SpaceX CRS-14, also known as SpX-14, is a cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station currently manifested to be launched on February 2018. The mission was contracted by NASA and is flown by SpaceX.
Launch schedule history
On Early 2015, NASA awarded a contract extension to SpaceX for three CRS additional missions (CRS-13 to CRS-15). As of June 2016, a NASA Inspector General report had this mission manifested for August 2018.
NASA has contracted for the CRS-14 mission from SpaceX and therefore determines the primary payload, date/time of launch, and orbital parameters for the Dragon space capsule. According to a NASA Inspector General report of June 2016, CRS-14 is expected to carry 2,760 kg (6,080 lb) of pressurized mass and 550 kg (1,210 lb) of unpressurized. According to a 2016 presentation, the external payloads manifested for this flights were RRM3, PFCS and SDS.
