1.1 PURPOSE

This document provides the assignment of flight dates, resources and accommodations, as well as defines the requirements for Increment 18 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 18 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 18, beginning with the launch of the Expedition (E)18 Commander (CDR) and Flight Engineer-1 (FE-1) on Flight 17 Soyuz and ends with their departure on Flight 17 Soyuz.

The E18 FE-2 (ULF2) is launched on Flight ULF2 and replaces the previous E17/18 FE-2 (1J). E18 FE-2 (ULF2) returns on Flight 15A during Increment 18. E18 FE-2 (15A) launches on 15A and replaces E18 FE-2 (ULF2). E18/19 FE-2 (2J/A) launches on Flight 2J/A, replaces the E18 FE-2 (15A) and returns in the strategic timeframe. Note that the Flight that returns the crew has requirements, including those for crew rotation specified in SSP 54018.

This document is based on the ISS Flight Program Definition, as specified in SSP 54100, IDRD Flight Program.

This document defines the capabilities and objectives of Increment 18. 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 (IDRD) for Increment 18, Annex 1: Station Manifest (SSP 54018-17S , SSP 54018-15A , SSP 54018-32P , SSP 54018-33P , SSP 54018-2J/A ); On-Orbit Maintenance Plan (SSP 54018-ANX 2 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 18, Annex 2: On-Orbit Maintenance Plan); ISS imagery requirements (SSP 54018-ANX 3 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 18, Annex 3: Imagery Requirements); medical operations (SSP 54018-ANX 4 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 18, Annex 4: Medical Operations and Environmental Monitoring); and payloads (SSP 54018-ANX 5 , Increment Definition and Requirements Document for Increment 18, Annex 5: Payload Tactical Plan). The above mentioned documents are published as separate documents
