Progress M-45, identified by NASA as Progress 5 or 5P, was a Progress spacecraft used to resupply the International Space Station. It was a Progress-M 11F615A55 spacecraft, with the serial number 245.[1]

Progress M-45 was launched by a Soyuz-U carrier rocket from Site 1/5 at the Baikonur Cosmodrome. Launch occurred at 09:23:54 GMT on 21 August 2001.[1] The spacecraft docked with the Aft port of the Zvezda module at 09:51:32 GMT on 23 August.[2][3] It remained docked for three months before undocking at 16:12:01 GMT on 22 November[2] to make way for Progress M1-7.[4] It left debris on the docking port which prevented Progress M1-7 from achieving a hard dock until it was removed during an EVA on 3 December. Progress M-45 was deorbited at 20:48:00 GMT on the same day that it undocked.[2] The spacecraft burned up in the atmosphere over the Pacific Ocean, with any remaining debris landing in the ocean at around 21:35:23 GMT.[2][5]

Progress M-45 carried supplies to the International Space Station, including food, water and oxygen for the crew and equipment for conducting scientific research.
