On 27 September 2018, the CHEOPS satellite left ESA's technical centre in The Netherlands, where it had undergone acoustic noise and electromagnetic compatibility tests. After these tests, it returned to Airbus Defence and Space Spain in Madrid for the final preparations before being shipped to Europe's spaceport in Kourou for launch.
