According to the ISS flight schedule station reboost maneuver was carried out on July 10, 2013.
In accordance with TSNIIMASH ballistics and navigational support service calculations the engines of ATV-4 “Albert Einstein” European cargo vehicle were run at 09.35 Moscow time. 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
The maneuver was carried out to create ISS working orbit before Progress M-20M cargo vehicle flight planned for July 28, 2013.
