Following the successful demonstration launch of Antares A-ONE in 2013, Orb-D1 carried Antares' first Cygnus capsule to the International Space Station. While Orb-D1 was also a test mission, it successfully delivered Cygnus to the ISS along with 1,550 lbs of cargo.

The Cygnus spacecraft aboard Orb-D1 was named the S.S. G. David Low.
