According to telemetry data the engines operated for 598 seconds. As a result of this of this dynamical operation the ISS got 1,45 m/s velocity increment.

Average altitude of the station orbit increased by 2,5 km and amounted to 417,2 km.

After station reboost maneuver the ISS parameters are as follows:

- Minimal altitude over the Earth’s surface – 414,1 km
- Maximum altitude over the earth’s surface – 435,94  km
- Orbit time -92,866  minutes
- Inclination – 51,672 degrees
