From the 23rd of June until the 27th of June, the second technical German/Russian ICARUS meeting took place at Lake Constance. In collaboration with the Russian colleagues from RKK-Energia and IG RAS Moscow, as well as Space Tech Immenstaad and the DLR (German Aerospace Center) the technical and scientific parameter were redefined, because of the amended implementation of the ICARUS Hardware on the Russian Service Module of the ISS(International Space Station). The documents were ratified. As a result of the necessary redesign, the launch date was changed to spring 2016. At the same time the first ICARUS tag prototype will be tested by the ICARUS system on the ISS from an altitude of 430-470km above the earth surface.
