    Background: SYNOPSIS: installation in the Climatic chamber for hot and cold operation tests. This is to ensure that the satellite electronics system will function under the extremes of temperature experienced in orbit.

    Installation of PROSPERO in the vibration chamber to subject it to the vibrations it will experience during launch.

    Spinning PROSPERO during dynamic balance test
    Mechanical checks of the spacecraft structure, undertaken before and after each phase of testing.

    Solar stimulation of the solar cells with the spacecraft spinning to check that the power outputs are acceptable.

    Swinging the spacecraft during moment of inertia checks.
