Progress M-22M (Russian: Прогресс М-22М), identified by NASA as Progress 54P, is a Progress spacecraft used by Roskosmos to resupply the International Space Station (ISS) during 2014.[2] Progress M-22M was built by RKK Energia. Progress M-22M was launched on a six-hours rendezvous profile towards the ISS. The 22nd Progress-M 11F615A60 spacecraft to be launched, it had the serial number 422.

Launch

The spacecraft was launched on 5 February 2014 at 16:23:32 UTC from the Baikonur Cosmodrome in Kazakhstan.[3] The launch was the first Russian orbital launch of 2014.

Docking

An ISS Progress resupply vehicle approaches the International Space Station, carrying food, fuel and supplies for the Expedition 38 crew members. The spacecraft completed its four-orbit trek when it docked automatically to the station's Pirs docking compartment.

Progress M-22M docked with the Pirs docking compartment on 5 February at 22:22 UTC, less than six hours after launch.

Cargo

The Progress spacecraft carries 2370 kg of cargo and supplies to the International Space Station.[4]
