ISS orbit was successfully adjusted according to the station’s flight program on January 28, 2015.

According to the calculations by MCC ballistic and navigational support service the thrusters of European ATV-5 cargo vehicle were ignited at 21.40, Moscow time, and have been operating for 288,7 seconds, the station got deceleration of 0,68 m/s.

As a result of this maneuver the medium altitude of the station decreased by 1,2 km and amounted to 404,5 km.

After station reboost maneuver the ISS parameters are as follows:

-minimum altitude: 403,13 km;

-maximum altitude: 418,91 km;

-orbit time: 92,59 minutes;

-orbit inclination – 51,66 degrees

The adjustment was accomplished to provide working orbit for the future docking of progress M-26M cargo vehicle with the ISS.
