This document provides the assignment of flight dates, resources and accommodations, as well as defines the requirements for Increment 16 in Planning Period 7. Requirements are provided for both joint International Space Station (ISS)/mated vehicle operations and ISS-only continuous operations stages of the increment.
The schedule for products (i.e., documentation, reviews, etc.) that must be developed to support Increment 16 is found in the Common Schedule Database (CSD). The requirements contained herein shall be used in the execution of the flight and stage Certification of Flight Readiness (CoFR) processes carried out by each ISS supporting organization.
This document covers Increment 16, beginning with the launch of the E16 Commander (CDR) and Flight Engineer-1 (FE-1) on Flight 15 Soyuz and ends with their departure on Flight 15 Soyuz.
