MOSCOW, January 8. /TASS/. Production and ground tests of the newest Kurs-MKP automated rendezvous system for space vehicles to dock to the International Space Station (ISS) have been completed, the Russian Space Systems holding company said on Tuesday.

"In the outgoing year, the Research Institute of Precision Instruments (incorporated into the Russian Space Systems holding company) has completed production and successfully conducted acceptance tests of the Kurs-MKP new digital equipment," said a statement posted on the company’s website.

"The new equipment considerably surpasses the equipment currently functioning at the ISS in accuracy and energy efficiency," it said.

The Kurs-MKP system consists of stand-alone modules so the system’s uninterrupted operation can be ensured both in pressurized sections of an orbital station and in conditions of possible depressurization, the company pointed out.

Currently, the Russian cargo and manned spacecraft are operating the Kurs-NA system to dock with the ISS.
