Sound numerical modeling is capable of providing important predictive information about the solar wind interaction with the local interstellar medium. The results of our three-dimensional simulation show a good agreement with Voyager observations from 2007 to 2010. We analyze the termination shock properties at the Voyager crossing points and juxtapose them with the observed data. The heliospheric current sheet structure in the inner heliosheath is examined.
