During the next several months, Orbital’s engineering team will integrate the PCM with the Cygnus service module that includes the spacecraft’s avionics, propulsion and power systems.
The Cygnus spacecraft is scheduled for a demonstration flight early next year on an Orbital Taurus II launch vehicle under NASA’s Commercial Orbital Transportation Services agreement with the company. Cygnus will launch from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport’s pad 0A at Wallops. For information about the spacecraft, visit:
