As a result the station got velocity increment of 0,55 m/s.
After the maneuver station’s orbit increased by 1 km and amounted to 401.9 km. Other parameters are as follows:
Minimum altitude above the Earth surface – 401,8 km;
Maximum altitude above the Earth surface – 419,3 km;
Orbit time – 92,541 min;
Orbit inclination – 51,665 degrees
The orbit was adjusted to form station’s working orbit to provide for Soyuz TMA-16M spacecraft landing planned for September 12.
