The BepiColombo Mercury Composite Spacecraft (MCS) on the Multishaker in the Test Centre at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, prior to a low-level sinusoidal vibration test run along the X-axis.

The MCS was fitted with accelerometers at important points on its structure, to measure the displacements induced by the vibrations. The data-logging equipment for the sensors can be seen in front of and to the right of the shaker and spacecraft stack.
