Roscosmos. Planned orbital reboost of the ISS is completed

January 24, 2019

According to the International Space Station Program on January 23, 2020 a two-phase orbital reboost of the station was performed.

The propulsion system of Progress MS-13 cargo vehicle docked to PIRS module was activated at 17:15 Moscow time. The engines operation for 563 seconds resulted in the ISS velocity increment of 0.56 m/s. At 20:23 Moscow time the vehicle engines were re-activated, their operation time was already 282 seconds. As a result the station acquired a velocity increment of 0,28 m/s.

According to the data of the TsNIIMash Mission Control Center (MCC) ballistic and navigation support service, following the two-phase orbital reboost the station orbital parameters were as follows:

  • period of revolution 92,896 min;
  • orbit inclination 51,66 deg;
  • minimum altitude above the Earth surface 415,9 km;
  • maximum altitude above the Earth surface 437,0 km.

The first correction maneuver in 2020 was performed for providing ballistic conditions to ensure Soyuz MS-13, Soyuz MS-16 and Soyuz MS-15 spacecraft flight program.
