The CHEOPS spacecraft on a ground support structure inside the Large European Acoustic Facility (LEAF) test chamber at ESA's European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC) in Noordwijk, the Netherlands, on 5 November 2015.

On 6 November, CHEOPS – composed of the spacecraft platform Structural Qualification Model (SQM) and the Instrument Structural and Thermal Model (STM) – was subjected to several acoustic tests here.

The white circular holes in the wall of the acoustic test facility, seen in the background on the left, are the ends of large sound horns that are used to produce  noise for the acoustic tests.
