The Russian ISS Progress 62 cargo ship re-docked to the International Space Station’s Pirs docking compartment at 2:05 a.m. EDT after a short test flight.

The system test included verification of software and a new signal converter incorporated in the upgraded manual docking system for future use in Progress vehicles in the unlikely event the “Kurs” automated rendezvous system encounters a problem.
