Progress MS-10 (Russian: Прогресс МC-10), identified by NASA as Progress 71P, is a Progress spacecraft used by Roscosmos to resupply the International Space Station (ISS). This is the 162nd flight of a Progress spacecraft.
- New external compartment that enables it to deploy satellites. Each compartment can hold up to four launch containers. First time installed on Progress MS-03.
- Enhanced redundancy thanks to the addition of a backup system of electrical motors for the docking and sealing mechanism.
- Improved Micrometeoroid (MMOD) protection with additional panels in the cargo compartment.
- Luch Russian relay satellites link capabilities enable telemetry and control even when not in direct view of ground radio stations.
- GNSS autonomous navigation enables real time determination of the status vector and orbital parameters dispensing with the need of ground station orbit determination.
- Real time relative navigation thanks to direct radio data exchange capabilities with the space station.
- New digital radio that enables enhanced TV camera view for the docking operations.
- The Ukrainian Chezara Kvant-V on board radio system and antenna/feeder system has been replaced with a Unified Command Telemetry System (UCTS).
- Replacement of the Kurs A with Kurs NA digital system.
In 2014, the launch was expected on 22 February 2018. In 2017, the mission had slipped to August 2018. In June 2018, the launch was scheduled for 31 October 2018, but in the wake of the Soyuz MS-10 accident it had to be postponed on 16 November 2018.
- Dry cargo: 1,330 kg
- Fuel: 750 kg
- Oxygen: 75 kg
- Water: 440 kg
