I feel that I have to insert a comment here for the sake of future 
readers/analysis:

" The probe itself does not have design flows. "

This is a speculation on my part, however very likely what's originally 
meant in Russian was “The probe does not have [certain] design flows”. 
Quite likely, referring to a possible issue with external tanks 
screening/obstructing antennas.

Thanks.

PS.  " on the current orbit " was definitely meant by me as " on the current 
orbit [and then on what's left of it]".
