The Company conducted the tests near the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station landing zone 1 in Florida and launched two one-second burns on two of Dragon's 16 Draco engines. These engines are used for maneuvering, attitude control and reorientation of the spacecraft. The crew of Dragon crew then lit eight SuperDraco engines to accelerate the spacecraft away from its launcher for nine seconds, then reviewing the test data and working on a demonstration of Crew Dragon's escape capabilities during the flight. After that. November 13, 2019
The Draco engines and SuperDraco engines fired in the same order in which they had to realign themselves during the flight to trigger the parachute and close the flaps before the atmosphere returned occurred. These tests will help SpaceX and NASA validate Crew Dragon's rescue system prior to a scheduled on-flight demonstration. Before this demonstration can be performed, both NASA and SpaceX must review the data from these tests, perform hardware inspections, and set a date for the on-the-fly cancellation test.
