ISS-4R delivers Docking Compartment 1 (DC-1 - also known as "Pier") and the Strela Boom to the International Space Station aboard an unmanned Soyuz rocket. The launch configuration is a modified Progress spacecraft (Progress M-CO1) which consists of the Docking Compartment attached to a Cargo Vehicle Module (CVM). Progress M-CO1 will dock with the forward Nadir (Earth-facing) docking port of the Service Module ("Zvezda "). Once the Cargo Vehicle Module stage has detached, Docking Compartment 1 will provide an additional egress and ingress location for Russian segment-based space walks as well as an additional Soyuz and Progress docking port.
