Tilting and rotating CHEOPS for EMC testing
During EMC testing at ESA's technical centre in the Netherlands, the CHEOPS satellite was mounted on mechanical ground support equipment that allowed its attitude with respect to the test antennas to be varied. Different types of test antenna, each covering different frequency ranges, can be seen on tripods in the background. The foam pyramids distributed on the floor are arranged to absorb reflections from the metal mechanical ground support equipment (painted white).
