Following the successful completion of those activities, a fit-check of the Nayif-1 FM was performed in its QuadPack canister, which also went satisfactory.
Never having been too far away from their satellite, as this team hand-carried their satellite all the way to Delft, activities for the Suchai team could commence on Thursday 14 April.
After having discussed and agreed upon the planning of that day and the compulsory cleanroom-briefing, all the brought-along equipment was cleaned and the Suchai team successfully completed their planned activities for today. Tomorrow they will be joined with the satellites of the two other teams to fill up their QuadPack-slot.
Having gone through the same preparatory activities, the KAUSAT-5 team entered the ISL clean-room also on 11 April 2016. There the team was reunited with their satellite when they opened the transport case (in which it had been packed together with another satellite).
Likewise, integration of KAUSAT-5 is planned to be done tomorrow.
They set up their working station with the needed equipment after which their satellite, which up to then had been safely stored in ISL’s part of ISIS’ clean-room, was retrieved from its transport-case and final check-out activities were successfully performed.
Subsequently, their now-flight-ready satellite was again stored to await integration into its QuadPack-slot tomorrow.
With this first blog, providing the official ISILaunch09 logo, we hereby initiate the ISILaunch09 blog.
A considerable number of important activities have been completed this week and we will retrospectively provide blogs about those.
For upcoming activities we will write a blog, showing the progression of your satellites leading all the way up to launch.
If you have anything that you would like to have posted on this blog, please contact us.
