    Operational Requirements
    Angular rate vector gyrometer, Fixed star meter to measure angular rates and station location.

    Operational Protocols
    Reception of integrated information from the ISS guidance navigation and control system (GNC) sensors and TV cameras of spacecraft maneuvering near the ISS (Shuttle, Soyuz, Progress) to determine dynamic characteristics of the ISS (ratios of moments of inertia, aerodynamic characteristics, center of gravity of the ISS, etc.). Updating of mathematical models of the ISS onboard systems used for flight control.
