Process of exercising docking operations with use of hybrid simulation on the 6th-degrees dynamic test bench is observed. The motion of the manipulator and the module herewith is described with differential equations, and the docking assemblies are real samples. The main purpose of such practice is the evaluation of two different ways to control this operation by two technical systems certified for different initial conditions and different interface load. In the result of testing the data have been received, that prove capability to perform docking operation with given constraints under the condition of more flexible way of control.
