Roscosmos, DLR, RSCE, MPIO, I-GOS and STI have held a successful meeting on February 16th to conduct the first part of the acceptance test of the qualification model of ICARUS (QM AT 1) and coordinate the future milestones of the project.
Due to the failue of the December Progress Launch, there is a complicated situation with respect to the resources on the ISS. This situation has caused a delay for the ICARUS launch. Instead of the June 15th date, we expect the confirmation of the ICARUS launch date now for October 12th, 2017.
