Feb 8, 2019: The Cygnus unmanned cargo vehicle has successfully completed its tenth mission to the International Space Station (ISS). The mission, called NG-10, was conducted for NASA under the Commercial Resupply Services (CRS) contract. Odyssey engineers supported from the Johnson Space Center Mission Control Complex as it was released and departed from ISS on February 8th, with release occurring at 16:16 UTC. After conducting some non-resupply-related operations, re-entry occurred on February 25th at 09:05 UTC.
Odyssey’s role in Cygnus development was extensive, including Systems Engineering design support, Concept of Operations development, Robotic Capture design and analysis, and Independent Verification and Validation of all safety critical software. Congratulations to the entire Cygnus and NASA team!
