Taking into account its scale and number of participant parties, the International Space Station (ISS) is considered to be a unique international project.
The ISS is the most state-of-the-art experimental base for development of new technologies and human studies; high-class scientific research laboratory where the research started at the Russian manned Mir Space Station is carried out forward.
The ISS development featured a wide range of principles developed by TsNIImash for the Mir Space Station: modular construction, assembling in the orbit, dynamic design of the large-scale structures, sufficient number of docking nodes, long-term operational lifetime.
The ISS continuous fail-safe long-term operation is ensured due to the successful operation support performed by TsNIImash MCC where the corresponding specialists in main and support onboard systems work in shifts twenty four-seven.
