''In all, Discovery’s payload for the STS-133 mission will be the ELC-4 (ExPRESS Logistics Carrier 4) and the Permanent Multi-purpose Module (PMM) for the ISS (International Space Station).
For the ELC-4, the pallet was delivered to the Kennedy Space Center via a C-5 transport on August 15, 2009 for receiving inspection and preliminary processing work for the STS-133/ULF-5 (Utilization and Logistics Flight 5) flight.
Currently, ELC-4 processing tasks are ahead of the pre-planned timelines.
Moreover, the first of the two primary cargo elements to be attached to the ELC-4 – the ExPCA #4 (ExPRESS Pallet Controller Avionics 4) – was delivered to Kennedy on February 19 with the HRSR (Heat Rejection System Radiator) FSE (Flight Support Equipment) expected to arrive on April 1.
Processing of the ELC and its cargo elements will become an integrated effort on May 19 when the ExPCA is scheduled for installation onto ELC-4. Installation of the HRSR ORU (Orbital Replacement Unit) onto ELC-4 is currently scheduled for June 3.''
