A lot of work ahead for ISS crew members in 2015

Hardware Movement and Reconfiguration to Highlight Space Station Operations in 2015.

The reconfiguration includes:

  • The first of two International Docking Adapters (IDAs) to support CCtCAP capsules (Boeing’s CST-100 and SpaceX’s Dragon V2) (June)
  • Components of the Common Communications for Visiting Vehicles (C2V2) architecture
  • Moving the Leonardo Permanent Multipurpose Module (PMM) (er…doesn’t that mean it’s not really “permanent”?) from the Unity node to the forward port of Tranquility node (July)
  • Bigelow Aerospace’s BEAM mated to the Tranquility node directly opposite the relocated Leonardo module (September)
  • Moving the Pressurized Mating Adapter (PMA)-3 from the port side of the Tranquility node to the space-facing port of the Harmony node (October)
  • Installing IDS-2 onto PMA-3 (December)

Here’s the current ISS configuration for reference:
