system equipment, equipment for maintenance and repair of onboard systems, tool belts, filters, water storage tanks, hoses, etc.

For the station crew, containers are prepared with food rations and a fresh food kit, as well as parcels with personal effects. Stowed in the cargo compartment of the spacecraft are onboard documentation packages, accessories and batteries for video and photographic equipment, equipment for scientific research and experiments. The Progress MS cargo spacecraft also carries onboard 22 kg of US hardware, in particular

The cargo spacecraft will use the classical two-day flight profile to rendezvous with the ISS. The docking of the logistics vehicle with the Pirs docking compartment (DC1) is to be automatically performed on July 19 at 03:22:53 Moscow Time during the 34th orbit of the spacecraft. The ISS crew will be monitoring the docking from onboard the space station.
