The working time of the engine system was 434 seconds.

As a result, the station received a speed increasing of 0.91 m / s.

According to the data of the ballistic-navigation support service of the Mission Control Center, the parameters of the ISS orbit after the maneuver were:

- the minimum height above the Earth’s surface is 406.6 km,

- the maximum height above the Earth’s surface is 428.5 km,

- period of circulation – 92.678 minutes,

- orbit inclination – 51.65 degrees.

The purpose of the correction was the formation of ballistic conditions for launching and docking of the “Soyuz MS-12″ spacecraft.
