Delft checkout initiated

 

Over the last weeks, CubeSat Flight Models (and their GSE) arrived at ISL’s premises in Delft, the Netherlands.

With one of them,  the Delft checkout campaign was initiated. After careful extraction from its shipping container, this Singaporean 3U CubeSat was subjected to a check-out. Such a checkout is performed to ascertain what a craft’s status is after shipment, which was found to be satisfactory.

The checkout was followed by a fit-check of the CubeSat in its assigned QuadPack-canister; this also yielded positive results.
