The cargo for the CRS-5 mission includes the Cloud Aerosol Transport System (CATS), which is a light detection and ranging remote sensing instrument that is designed to measure the location, composition and distribution of pollution, dust, smoke, aerosols and other particulates in the atmosphere.
 
Also a part of the mission is the attempt by SpaceX to return the first stage of the Falcon 9 rocket through the atmosphere and to land it on a 90-meter by 50-meter (300-foot by 160-foot) floating platform
 
The platform is called the autonomous spaceport drone ship, an ocean-going, barge-derived, floating landing platform that SpaceX will use to land returning first-stage boosters.
 
The drone ship platform is part of a system (called the reusable launch system development program) being developed by SpaceX that will drastically lower the cost of space launch services.
