LIVE Coverage: JAXA HTV Resupply Mission To The ISS

published on July 2, 2020

HDV minutes meant nine minute ascent

into orbit and from there has been

completing his milestones right on track

back to the live view of HTV now over

India the International Space Station

259 statute miles HTV making its

approach again crossing the 200 meter

keep out sphere now 235 meters from the

International Space Station and closing

at a rate of about 01 6 meters per

second

HTV 9 is the final flight of this model

of HTV HTV will then be upgraded to

what's known as the HTV X with full

docking capabilities HTV 9 will be

birthed to space station and captured by

the station's robotic arm the next

generation of HTV spacecraft will have

the ability to dock there's some

hardware on HTV that will be tested for

those future upgrades including a Wi-Fi

communication system that's being tested

on this flight called wild while we'll

be testing Wi-Fi data transmission

through some of the external wireless

ports on the outside of the

International Space Station it'll be

used to transmit future to the future

HTV X vehicle

HTV 118 meters and closing monitoring

from the inside of the International

Space Station is expedition 62 commander

Chris Cassidy he's working side by side

with Yvonne Vagner from Ross cosmos

monitoring the HTV approach

it'll be Cassidy at the controls of the

space stations robotic arm once HTV

arrives at its capture point just about

10 or 12 meters away from the

International Space Station it'll be him

at the controls of the station's robotic

arm to move in and capture the vehicle

after Cassidy uses this maneuver to

capture HTV he'll hand over the controls

of the station's canadarm2 to robotics

controllers here on the ground

they'll take control of the station's

robotic arm and new ver HTV into its

birthing position on the nadir port or

the earth-facing side of node to the

harmony module this is the view that

Cassidy and vogner are watching as we

speak this view provides telemetry and

now that HTV is inside the keep out

spear Cassidy and vogner have the

ability to issue an abort of HTV his

approach if communications with the

international space station has been

lost with the International Space

Station flight control room

International Space Station of flight

control teams working in tandem with HTV

flight control teams over in scuba Japan

from here in Mission Control Houston in

the white flight control room teams are

led by flight director Marcos Flores

he's sitting next to Capcom Leslie Ringo

it'll be her voice that you hear from

Mission Control Houston

up to the crew aboard the International

Space Station Jessica doy is the

visiting vehicle officer here in Mission

Control Houston working in tandem with

HTV flight control over in scuba Japan

joint operations between HTV flight

control teams and International Space

Station flight control teams tracking H

TVs flights right on track for a capture

at 7:15 am Central time 8:15 am

Eastern

Houston station with a block Bravo

coming through 100 meters the light is

within the core of the vehicle matches

the outline in both monitors the light

is in the circle and the circle is

offset from the corridor Center about

the quarter of all vehicle lengths shaft

and 1/3 of a vehicle which to the story

and that matches both monitor one and

modern or three copy for both monitors

and that is what we are expecting good

words

International Space Station commander

Chris Cassidy reporting good telemetry

from HTV as it crosses the 100 meter

point now just 90 meters away from

station making its approach at about 01

m/s leslie ringo the Capcom here in

Mission Control Houston confirming a

good readout H TV's right on track for a

capture 7:15 am Central time HTV and

the International Space Station flying

261 statute miles over the northern

border of China

look at the inside of the International

Space Station flight control room we're

in the white flight control room today

still handing over the flight control

rooms here in Mission Control Houston

between the shifts of International

Space Station flight control teams as we

make our way continuing Space Station

operations through the Cova 19 pandemic

we're in a short handover of the

communications from the International

Space Station losing audio in a video

but should be regaining very shortly

this is pretty standard as the

International Space Station and HTV fly

around the earth at 17,500 miles per

hour handing off from some of the

geostationary satellites that provide

communication both video and audio from

the International Space Station these

TDRs satellites in geosynchronous orbit

to about 23,000 miles away from the

International Space Station regaining

some high-definition video and audio

from the International Space Station HTV

still making a good approach towards the

International Space Station heading

towards a 30-meter hold point crossing

80 meters at this point still holding at

a good rate of 01 meters per second

Space Station and HTV now over the

southern border of Mongolia

this is Mission Control Houston you're

looking at the telemetry that Chris

Cassidy aboard the International Space

Station and Yvonne vogner are watching

as they monitor h tv's approach

everything's still on track you can see

on the right side towards the bottom

there's a column they're called VV to

ISS look at the navigation line that's a

bit the approximate distance in meters

of HTV from the International Space

Station 63 meters and closing

nearly 5,000 pounds of pressurized cargo

fresh food supplies and science hardware

inside HTV about 3000 pounds of cargo is

in the unpressurized section of HTV

that's towards if you're looking at the

structure of the HTV vehicle towards the

middle there inside is the HTV external

pallet that pallet is loaded with six

lithium ion batteries and associated

adapter plates that will be used to

complete the battery upgrades aboard the

International Space Station on the

starboard 6 truss

there's eight power channels associated

with each of the four trusses s4 s6 p4

and p6 that contain the integrated

electronics assembly for batteries to be

mounted and store power that's collected

from the station's solar arrays of the

eight power channels on the

International Space Station six have

been upgraded completely with new

lithium-ion batteries HTV nine

delivering the final set of lithium-ion

batteries

HTV loaded with spare water and nitrogen

all to resupply the consumables aboard

the International Space Station also

some research onboard one in particular

is an experiment called round-robin

round-robin as part of the Jax's elf or

electronic electro levitation furnace

this experiment is will be mounted

inside the International Space Station

with the ability to levitate different

materials for testing in different

thermal environments many of the

materials being carried up by HTV are to

be are to help with future space

exploration some of the materials that

are inside HTV now will be used to test

some materials that can be used for

turbine blade materials spacecraft

external shells and a glass forming

alloy HTV is still making a good

approach towards the International Space

Station 47 meters and closing the views

you'll see from the International Space

Station towards HTV are about to get

just a little bit darker as we cross

over the Terminator line into an orbital

nighttime Space Station and HTV 263

statute miles about to cross over the

terminal at nadir line into orbital

darkness just off the eastern coast of

Siberia

since stationed with a block Bravo

coming through 43 meters everything

seems to be converging nicely the light

is within the quarter the vehicle size

matches the outline the light is in the

circle in this circle is only slightly

starboard and slightly aft of the

crosshairs and good reporter in both

monitor one and three great words

this is Mission Control Houston

you're starting to see the earth get a

little bit darker behind HTV as we cross

into an orbital nighttime HTV now just a

little bit just about 35 meters from the

International Space Station we're

heading right on track towards that 30

meter hold point that's about a hundred

feet from the International Space

Station

the space station and HTV make a

complete orbit around the earth every 90

minutes at about that 30 meter hold

point will continue to hold at that

point through the duration of orbital

nighttime departing just before sunrise

allowing HTV to arrive in its capture

point about ten or twelve or so meters

away from the International Space

Station during an orbital daytime

HD

as we arrive towards that 30 meter whole

point now awaiting confirmation of a

good hold

station Houston and to confirmed the

30-meter hold and then set up and brief

for the capture per step eight in one

decimal 1-0 to Houston step eights and

work

this is Mission Control Houston from the

ground here in the International Space

Station flight control room confirming a

good 30 meter hold HTV will remain in

this position through the orbital

nighttime so for just about 40 or 45

minutes

you're getting a view from the

workstation that astronaut Chris Cassidy

and Roscosmos cosmonaut Yvonne Wagner

are taking a look at why's they

monitored the approach of HTV towards

the International Space Station seeing

those final glimpses of sunlight as HTV

and International Space Station crossed

completely into darkness 263 statute

miles over the North Pacific Ocean

mr control Houston you're seeing the

cameras on the outside of the

International Space Station

reconfiguring and the bottom of the

screen there you see the Kent station's

canadarm2 poised ready to capture the

HTV as it departs the 30 meter hold

point and heads towards that capture

position about 10 or 12 meters away HTV

still holding at the 30 meter mark it'll

be a go/no-go Pole from the team lead

here in Mission Control Houston working

with international flight control teams

including HTV flight control in Scooba

Japan making sure everything is good for

that final maneuver of HTV towards its

capture position HTV arrival comes at

the perfect time arriving with critical

consumable supplies spare batteries to

upgrade the outside of the International

Space Station and of course many

research experiments ahead of a new crew

launching to the International Space

Station from the firt from American

shores for the first time in nine years

Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley will be

launching on top of the SpaceX dragon

crew dragon vehicle from the Kennedy

Space Center in Florida on the demo2

mission this will come just two days

from now may 27th 2020 you are set to

liftoff from the Kennedy Space Center at

4:30 3 pm Central time will be live

for the pre-launch comp reel on coverage

for about four hours even a little bit

before that four and a half hours before

launch make sure you tune in to our live

coverage on NASA TV in tandem with

SpaceX to cover the mission everything

that's led up to this point to launch

crew once again from the United States

that's made 27 20 24 33 pm Eastern

Time 333 pm Central Time everything's

still on track from the HTV side of

things again we're continuing to hold 30

meters just about a hundred feet from

the International Space Station

everything's right on track for the

scheduled capture time just about an

hour from now 7:15 am Central time

8:15 am Eastern

just tuning in the HTV cargo vehicle HTV

9 holding at 30 meters away from the

International Space Station in just a

few minutes led from here in Mission

Control Houston by flight director

Marcos Flores flight control teams from

around the globe will conduct a go/no-go

poll to depart at the 30 meter whole

point departure of that 30 meter hold

scheduled just about 20 minutes from now

again all the flight control teams will

verify that everything is go and all

everything has been checked out to make

sure that HTV can safely depart the 30

meter hold point and head towards the

capture position the crew was ready for

HTV approach to the capture point and we

copy you heard good words from the

International Space Station that was a

NASA astronaut Chris Cassidy Space

Station commander of expedition 62 and

the lead for HTV is rendezvous at the

controls of the station's robotic

robotic arm confirming the station crews

ready for HTV to depart that 30 meter

whole point head towards the capture

position it'll be Cassidy himself at the

controls of the station's robotic arm

he'll be maneuvering the robotic arm

heading in to capture the HTV vehicle

coming in at a total of about 12 tons

you

we have good confirmation from the

International Space Station crew to

depart 30-meter hold points still

conducting that go no-go poll from here

in Mission Control Houston the next

milestone you're here is the Capcom here

in Mission Control Houston leslie ringo

read out to the crew of a good note go

no-go for that 30 meter depart scheduled

just about 20 minutes from now

this is Mission Control Houston HTV

still holding at 30 meters inside about

four tons total of cargo including the

pressurized section containing a water

supply water resupply tanks in research

experiments and nitrogen tanks and the

unpressurized compartment is a pallet

full of lithium-ion batteries and

associated adapter plates that will be

used to upgrade the station's power

configuration of the eight channels of

of the eight power channels onboard

station six have been upgraded with

lithium-ion batteries this pallet

carried on HTV nine will be used to

upgrade the final two power channels of

the International Space Station this is

the final flight of a birthing HTV the

next generation of HTV spacecraft will

be the HTV X with the ability to dock to

the International Space Station heading

into the international docking adapters

that are located on the forward end of

the International Space Station some

hardware aboard HTV nine well as being

tested now to verify that next

generation technology including an

experiment called wild some of the same

hardware will be used on HTV X wild is a

wireless interface it will be testing

Wi-Fi and data transmission to some of

the external wireless ports that are

outside the international space station

testing that Wi-Fi connection making

sure that telemetry and data has a good

transmission using that technology

this is Mission Control Houston HTV

still holding steady about 30 meters

away from the International Space

Station this is the final hold point

before it goes into its capture position

what you're seeing now is the view of

the crew aboard the International Space

Station Chris Cassidy the International

Space Station commander andy von Wagner

monitoring telemetry from the

International Space Station's cucu this

is a this is a work station that

provides telemetry of visiting vehicles

as they approach the International Space

Station the crew reported a good hold

and is ready for HTV to depart the

30-meter hold International Space

Station flight director Marcos Flores

still holding a go/no-go poll from

flight control centers across the globe

making sure everything's good for HTV to

depart that 30 meters the Barkers

scheduled just about 10 minutes from now

right before and war/battle sunrise we

may even see a little bit of light

[Music]

reflecting off of HTV solar panels as it

departs 30 meters and heads towards that

capture position captures still right on

track 7:15 am Central time 8:15 am

Eastern

station Houston unto HTV is ready to

proceed to the capture point expect

approach to resume shortly the copy

this is Mission Control Houston and

right on track flight control teams

across the globe are go to depart the

30-meter hold point from this view that

you're seeing now on the bottom right

column of telemetry you see range and

range rate once you see that start to

increase it'll be a way to tell that HTV

is moving slowly but surely towards its

capture position

again flight control teams and the crew

aboard the International Space Station

are go to depart that 30-meter hold

point will start saying HTV make its way

a little bit closer to the International

Space Station on the final approach

towards the capture position that'll be

about ten or twelve meters away from the

International Space Station right now

stationed in HTV flying in sync 263

statute miles over the middle of the

Pacific Ocean in an orbital nighttime

should expect a sunrise and maybe even

some Sun reflecting off of HTV here in

about eight to ten minutes

station Houston and to HTV has begun

approach from 30 meters monitor per step

nine and one decimal one zero two Valley

didn't work

this is Mission Control Houston HTV has

resumed its approach towards the

international space station heading

towards its to capture position he

noticed the rate is much lower than it

was I'm approaching the 30 meter hold

point now crawling at about 002 meters

per second

HTV 28 meters and closing a good rate

right on track to arrive at its capture

position a little less than 20 minutes

from now and puts us right on the time

line for the expected 7:15 am Central

time capture now it ain't heading into

an orbital daytime space station and HTV

266 statute miles over the South Pacific

Ocean Sun beginning to rise as HTV makes

its way from 30 meters towards its

capture position

Euston station with a block Bravo update

coming through 25 meters on the nav

range the light is within the corridor

the vehicle size matches the outline the

light is inside the circle and the

circle is at the crosshairs on both

monitors looking looking very nice

cut down that is a perfect report

on 20 meters from the International

Space Station just about halfway on its

trip from the 30 meter hold point

towards its capture position everything

right on the time line heading towards

capture arrival or a capture point

arrival about 13 minutes from now an

estimated to capture time of 7:15 am

Central time 8:15 am Eastern now in a

handover of some of the audio and visual

communications and telemetry and data

from the International Space Station

this is a look of the inside of the

International Space Station flight

control room teams here monitoring the

approach of HTV and of course the

systems and the crew aboard the

International Space Station teams here

working in tandem with HTV flight

control over in scuba Japan this team

been watching over the HTV vehicle since

it launched just five days ago and

staffing its five-day rendezvous of

course all wearing masks as a protective

measure against kovin 19

as they continue to monitor H TVs

approach a flight right on the timeline

again heading for a capture at 7:15 am

Central time that'll be the final time

HTV is captured aboard the International

Space Station next generation of HTV

vehicles upgraded for docking that'll be

the HTV X vehicle onboard HTV 9 though

is an experiment called wild it'll be

testing the wireless communication of

the future generation of HTV towards the

international space station testing a

Wi-Fi connection to the external

wireless capability of space station

transmitting data and making sure that

connection is good for that next

generation of HTV spacecraft

live view of HTV still heading towards

that capture position slowly but surely

16 meters and closing space station and

HTV just about 270 statute miles right

over the southern end of the Andes

mountain chain

since station block Bravo coming through

15 meters on the nav range the lights

within the quarter the vehicle matches

the vehicle size matches the outline the

circuit light is inside this circle in

this circle is on the crosshairs all

looking good copy another perfect report

at 50 meters a great view of HTV as it

crosses over the southern tip of South

America heading towards the East Coast

and into an orbital daytime over the

South Atlantic Ocean in view is the HTV

about 14 meters away from the

International Space Station closing in

to its capture position scheduled just

about eight minutes from now in view is

the Japanese experiment module and the

Japanese exposed facility and of course

the Japanese HTV heading towards the

Canadian robotic arm aboard the

International Space Station

HDV poised a little under 12 meters from

station slowing down but still making

its way towards the capture position

just a few minutes from now

HDV continuing to slow down just a

little more than 10 meters from station

now right on track for an on-time

arrival at the capture position no

changes to the capture time so far still

tracking 7:15 am Central time 8:15

am Eastern station and HTV flying 270

statute miles in an orbital daytime over

the South Atlantic Ocean

just minutes away from the capture point

arrival of HTV right in front of the

station's robotic arm we're in a short

handover now losing video and audio

temporarily from the international space

station should be regaining that shortly

again the next milestone will be the

arrival of HTV at is captured position

last we saw was a little under 10 meters

from station once we get a good

confirmed hold at that capture point the

next milestone will be another go no-go

pole to make sure everything is

everything is set from the flight

control teams here in the room and of

course internationally before Chris

Cassidy aboard the International Space

Station takes control of the station's

robotic arm assisted by Yvonne vogner of

Rose cosmos he'll take control of the

robotic arm and maneuver the arm towards

the capture interface that's mounted on

the outside of HTV for a good capture

once a hard capture is confirmed of the

12 ton vehicle

cassadee will hand over control of the

station's robotic arm to robotics

officers it'll take some time for that

robotic arm to maneuver the 12 ton

vehicle over to its its birthing port

this port located on the nadir or the

earth-facing side of the harmony module

that is at the forward end of the space

station it'll take some time to maneuver

that and have all four latches go and

all 16 bolts in place for a firm birth

of HTV to the International Space

Station that all coming up very soon

first the arrival of HTV at the capture

position station Houston and two

confirmed capture point hold per step

ten in one decimal one zero to ten it

work

Houston station the capture point is

confirmed the grapple fixture remains

within their capsule volume on both

camera views and we copy

confirming a good hold of HTV 92 meters

from the International Space Station

this is a look at the inside of the

International Space Station flight

control room led by flight director

marcos flores leslie ringo as the capcom

the voice you're hearing from here in

Mission Control Houston

to the crew responding is Chris Cassidy

International Space Station commander

now that HTV has arrived at its capture

point holding steady teams here will

conduct a go/no-go poll making sure that

all everything is looking good before

Cassidy takes control of the robotic arm

and maneuvers it for a capture of HTV

everything's still on track for a

capture on time today the schedule has

us at 7:15 am Central time for that

capture

again four tons total of cargo inside

HTV within the pressurized volume is

fresh food water resupply and nitrogen

resupply all to restock the

International Space Station crew for

food and of course the consumables

aboard the International Space Station

in addition is the unpressurized volume

of lithium ion batteries and adapter

plates stacked on an external pallet

that will be removed robotically from

HTV once it has been birthed to the

International Space Station there's a

pallet now that was delivered on HTV

eight mounted robotically on the outside

of the International Space Station it's

loaded with old nickel hydrogen

batteries there'll be a robotic swap of

the new pallet full of Neth lithium-ion

batteries swapping that pallet for the

old pallet old pallet will be put back

into HTV for disposal of the old nickel

hydrogen batteries those lithium-ion

batteries will be mounted outside the

International Space Station ready for

installation through spacewalks on the

starboard 6 trust of the International

Space Station completing the upgrades of

the final two power channels of the

International Space Station and here it

is we're getting those views back from

the TDRs satellites the tracking and

data recently satellites that provide us

this high-definition view from the

International Space Station there it is

HTV 9 holding at its capture position

nine point two meters away from the

International Space Station you see the

robotic arm there to the bottom left of

your screen

each TVs flight is done now just holding

at the capture position the rest of the

work to be done by Chris Cassidy aboard

the International Space Station

prepare for capture percept 11 + 1

decimal 1 0 to 11 and work

there you have it Capcom leslie ringo

confirming to put forward the work of

configuring the arm chris cassidy

performing that work now aided by Yvonne

vogner of Rose cosmos matches the

procedure that capture prep confirmed

and the crew is ready for the HTV

capture copy standby for capture

this is Mission Control Houston you

heard good words from the crew aboard

the International Space Station their

view of HTV and all the telemetry

they're receiving has them go now

conducting a go/no-go poll here in

reconfiguration it was an honor for

expedition 63 to be part of the final

HTV mission a vehicle that has

contributed so greatly to the

International Space Station program

congratulations to our firms and

colleagues in Tsukuba and christian IMM

congratulations on an excellent job

capturing kana torii from the first

arrival of a Jaxx's HDTV cargo ship on

September 17 2009 this invaluable

resource from our Japanese partners has

delivered vital supplies experiments and

new batteries to extend the life of the

station there's arrival of the final in

this series of this genre of HTV

vehicles marks a transition to a new and

even more capable vehicle in the HDTV X

which will soon make it to debut we

congratulate our Japanese colleagues for

a magnificent chapter in Space Station

history and wish them all the best in

the next phase of resupplying the

International Space Station in the years

ahead
