RSC Energia: Processing of Progress MS-09 logistics spacecraft at Baikonur

June 25, 2018

Pre-launch processing continues at Baikonur cosmodrome of the cargo transportation spacecraft Progress MS-09. Specialists from Roscosmos companies have conducted tests of the solar arrays of the cargo spacecraft.

The tests include deployment of solar array panels and their inspection with subsequent exposure to illumination from special lights while monitoring the level of electric current in the onboard cabling of the spacecraft in order to verify circuit continuity and functionality of critical elements in the power supply system.

Currently under way are the final processing operations before Progress MS-09 is loaded with propellant. Scheduled for June 27-28 are operations to fill the cargo spacecraft with propellant components.

The launch of the cargo spacecraft Progress MS-09 on the launch vehicle Soyuz-2.1a from Launch Pad 6 of Area 31 of the Baikonur Cosmodrome is scheduled for July 10, 2018.
