Soyuz-TMA 09M [NASA]
The modified Soyuz TMA manned spacecraft for transporting Crews to the ISS has been developed on the basis of a Soyuz TMA spacecraft. In the new version, the Argon-16 computer (introduced on Soyuz-T back in the 1970s) is replaced by the new TsVM-101 computer. The latter is a much more capable computer, is almost 10 times lighter (8.3 kg vs. 70 kg) and much smaller. The analogue telemetry system is also replaced by a smaller digital telemetry system called MBITS.
It is to provide rescue of the main crew of the station in emergency and delivery of visiting crews.
During the flight the spacecraft fulfills the following tasks:
During a pressure test, the descent module of vehicle №704 was damaged beyond repair. The descent module was replaced with the one, which was originally planned to be used in vehicle №707. This repaired vehicle received the serial number №704A and flew on the Soyuz-TMA 07M mission.
During the missions of both Soyuz-TMA 14M and Soyuz-TMA 17M, one of the solar arrays remained stuck after launch and deployed only during the docking with the ISS.
