Two (more)

With the first (co-) passenger integrated into its assigned canister of the first QuadPack, activities proceeded on Tuesday 29 April with check-out and fit-check of one of the CubeSats sharing another canister in this particular QuadPack. These activities were successfully completed for this 2U CubeSat in anticipation of the arrival of its 1U co-passenger.

On Thursday 1 May the other CubeSat, being an Israeli one, arrived. A brief check-out, as well as a fit-check of that 2U satellite, was completed, followed by integration of the two CubeSats. First, the 2U was accommodated, quickly followed by the 1U insertion and closure of the door of the second canister of the first QuadPack.
