Integrated System Test-3: Underway and On Time

22 August 2005

The past week has seen the beginning of the IST-3. The payload has been tested and confirmed to be in good condition after the shipment to the launch site earlier this month. The remainder of the satellite will now be tested to ensure its readiness for launch. The pace of activities is well measured and the launch teams are working steadily towards their goal of the October 26 launch.
