In the mean time the Space Head Module has been retrieved from the launch silo after a successful fit-check. Currently it is being prepared for the integration with all the satellites. In a few days the integration of platform A will commence, which will include placing the iMDC and QuadPack systems which will be responsible for deploying the satellites from platform A once it is released by the Dnepr launch vehicle.
