This fortnight began with susceptibility tests to detect any interference between the various instruments and the electronic boxes of the PIM (payload module) through the harnesses. The very good results obtained were not certain, as it had not been possible to carry out these tests on the satellite’s qualification model following the lockdown in March 2020.

The rest of the activities were devoted to finalising the routing of the harnesses, closing the platform panels, closing the PIM panels and assembling the antennas. Finally, the PIM was assembled on the platform. The SVOM satellite is now fully assembled and is in its final configuration as it will be in orbit.

After a health check on the PIM and the platform, the satellite was transferred to the anechoic chamber for radiated electromagnetic compatibility tests.
