1.1 PURPOSE

This document provides the assignment of flight dates, resources and accommodations, as well as defines the requirements for Increment 17 in Planning Period 8. 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 17 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.

1.2 SCOPE

This document covers Increment 17, beginning with the launch of the Expedition (E)17 Commander (CDR) and Flight Engineer (FE)-1 on Flight 16 Soyuz and ends with their departure on Flight 16 Soyuz. The third crew member, FE-2, rotates on the Shuttle flights. At the start of Increment 17, the E16/17 FE-2 (1J/A) will have been on ISS since Flight 1J/A in Increment 16. E17 FE-2 (1J) is launched on Flight 1J and replaces E16/17 FE-2 (1J/A). E17 FE-2 (1J) returns on Flight Utilization Logistics Flight (ULF)2. The E17/18 FE-2 (ULF2) is launched on Flight ULF2 and replaces E17 FE-2 (1J). E17/18 FE-2 (ULF2) returns during Increment 18. Note that the Flight that returns E17/18 FE-2 (ULF2) has requirements, including those for crew rotation, specified in Space Station Program (SSP) 540XX .

This document is based on the ISS Flight Program definition, as specified in SSP 54100, Increment Definition and Requirements Document Flight Program. This document defines the capabilities and objectives of Increment 17. This document also controls the following: resource and accommodation allocations between assembly, system, and utilization; requirements and priorities for ISS execution planning; ISS manifest [Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 17, Annex (ANX) 1: Station Manifest (SSP 54017-16S , SSP 54017-1J , SSP 54017-29P , SSP 54016-ATV1 , SSP 54017-30P , SSP 54017-31P , SSP 54017-ULF2 )]; On-Orbit Maintenance Plan (SSP 54017-ANX 2 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 17, Annex 2: On-Orbit Maintenance Plan); ISS imagery requirements (SSP 54017-ANX 3 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 17, Annex 3: Imagery Requirements); medical operations (SSP 54017-ANX 4 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 17, Annex 4: Medical Operations and Environmental Monitoring); and payloads (SSP 54017-ANX 5 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 17, Annex 5: Payload Tactical Plan). The above mentioned documents are published as separate documents.
