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.[1] 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).[2] As of June 2016, a NASA Inspector General report had this mission manifested for August 2018.[3]

Primary payload

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.[3] According to a 2016 presentation, the external payloads manifested for this flights were RRM3, PFCS and SDS.[4][5]
