STS-122/1E STP Notes and Flight Plan Walkthrough

Generic Items

Flight Duration 11+1+2: At some point after launch, the extra day will most likely be added to the mission. The extra day can either accommodate a FD04 rndz, Focused Inspection beyond the 4.5 hours in the timeline, potential TPS repair prep time, or an extra docked day to work on Columbus outfitting activities.

  • EVAs

  • All nominal EVAs are performed using the ISS airlock and the campout prebreathe protocol.

  • MS2 and MS3 perform EVAs 1 & 2 while MS2 and MS4 perform EVA3. STS CDR and ISS CDR are the suit-up IVs for all three EVAs while PLT is the task IV.

  • All three EVAs use METOX

  • All EVA tool battery chargins is performed using a Battery Stowage Assembly (BSA) charger. BSA charging for REBA, helmet light, and PGT batteries takes ~12 hours while EMU battery charging takes ~20 hours. EMU battery inits require a 4-hour cool down and thus are scheduled the day after EVAs.

  • METOX regen is performed in Post EVA for all EVAs. METOX regen terms are required at least 14 hours after the inits.

  • On days prior to EVAs, 2 crewmembers are required to install METOX & EMU batteries, and 3 are required for E/L Prep and EVA Tool Config.

  • Columbus Notes

  • Columbus is ingressed on FD05. For the partial ingress performed early in the day by FE-2, PPEs (mask and goggles) must be worn. The PPE requirement applies to any crewmember that enters the Columbus modules before the Cabin Fan has been activated for 40 minutes and scrubbed the cabin air of any potential debris.

  • Columbus has 4 payload racks: Biolab (BLB), FSL, EDR, and EPM

  • During the mission, 3 of these racks will be relocated and each rack will have an umbilical mate. There are some required powerdowns (documented in FR 1E_C9-1) for the individual umbilical mates.

  • EPM & FSL: only require Power Distribution Unit (PDU) powerdown

    EDR: PDU + DDCU N2P2A or N2P3A

    BLB: PDU + DDCU N2D1B or N2D4B

    Water Flow Selection Valve (WFSV) close prior to each mate

    WFSV open is part of the rack activation procedure and will not be a separate activity.

    The FSL umbilical mate can be performed before working on the rear of the rack.

  • Biolab - The Biolab facility, located in the Columbus lab, supports biological experiments on micro-organisms, cells, tissue cultures, small plants, and small invertebrates. There are several Biolab activities completed by MS3. At the start of the day, the Zero G Stowage Rack (ZSR) must be relocated and k-bar capture mechanisms in Bay A2 must be installed before the Biolab relocation can begin.

  • European Drawer Rack (EDR) - The EDR provides room for sub-rack payloads in International drawers and lockers within International payload racks.

  • EECOM/ECLSS Items

  • A total of 13 CWC fills and 9 PWRs are filled and transferred to ISS. CWCs and PWRs cannot be filled at the same time since EECOM would not be able to tell how much water is in each bag. PWR fills cannot occur during supply nozzle dumps. A cue card listing all the water fill requirements will be uplinked on FD02.

  • Nozzle dumps are scheduled on FD03 (pre-docking), FD07 (docked), FD10 (post undock), and FD11 (EOM-1). CWCs are dumped from the waste nozzle and PWRs from the supply nozzle. Therefore, a combination of waste/CWC and supply/PWR dumps can occur simo if two crewmembers are available.

  • Carbon Dioxide Monitor (CDM) ops are scheduled 4 times during the flight. A CDM activation is scheduled just prior to sleep and a CDM deactivation is scheduled immediately following wake-up.A CDM battery change-out is scheduled before the CDM is activated again.

  • ISS Crew Rotation: 12 hours of handover is required between FE-2(UP) and FE-2(DN). These 12 hours can be accomplished by either face-to-face handover time or functional handover, where an experienced ISS crewmember demonstrates real-time ISS ops (OJT). The current plan has 12.5 hours of handover (9 hours face-to-face and 3.5 hours functional)

  • ISS Crew Work Day Length:

  • ISS CDR & FE-1 (Peggy Whitson & Yuri Malenchenko): 6.5 hrs/day; 2.5 hrs of exercise

  • FE-2 (Dan Tani): 7 hrs/day; 2 hrs of exercise (preferably all TVIS)

  • FE-2 EXP16 (Leo Eyharts):

  • FD04 & 05: 6.5 hrs/day, no exercise, 2.5 hrs adaptation/day

    FD06 & 07; 8 hrs/day; no exercise; 1 hr adaptation/day

    FD08 to EOM: 8 hrs/day, 1hr exercise/day, no adaptation

  • Ref GR&C Pt2 3.12.3.2 crew time table

  • Transfer: 30 hours of transfer is required. Only Middeck transfer is required for this mission.

    IMU Star of Opportunity Aligns are scheduled daily.

    Docked Maneuvers: The Shuttle maneuvers the stack for post docking TEA, water dumps, reboost (if required), and undock attitude. ISS maneuvers the stack to the new TEA after Columbus install. CDR or PLT update Universal Pointing after the ISS TEA attitude changes in the event that Shuttle must take attitude control.

    Attitude Control Plan: During the crew day, the Motion Control System is configured to H/O to the Shuttle for LOAC cases; during the crew night, the MCS is configured to H/O to the RS segment for LOAC cases. There are ADCO activities during pre & post sleep for these configurations.

    ISS TLM Packets: ACS (ADCO Acts): ESS = all; HK1=K or L; HK2=all CBM Ops: ESS = all; HK1=all; HK2=K ROBO Ops: ESS = all; HK1=J; HK2=all Columbus Final Act: ESS = all; HK1=L; HK2=all

    DAPs: The nominal undocked DAP is A1 and the nominal docked DAP is A12. DAP A14 is required for undocked OBSS operations.

    APCUs: APCUs 1 & 2 each power a string of the Columbus shell heaters while berthed in the payload bay. APCU 2 powers the OBSS sensor package 2 (LCS, IDC) while the OBSS is unberthed.

    Reboost: There is a reboost place holder in the plan on FD09. STS prop margins and ISS altitude strategy will determine if the reboost is performed or not.

    Docked Comm: Hardline A/G comm through DAIU is non-operable possibly due to corrosion in the ODS cable. Therefore, the SSOR RF radio is used for all docked A/G communication. Hardline ICOM through DAIU is still functional so that is used for ship-toship communications. SSOR is activated in the RNDZ timeline and is deactivated post undock. SSOR was not used in the past for this function because it uses more power. The use of SSOR will required the crew not turn off UHF at all while docked, including during PMCs and EVAs. The detailed pages omit steps 37 and 67 in Post EVA which turn off UHF. These steps will not be deleted generically because the procedure is used for both joint and stage EVAs. The other steps to turn off UHF in EVA Prep and Post EVA were permanently deleted from the procedures.

    PMCs are scheduled in presleep and on the morning of EVAs and performed via A/G. The FD06 PMC is scheduled via OCA to verify Netmeeting operation prior to the PFCs on FD07. The crew should not turn off UHF for docked PMCs.

    PAO Events:

    Ku Masking: From the 118 lessons learned, the ROBO and EVA Ku box transitions will be shown on OSTP in the MCC Coord band and highlighted in magenta text. The SRMS and OBSS no longer require Ku masking.

    IWIS: IWIS data takes are schedule for docking, Columbus mating, undocking and maybe a dedicated RS thruster firing.

  • On-orbit SBDIs, DTOs, and SDTOs

  • SBDI 1634 (Sleep Short): MS1, MS2, and MS4 are scheduled to complete sleep logs at wake-up. The subjects wear Actiwatch activity monitors (watches) throughout the mission. The EV crew doff their watches prior to EVAs.

  • SBDI 1490B (PMZ): MS2 and MS3 are scheduled to complete logs at wake-up. The subjects wear Actiwatche activity monitors (watches) throughout the mission. (MS2 only wears 1 watch and performs 1 sleep log per day and both 1490B and 1634 are accomplished.) In addition, if a crewmember activates the PMZ protocol (helps with motion sickness), 8 saliva samples will be required.

  • SBDI 1503-S (Midodrine) is performed by MS3 and MS4 between the deorbit burn and entry.

  • SBDI 1900 (Integrated Immune): MS3 and MS4 are scheduled for the saliva samples and blood draws. They provide liquid saliva samples at wake-up every other day starting FD03. Also on FDx and EOM-1, dry saliva samples are scheduled at wakeup, w/u+30 min, w/u+6hrs, w/u+10hrs, and just prior to sleep. The participants also provide a blood sample on EOM-1. ISS CDR, FE-2 (dn), and FE-2 (up) are also scheduled for a similar Integrated Immue experiment. They provide liquid saliva samples at wakeup and dry saliva samples throughout a day late in the docked timeframe. They also provide blood samples as late as possible. MS1 draws all blood samples, and all samples return on the Shuttle.

  • DTO 853 Carbon Dioxide Monitor (CDM) is operated over five sleep periods during the mission to measure CO2 concentrations. The CDM is activated during sleep periods when all shuttle crew are in the middeck and not in the ISS iarlock for campout. CDM is activated just prior to sleep and deactivated immediately upon wake-up so that there is minimal disturbance to the air mixing at five middeck measurement locations. After each data take, a batter changeout is performed anytime during the day and the monitoring device is relocated to a different spot in the middeck.

  • MUS (MS3 and FE-2 up) and MOP (FE-2 up) are European DTO questionairres

  • Robotics

    Manipulator Control Interface Unit (MCIU) filter screen checks are scheduled daily, except on days when standard Filter Check is scheduled.

    Flight Day 1 - Ascent

  • Standard Activities

  • After Post Insertion, FD01 standard activities are scheduled, which include: NC1 OMS burn, Aft Controller C/O, Elevon Park, RMS On Orbit Init, GIRA Install, APCU Activation, Group B Powerdown, Load DAPS, APU Reconfig, OCAC Setup, SSV Setup, and Shuttle Emergency Eyewash (SEE) Setup. Per crew agreement, RMS C/O is not scheduled until FD02.

  • Columbus and ICC-lite heaters are activated by activating APCUs 1 and 2 as soon as possible after PI.

    PGSC Setup is performed per the nominal usage chart and a late update is performed. WLES is activated.

    Ascent Imagery: ET Handheld photos and ET Umbilical well photos are downloaded twice per the procedure. ET video is downlinked over Ku.

    RMS: RMS On-orbit init is performed followed by the initial MCIU filter check. RMS powerup and checkout will be performed on FD02.

  • P/TV01 is the general setup of camera equipment for the mission. The first few steps of the setup procedure are required prior to playing back the ET video. At least one hour of P/TV01 video setup is required prior to TPS inspection on FD02. Steps 1-9 are the minimum requirement for inspection. Additional time is scheduled on FD02.

    Bleed Orifice is installed. This activity was permanently removed from the prelseep procedure and should be hard scheduled on FD01.

    DCS Date/Time Set activity was removed from the eZ block and hard scheduled per 118 lessons learned.

    Payloads

  • Actiwatch: MS2-MS4 and FE-2 up all don actiwacatches on this day. MS1, MS2, and MS4 don the watch in participation with the sleep short SBDI. MS2 and MS3 don the wach in participation with the PMZ SBDI.

  • Flight Day 2 - Inspection & RNDZ Prep

    RNDZ Burns: NC2 and NC3 rendezvous burns are planned to allow adequate time for OBSS surveys. NPC burn exists in FDO's plan, but is not scheduled since it will likely be combined with anouther burn.

    P/TV01 Setup: Time is allotted for completion of these setups if required.

  • TPS Surveys

  • All RCC is inspected during the OBSS Starboard Wing, Nose Cap, and Port Wing surveys. The two wing surveys also cover most of the areas of the crew cabin. The OMS pos is inspected using a handlheld camera to take pictures from the aft flight deck windows.

  • The OBSs survey procedures incorporate the use of supplemental IDC images during LDRI scans, thus reducing the likelihood of needing Focused Inspection. The starboard wing survey is scheduled for 1:45, the nose cap for 1:00, and the port wing for 2:00. The OBSS unberth procedure incorporates the LDRI 3D calibration and the starboard survey the flat field calibration.

  • Three crewmembers are required continuously during the surveys, two for the SRMS/OBSS ops and one to operate the situational awareness cameras and sensors. Only two crewmembers are required during unberthing and berthing operations (non-laser ops).

  • Per CDR request, each robotics crewmember has one robotic activity OFF during the day. No crewmember should be scheduled for all robotics ops on this day.

  • Scans of the entire starboard wing are not easily performed, or are impossible to perform while docked, and so are scheduled first. The surveys are scheduled to continue through the night passes, but the crew may elect to pause if the night time visuals are not sufficient.

  • The LDRI survey attitude requires no sun within a +/-20 degree field of view (FOV) of the laser bore-sight. Additionally, no sun can be within a 10 degree half-cone directly behind the instrument; however it is highly desired to keep the sun at a 90 degree half cone behind the instrument as long as it's not directly behind.

  • Real-time Ku is desired (not required) during the LDRI 3D calibration in OBSS unberth. Each surface scan requires as much real-time Ku as possible to downlink DTV using TDRS E or W (not TRDS Z).

  • Intertial attitudes are scheduled to maximize Ku and to optimize LDRI lighting. Specifically, the wing attiudes put the sun on the wing in the X-Y plane ~60 degrees from the nose, and the nose cap attitude puts the sun on the nose pitched down 30 degrees to avoid sun in the crew's eyes. All maneuvers are scheduled to occur during RMS/OBSS repositioning. If maneuvers are requred during the survey, scanning will be paused. VERN/ALT attitude hold is acceptable for LDRI. DAP A14 is loaded per the unberth procedure and is sued throughout the surveys. The attitude maneuvers are choreographed so to not conflict with OBSS/DAP constraints. The maneuver to nose cap is performed during a 10-minute gap between the starboard wing and nose cap surveys. This is because nose jets are inhibited and ALT/Tail-only is selected almost immediatesly into the nose cap survey. The maneuver to port survey is scheduled 10 minutes into the procedure. This is because free drift is selected in step 3. The maneuver to comm attitude is scheduled after OBSS berthing due to a free drift period in the berth procedure.

  • Any video not obtained real-time is downlinked after all survey are complete. INCO provides LOS times in order to help the crew cue the tapes. Note that TDRS E or W must be used as TDRS Z does not have the capability for DTV and cannot be used to downlink critical damage video.

  • IDC images obtained during the survey are downlinked via OCA.

  • P/TV08 is setup for the OMS Pod Survey. The OMS pod survey requires day light, and either -ZLV (Earthshine setting) or -ZSI (Sunlit setting). Note that there is a 3 hour maximum -ZSI limit while undocked.

  • The OBSS berth procedure leaves the SRMS in pre-cradle where it is parked overnight.

  • APCU 2 powers sensor package 2 and must be turned off prior to OBSS unberth and berth due to a saftey inhibit. The timeline callsout for the crew to turn off APCU 2 prior to OBSS Unberth. During OBSS berth, APCU 2 is deactived in LCH deact. The timeline calls out for APCU 2 to be reactivated during the end of the OBSS berth procedure. APCU 1 remains on throughout the day to provide power to the Columbus module shell heaters.

    EVA Prep: Two EMUs are checked out and the EMUs and other EVA tools are prepared for transfer to ISS.

    RNDZ Prep Activities: Centerline Camera Install and ODS Ring Extension cannot occur during OBSS surveys due to a camera view constraint and are thus scheduled after OBSS berth. Centerline Camera Install must occur before ODS Ring Extension. Rndz Tools Checkout must be decoupled with the surveys because the surveys require RSAD and DOUG on the PGSCs while the Rndz Tools Checkout requires RPOP.

    Transfer: FE-2 up performs Transfer Prep.

    CWC Setup: CWC fill hardware is setup for CWC fills post docking. The first CWC fill is schedued immediately following the CWC hardware setup.

    Generic Activities: Cryo O2 Snsr Check, Water Spray Boiler (WSB) controller swap, FC manual purge, FC Monitoring, Ergometer setup, and filter cleaning are performed. FCMS ops must be decoupled with SRMS ops and Rndz Tools Checkout due to PGSC limitations.

  • Payloads

  • Sleep Log: MS1-MS4 all perform sleep log upon wakeup. MS1, MS2, and MS4 perform the log as participation in the sleep short SBDI. MS2 and MS3 fill out the log as participation in the PMZ SBDI.

  • MUS and MOP: At the end of the work day, FE-2 (up) completes the MOP questionaire and MS43 and FE-2 (up) both complete the MUS questionaire.

  • CDM (DTO 853) is setup any time in the day, and the first activation occurs right before sleep.

  • Maneuvers: Prior to crew sleep, the CDR future loads the maneuver for the FD03 simo dump. The maneuver starts just before crew wakeup on FD03.

    Flight Day 3 - Rendezvous

  • Comm Items

  • The Orbital Interface Unit (OIU) is activated during the RNDZ timeframe.

  • DOCK AUDIO:The Docked Audio Setup is performed after docking to tie A/G1 and S/G1 together.

  • The SSV outrate is changed to 3 during ISS RNDZ ops.

  • The SSV outrate is changed to 2 post-docking.

  • BPSMU/RWS routes the STS camera views to the RWS

  • EECOM/ECLSS Items

  • A Simo Dump (Waste & Water) is scheduled to start immediately after crew wake. Prior to the dump, the orbiter maneuvers to the water dump attitude via a future loaded maneuver.

  • An N2 repress is completed during the RNDZ timeframe and is 1 hour in duration.

  • Condensate CWC setup is performed on this day.

  • During O2 RCNFG/PURGE, the O2 system will first be configured to purge the Node 2 O2 system and then reconfigured to allow the Orbiter to provide O2 for the EMU prebreathe. The duration of this activity is longer than usual in order to accommodate for Node 2 O2 purge. An O2 purge is required because particulate (contaminate) matter was discovered in the Node 2 High Pressure Oxygen Recharge Line during KSC operations, which violated cleanliness regulations. O2 Purge Prep is scheduled on the ISS prior to docking. The ISS crew will prep the Node 2 Oxygen lines for purge. A prep work activity following the O2 Reconfig/Purge activity is scheduled to allow for extra time in case the O2 Purge runs long. The Shuttle CDR is not required for all steps in O2 Purge and may move on to robotic activities as not to delay the OBSS handoff.

  • EVA Items

  • Prior to docking, the EMUs are removed from the Orbiter airlock (EMU RMVL) so they are not in the way during hatch open and ingress. After docking, the EMUs will be transferred to the ISS. Additionally during MDDK PREP, EMU drink bags for EVA1 are filled.

  • EV and IV crewmembers prepare for EVA1 by transferring EVA equipment to the ISS airlock, installing and checking out the REBA, and prepping the equipment lock.

  • MS2/EV1 and MS3/EV2 perform campout procedures at the end of FD03. The EVA crewmembers will initiate repress on the morning of FD04 when 8 hours, 40 minutes at 10.2 psi has elapsed.

  • All crew members participate in an EVA1 procedure review prior to presleep.

  • CSA O2 CAL: Required prior to E-lk prep. The hardware for this calibration will be transferred in a CTB from the STS middeck after hatch opening.

  • Ingress

  • After docking, leak checks are performed on the PMA and ODS. Additionally the ODS is prepared for ingress by the removal of the C/L camera. P/TV04 supports hatch opening and ingress. A safety briefing takes place after ingress.

  • The STS booster fan is activated in the ODS Prep for Ingress procedure.

  • Maneuvers

  • After docking, the Shuttle maneuvers the stack to the Biased -XLV -ZVV attitude. Group B powerdown is also scheduled in this timeframe. There is no longer a requirement for us to wait for maneuver complete prior to retracting the set per the powerdown. Before opening the hatch, the Orbiter hands over attitude control to the ISS CMGs. The ISS maintains attitude control during the majority of the docked timeframe.

  • Payloads

  • CDM (DTO 853) is powered off immediately after wakeup.

  • Sleep Log: MS1 and MS4 perform sleep log upon wakeup. This log is is participation in the sleep short SBDI. MS2 and MS3 do not perform a sleep log on this day because they are at their minimum PSA requirements.

  • Saliva: MS4 performs his first liquid saliva sample for the integrated immune SBDI.

  • PGSC Items

  • After docking, the PGSC network is configured from a RNDZ configuration to the nominal docked ops configuration.

  • Photo TV Items

  • P/TV02 DOCK S/U is setup for RNDZ and docking.

  • P/TV04 SETUP is for ISS ingress.

  • P/TV05 SETUP is for comm and video transfer between ISS and Shuttle. The first 20 minutes is to configure the RWS video cables and is performed prior to the safety brief on the Shuttle side. The last 20 minutes is to connect cables for BPSMU & RWS and is performed after the safety brief on the ISS. Docking video playback is scheduled after hatch open.

  • PLAYBACK OPS are scheduled to downlink any docking video to the ground.

  • RNDZ Items

  • The Orbiter rendezvous with the ISS. The Shuttle will perform the RBAR Pitch Maneuver (RPM) when it is 600 ft away from the ISS. At the same time, the ISS crew is taking pictures of the Orbiter belly to search for tile damage. The images are transferred via image card and downlinked via ISS OCA.

  • During docking, all ISS crew members are configuring PMA2 (located on Node 2) for docking. All 3 crew members are scheduled; instead of the usual 2 since this is the first time the shuttle is docking to Node 2.

  • Robotics Activities

  • Immediately after docking, the SRMS is configured to the pre-grapple (PGRPL) position for the OBSS handoff from the SSRMS (based on Node 2) to the SRMS.

  • After the safety brief, the SSRMS grapples the OBSS, the MRLs are released, and the SSRMS maneuvers to the handoff position. After MS4 sets-up the RMS workstation, CDR & MS4 grapple the OBSS with the SRMS. The SSRMS then hands-off the OBSS to the SRMS. Lastly, the CDR & MS4 maneuver the RMS to the Columbus viewing position for EVA1 activities, and FE-2(UP) & FE-2(DN) maneuver the SSRMS to the overnight park position. NOTE: the OBSS has to be taken out of the payload bay before Columbus can be unberthed.

  • There is no KU from ~01/21:30 to ~02/02:00 because of interference with the robotic arm. (Which arm?)

  • Transfer

  • CTB Xfer: The CSA-O2 needs to be calibrated before E-lk prep. The Portable Gas Delivery System and the CSA Cal Adapter, required for this calibration, are launched in a CTB on the STS mddk.

  • ISS Ground Activities

  • ACBM (Active Common Berthing Mechanism) Inspections: there is a 24 hr thermal clock between petal deploy and CBM-NOD2 COL-1ST STG (FE-2 EXP16 @ 343/2157)

  • NOD2-CBM PREP-MATE: includes petal deploy [required prior to EVA2 egress since the EV crew removes launch locks and opens the CBCS flap to allow the CBCS an exterior view. (exterior Velcro flap)]. Also includes ACBM inspection

  • Flight Day 4 - EVA-1 and Columbus Install

    Big Picture: The EV crew installs the PDGF on the Columbus module. Then SSRMS grapples and removes Columbus from the STS payload bay. The SSRMS will supply power to the Columbus shell heaters until Columbus Berthed Survival Mode Activation is complete on FD05. An overnight fine leak check of the Columbus/Node2 vestibule is started during crew Presleep.

  • Columbus Vestibule Outfitting Prep

  • INSTL PWS: (Portable Workstation (PWS) install in Node 2) The Utility Outlet Panel (UOP) is turned off for the PWS install and then turned on after it is completed. On FD06 this PWS will be deinstalled from the Node and moved into the Columbus module. The reason the PWS is installed in Node 2 is for contingency purposes. The crew can activate the Col module from the PWS if Col-CC is unable to for some reason. Also, the PWS will allow the crew to follow along in the ground activation if they desire.

  • ACS-PPRV SP SEAL-R&R: (PPRV Seal R&R) The PPRV on the Node 2 Starboard Hatch has a cap on the Sample Port. We need to take the cap off and replace the hard seal with a soft seal so that the Internal Sampling Adaptor (ISA) can later be installed on the Node 2 Starboard Hatch for the leak checks. This activity must occur prior to the VAJ setup.

  • PFA S/U: (Portable Fan Assembly Setup) This activity sets up the PFA in Node 2 as preparations for the FD05 vestibule and partial ingress activities. The PFA will circulate the air and help prevent CO2 pockets from forming.

  • VEST OUTFIT PREP: In this activity, the crew gathers and stages tools needed for vestibule outfitting on FD05.

  • Node2/Columbus pressure thermal line Quick Disconnect (QD),

  • Colulmbus Install

  • Centerline Berthing Camera System (CBCS) is powered on early in the crew day. This camera system aids the crew in aligning the Columbus module for installation. CBCS Removal is performed after Columbus install is complete.

  • Active Common Berthing Mechanism (ACBM) verification: Prior to Columbus install the crew verifies the status of the ACBM on the ISS PCS to ensure it is ready to receive the Columbus module.

  • PRLA once the SSRMS has grappled the Columbus module, the CDR releases the PRLAs to allow the SSRMS to unberth the module.

  • VAJ S/U: (Vacuum Access Jumper setup) Sets up equipment for the gross and fine leak checks. There are no constraints on how early this can be scheduled.

  • TCS-NODE2 QD-DISCNCT: (NODE2 QD DISCNCT) Node 2/Columbus passive thermal line QDs must be scheduled within 24 hrs of COL-ITCS JMPR-INSTL (on FD05; 1737 GMT on MS3) per Flight Rule: 1E-XXX-110. The passive line QDs inside Node 2 must be de-mated prior to installing the Columbus water loop jumpers to avoid the physical connection between the Node 2 MTL accumulator and pump and Columbus accumulator and pump while operating, which could cause undesirable transient effects on Node 2 and Columbus TCS items. Note: these QDs never need to be reconnected.

  • After the Columbus module is installed a Node 2/Columbus vestibule gross leak check is performed. It is preferred to do the gross leak check prior to crew sleep to allow for any necessary troubleshooting overnight. However, if required the gross leak check can move to the morning of FD05.

  • ACS-COL LK CK-INIT: (LK CK) initial vestibule pressurization; NOD2CBM BOLT-LOADING must be completed prior to ACS-COL LK CK-INIT start; wait ten minutes for thermal equalization before the next pressure reading

  • ACS-COL LK CK-READ: (READ) reading after thermal equalization; Wait at least 30 min before the gross leak check

  • ACS-COL LK CK-TERM: (LK CK TERM) Final gross leak check reading and complete vestibule pressurization; wait ten minutes before the fine leak check

  • After the gross leak check is complete, a fine leak check is initiated before sleep and runs overnight. The fine leak check is not a requirement for the joint mission, but fits easily in the current timeline. If the gross leak check moves to the morning of FD05, the fine leak check will be delayed to the 1E stage.

  • ACS-FINE LK CK-INIT: (LEAK CHECK-INIT) 5 min for Initial Pressure Reading and ISA Deactivation

  • Crew Rotation

  • FE-1 & FE-2(UP) will remove Tani's IELK from the Soyuz and install Eyharts' IELK in its place. Once this is complete, Tani and Eyharts home vehicles are officially swapped.

  • Other scheduled SOKOL activities have the following constraints:

  • SOKOL-SUIT-DRYING: (SOKL DRY) takes 2hrs to dry

  • SOKOL-GLOVE-DRY: (GLOVE) takes 30 min to dry

  • SOKOL-CLSOUT: (SOKOL CLS) stows the suit; schedule at least 2hrs after SOKOL-SUIT-DRYING & 30 min after SOKOL-GLOVE-DRY. There are two driers, so the SOKOL suit and gloves can dry concurrently.

  • FE-2 (up) is scheduled for time to adapt to space and ISS.

  • CMS OV must be completed before FE-2 (up) completes his first exercise session. This activity familiarizes the crew with the heart rate monitoring system used during exercise.

  • Eyharts' also has RED, CEVIS, and TVIS handovers scheduled on this day. These activities count as crew handover time and are scheduled at the beginning or end of another crew member's exercise on these devices. The intent of these activties if ro Leo to gain familiarity with this equipment.

  • HMS-PMC: daily PMC for new crew; required through FDxx; can be scheduled anytime except during the EVA

  • EECOM/ECLSS Items

  • Two CWC fills and 1 PWR fill are scheduled for this day. Each CWC fill is 1 hour in duration, and a CWC bag transfer is scheduled after the term of each fill. The PWR fill is 30 minutes and is also followed by the bag transfer.

  • An N2 repress is scheduled for this day and is 2 hours long.

  • ACS-O2 LK CK-INIT: (O2 LK) A Node 2 ISS Oxygen system fine leak check initiation is a fine leak check required after the O2 purge (completed on FD03). This leak check is independent of the Columbus/Node2 leak checks. Leak check duration is at least 10 hours.

  • EVA

  • EVA1 Overview - At the start of the EVA, the EV crew sets-up for installing the PDGF by translating to the payload bay, disconnecting the LTA heater cables from the Columbus module (starts the thermal clock), removes the Common Berthing Mechanism (CBM) seal covers, and releasing the PDGF from the sidewall carrier. The crew then installs the PDGF on the Columbus module in preparation for the grapple by the SSRMS. Once the crew has completed the PDGF install, they translate up to P1 and begin the prep work to remove the NTA.

  • As a result of clearance issues and successfully removing Columbus Module out of the payload bay, the KU dish is stowed prior to the start of EVA1. The KU dish is then deployed on FD05 after the SSRMS releases the Columbus Module.

  • PLT is the IV crew member for EVA1.

  • EVA crew members are MS2 (EV1 - free floater for this EVA) Walheim and MS3 (EV2 - on SSRMS for PDGF setup and install) Schlegel.

  • CDR performs P/TV07 for EVA 1 viewing. CDR, ISS CDR, and FE-2 (dn) assist with Suit-up IV activities.

  • Power Data Grapple Fixture (PDGF) Overview - The PDGF provides a structural fixture for the SSRMS to grapple the Columbus Module and move it from the payload bay to the installed position on the ISS Node 2. The PDGF additionally enables the Columbus Module to receive power via the SSRMS. The Columbus module has a 24 hour thermal clock which begins once the LTA heater cables are removed at the beginning of EVA1. The thermal clock is terminated once the SSRMS is providing heater power to the Columbus module. The PDGF is being installed on orbit due to clearance issues with the grapple fixture installed and the OBSS

  • PDGF Setup -In this activity the EV1 translates to the payload bay. On his way to the plb from the ISS Airlock, he translates past the Node 2 stbd port. While in the area, EV1 opens the CBM flap and visually inspcts the sealing surface where the Columbus module will soon be mated. Once in the payload bay, EV1 disconnects the LTA heater cable which has been providing power to the Columbus shell heaters from the STS. When the LTA cables are disconnected, the 24 hour thermal clock begins for Columbus. EV1 also uses this time to remove the upper Meteroids & Debris Protective Shield (MDPS) to help gain access to the area that the PDGF will later be installed. While in the vacinity, EV1 also removes the CBM cover from the Columbus module and inspects the sealing surface for FOD. While EV1 is performing these activities, EV2 is setting up and ingressing an APFR and is then maneuvered down to the payload bay by the SSRMS operators. EV2 then removes the PDGF from the sidewall carrier and the SSRMS operators maneuver him over to the PDGF intall position.

  • PDGF Install - EV1 and EV2 install the PDGF in its location and bolt it down. Then EV1 and EV2 to remove the lower MDPS to clear the space for the PDGF harness to be installed. Once the harness is installed, the upper and lower MDPSs are re-installed. The EV crew then cleans up the payload bay and prepares for the P1 NTA Removal Prep activity.

  • P1 Nitrogen Tank Assembly (NTA) Removal Prep - During this activity the EV crew preps the NTA for removal which occurs on EVA2. The NTA's electrical lines and N2 lines are disconnected and the NTA bolts are loosened.

  • P/TV-EVA IMAGE-D/L: (D/L EVA IMAGE DOWNLINK) FE-2 (dn) will put the card from the EVA camera in an ISS SSC for dowlink via ISS OCA.

  • Maneuvers/Attitude Info

  • A maneuver update is scheduled after the Columbus module is installed. This maneuver update adjusts Universal Pointing match the modified TEA.

  • PGSC

  • The STS Ku dish will be stowed prior to EVA egress. It will remain stowed for ~24 hours until the SSRMS ungrapples Columbus on FD05. Impact: the FD05 STS Execute Package (as well as any other STS message traffic during Ku stow) will be uplinked via ISS assets.

  • XFER PCMCIA-SSC: Prior to Ku stow, MS4 has an activity to install a PCMCIA card into an ISS SSC. This will set up the config for the Sneakernet procedure.

  • PGSC POWERDOWN: Just after Ku stow, MS4 will powerdown unnecessary PGSCs.

  • LCC ACT & LCC DEACT: During EVA 1, APCU's are deactivated then later activated (during PDGF Setup). This removes critical keep-alive power to LCH (Laser Camera Head) and IDC. After LCC is activated/deactivated on FD4 evening, the LCH will be in keep-alive heater mode.

  • Robotics Activities

  • The SSRMS is used to support EV2 with PDGF Setup and Install. Prior to EVA1, the SSRMS is in the overnight park position. For the PDGF install, the SSRMS maneuvers to the Articulating Portable Foot Restraint (APFR) pre-install/ingress position. At the beginning of PDGF setup, EV2 ingresses the APFR. At the end of PDGF install, EV2 egresses the APFR. The SSRMS grapples Columbus and unberths it from the payload bay. Columbus is then maneuverd to the install position on the starboard port of Node 2. The capture phase of CBM mating is performed in 2 stages: First stage capture drives the ACBM latches across the gap between the 2 elements to “grab” the Columbus PCBM. During second stage capture, the capture latches pull Columbus allowing bolting operations to begin.

  • MS1 & MS4 are the M1 and M2 SSRMS crewmembers. FE-2 down supports as M3.

  • Exercise Constraint

  • There is no exercise during Columbus unberth thru A-bolts.

  • Transfer

  • Transfer time is scheduled on crew members not busy with the day's EVA activities. Crewmember involved with transfer ops are scheduled for a 15 minute transfer tagup, then MS1 (loadmaster) will call MCC to perform a transfer brief with the ground.

  • Payloads

  • MUS-1E-QUESTION & MOP-1E-QUESTION:(MUS and MOP)These are ESA payload questionaires. They are low priority, and can be deleted if necessary. Scheduled on MS3 and FE-2 (up).

  • Sleep Log: MS1 and MS4 perform sleep log upon wakeup. This log is is participation in the sleep short SBDI. MS2 and MS3 do not perform a sleep log on this day because they are EVA crew members.

  • CDM: A battery changeout and device relocation occurrs prior to presleep and the CDM is activated prior to sleep.

  • ISS Ground Activities

  • ETCS-LPB TRRJ-LOCK: required since the EV crew will be working close to the TRRJ

  • ETCS-NTA-VENT: (NTA Initial Venting) initial venting of the NTA. Could cause a LOAC, so ISS hands over attitude control to the Shuttle prior to the venting. Attitude control is handed back shortly after the venting is complete. Schedule PPS-BGA-FTHR 45 minutes prior to ACS-CMG/STS ATT-H/O and PPS-BGAAUTOTRACK 30 minutes after ACS-STS/CMG ATT-H/O.

  • ETCS-NTA-FINAL PREP: (NTA Final Venting) final NTA venting after the crew has disconnected the QDs and before removing the electrical connections.

  • NOD2-CBM BOLT-LOADING: (CBM Bolt Loading) ground activity; start after ACQ BOLTS completed

  • Flight Day 5 - Columbus Activation & Focused Inspection

    Big Picture: The crew will terminate the overnight leak checks; then start the vestibule outfitting. Eyharts will partially ingress Columbus to install the IMV ducts and valves (supply side first, then return side). Columbus will be unpowered and dark at this point and is a concern for floating debris (paint chips, dust ...), so Eyharts will be wearing a mask and goggles. The first goal is to get Columbus to ‘Berth Survival Mode'; basically this means the shell heaters are on and module won't die. Columbus has a 24 hour thermal clock that starts on this day once the SSRMS power latches are disconnected. This activity is performed by the ground around crew wake. After ‘Berth Survival Mode'; COL-CC will start the final activation; including CFA (Common Fan Assembly) activation. FD05 also contains the place holder tasks for STS Focused Inspection. Before focused inspection can be performed the SSRMS must ungrapple the Columbus module. Once that has occurred, the STS Ku dish is scheduled to be re-deployed and activated. In addition to the focused inspection and Columbus activation activies going on this day, the crew is also preparing for EVA 2 and completes a good bit of transfer.

  • Columbus Items

  • ACS-COL LKCK-TEARDWN: (LK CK T/D) Final Pressure Reading and ISA Teardown. Must be completed before CBM-DISK COVER-RMV can start. Schedule Peggy for this activity.

  • The CBM-DISK COVER-RMV (DSK CVR RMV & STRAP) must be performed before beginning the vestibule connections to Columbus. The crew can start this as soon as ACS-COL LKCK-TEARDWN is complete. It's scheduled for Peggy and Hans Schlegel (MS3) and not Peggy and Leo (Exp16 FE-2) because it would break Leo's day. The disk cover remove is scheduled as early as Shuttle rules allow. Leo is required for the afternoon activities and does not have the crew time for this activity.

  • PARTL INGRS: FE-2 (up) partially ingresses the Columbus Module in order to R&R the Negative Pressure Relief Valve (NPRV) with the supply IMV as well as R&R the Negative Pressure Relief Valve (NPRV) with the Return IMV. Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is required during the partial ingress to Columbus. This activity should be scheduled as soon as CBM Disk Cover Remove is completed.

  • The crew's portion of the berth survival mode activities include: power jumper install, hardwired instrumentation jumpers install, and 1553 data jumper install. After these activities are completed, Col-CC is able perform a few actviation commands and when those are complete, the Columbus Module is considered to be activated to berth survival mode. The thermal clock is stopped and the module is safe.

  • The crew's portion of the final activation activities include: IMV supply & return duct and valve install, TCS jumper install, Condensate water jumper install, Fiber optic jumper install, and AR sample jumper install. In addition to the crew activities performed for final activation there is quite a bit of Col-CC ground commanding required. The best way to follow and understand the ground/crew interactions on this day is to review the Activation Flow Chart in the Assembly Ops book.

  • COL-NPRV SPLY-R&R: (NPRV IMV SPLY VLV) replacing a NPRV with a IVM Supply Shut-off valve (ISSOV)

  • COL-SPLY DCT-INSTL: (IMV SPLY DCT) forward CPA must be removed first; supplies air to Columbus

  • ITCS JUMPER: (Columbus Vestibule Outfitting; Step 9): (COL-ITCS JMPR-INST) Needs to be completed prior to the ground executing Steps 2&3 of COL-FINAL-ACTIVATION; cannot be started until the first set of CPAs are removed (forward and aft). (scheduled on MS3)

  • COL-CONDNST JMPR-INS: (COND JMPR) required to complete Columbus final activation. Nominally the condensate jumper is installed before starting the CFA. That way if any condensate is separated it can be sucked out to the USOS (I think the Columbus has only a very small condensate tank).

  • COL-FIBER JMPR-INSTL: (FIBER) required to complete Columbus final activation

  • COL-AR SMPL JMPR-INS (Air Sampling Jumper): (ARS) not required to complete Columbus final activation

  • MS2/EV1 and MS3/EV2 perform campout procedures for EVA2 at the end of FD05. The EVA crewmembers will initiate repress on the morning of FD06 when 8 hours, 40 minutes at 10.2 psi has elapsed.

  • All crew members participate in an EVA2 procedure review prior to presleep.

  • Focused Inspection

  • A 4.75 hour focused inspection is timelined on FD05. If a longer focused inspection is required, an extra day may be added to the mission, and focused inspection would take place on FD06.

  • Focused inspection may or may not be a requirement based on imagery results from FD02 inspection and RPM photos from FD03. The sensors used are based on inspection areas targeted for focused inspection and the type of images needed. LCS is considered highest priority for focused inspection. TDRS Z in not used for focused inspection.

  • A focused inspection DOUG review is scheduled on robotic crew members.

  • If focused inspection is not required, the time will most likely be filled with transfer.

  • KU

  • The KU dish is deployed and activated (after being stowed prior to EVA1 on FD04) after the SSRMS releases the Columbus Module.

  • MS4 is scheduled to re-power any of the PGSCs that might have been powered down while Ku was stowed.

  • PAO Events

  • P/TV05 is scheduled prior to the mission's first PAO event. Since STS KU is stowed, the PAO event will use ISS KU. P/TV05 will setup for the US PAO event.

  • P/TV05 is then scheduled again later in the day, prior to the second PAO event.

  • SSRMS Activities

  • COL-REL PRE-EVA MNVR: (SSRMS UNGRP COL-MNVR & SSRMS FI MNVR) MS1, MS4, and FE-2 (dn) ungrapple the Columbus Module with the SSRMS and maneuver the arm to either the focused inspection viewing position or an EVA2 position depending on the mission scenario.

  • Payloads

  • DCB-1E-UNPACK: (DCB UNPACK) Unpacks and transfers the WAICO samples to MELFI. Schedule this NLT FD05; preferred early in FD05. The samples may thaw if not transferred by FD05. Schedule immediately after a transfer block (insures the DCB gets transferred to the station)

  • CDM: The CDM will be powered off immediately after wakeup, with the battery changeout and device relocation occurring later in the day.

  • Sleep Log: MS1, MS2 and MS4 all perform sleep log upon wakeup. MS1, MS2, and MS4 perform the log as participation in the sleep short SBDI. MS2's log also counts towards his participation in the PMZ SBDI. MS3 does not perform the sleep log on this day as he is at the min PSA requirements for EVA prep and Columbus activation activities.

  • Saliva: MS4 performs his first liquid saliva sample for the integrated immune SBDI.

  • MUS: MS4 performs the ESA payload questionairre, MUS, prior to presleep.

  • ISS Ground Commanding

  • COL-FINAL-ACTIVATION: skips the PWS Activation step (2 PWS, 1 PCS & 1 SSC laptops are setup Columbus on FD06); starts after COL-ITCS JMPR-INSTL. The following activities are part of the final activation and are called out seperately in OSTP just for team cognizance.

  • WPA-ACT: Columbus Water Pump Assembly activation

  • DMS-ACT: Data Management System (DMS) Activation

  • COL-IMV-ACT: Cabin Fan Assembly activation. The crew is required to have masks and goggles on until the CFA has sufficiently cycled the air within the module (across the filters). The BMEs and ECLSS have said that for this module that equates to about 40 minutes of CFA run time. So for that huge ESA PAO event, that Navias has said must be without masks and goggles if inside COLUMBUS, then the CFA must be on at least 40 minutes beforehand. Note: there is no requirement for any IMV ducting to be installed or for the NPRV valves to be replaced before CFA Act. The CFA just circulates air within the module and doesn't require IMV or even the hatch to be open.

  • C&T-HK2 TELEM-CNFG: CATO increases the HK2 packet throttle rate to COLCC up to 8 packets/sec; this is in support of Columbus activation. This is not a telemetry packet swap.

  • Flight Day 6 - EVA-2

    Big Picture: Continued Columbus outfitting, EPM relocate, and EVA2. This is the first day where COL-CC and MCC-H will be working in parallel on different activities: MCC-H will be working the EVA and COL-CC will be following the station crew working in Columbus.

  • Columbus Items

  • Four laptops are set up in Columbus: one SSC, two PWS (PCS equivilant for Columbus systems) and one PCS. Prior to installing the PWS in the Columbus module, it must first be deinstalled from its location in Node 2. A second SSC will be setup during the stage.

  • COMMS-VCA-INSTALL: (INSTL VCA2) Sets up the Columbus camera assembly. Once this is complete COL-CC has many ground activities to check out the system. After that's all done; Col-CC can receive video from Columbus (views are similar to the lab camcorder shots). My understanding is that this video does not come down via one of the 4 video channels but comes down as a data stream and is reconstructed on the ground as video.

  • COL-A3F1 KBAR CM-INS: (A3 F1 KBAR INSTL) Installs the Kbar capture mechanism in the A3 and F1 rack bay locations. The Kbar must be installed in A3 before relocating EPM and installed in F1 before relocating EDR. (Note: on FD08, a Kbar will be installed in A2 before the BLB is relocated)

  • PL-EPM-RLCT: (RELOCATE EPM - A3) first rack to be relocated from COL O3 to COL A3; requires 2 people.

  • COL-D1 FLOOR PNL-INS: (INSTL D1 FLOOR PANEL) replacing the D1 panel after the AVMs are unlocked

  • Sleep Cycle

  • The crew is going to bed 1 hour early, so the day is shortened by 1 hour. There will be a second 1 hour shift like this after EVA3. These shifts are to support Shuttle ascending landing opportunities. Note: The SCSC states the crew should sleep shift prior to critical days; that's why the sleep shifts are scheduled post EVA2 & EVA3.

  • Crew Rotation

  • H/O: 35 minutes of face-to-face handover is scheduled between FE-2 (dn) and FE-2 (up)

  • EECOM/ECLSS Items

  • Columbus Items

  • EPM-UMB-MATE: (EPM UMB MATE) connects the EPM to Columbus; all umbilcals located on the rack front. Note COL-CC ground activites EPS-EPM PDU OUTL-INH and TCS-EPM WFSV-CL must be completed first. Prefer to have the EPM umbilicals mated jprior to EVA3 since the external payloads receive power through this rack bay. If the umbilicals are mated after the payloads are installed, additional P/L powerdowns are required while the crew mates the EPM umbilicals. PDU enable and WFSV open are included in the rack power up procedure and not called out seperately (EPM power up on FD09)

  • COL-BANISTERS-INSTL: (INSTL BNSTR) The Banisters are Columbus specific Crew Mobility Aids. Crew install them in crew preference locations to support mobility inside Columbus during operations.
