Satellite Stack and Tilt

July 3, 2011 3:00 am (GMT)
ILS Launch Team

In the last two days, two more important milestones have been accomplished.  The SES-3 spacecraft (SC) was placed on top of the KazSat-2 SC, and the “stack” was tilted into a horizontal position for encapsulation into the payload fairing.  Today, the Orbital electrical team will check the internal Proton umbilical transit lines.  All operations are proceeding according to schedule and there are no issues.

Fourth of July events scheduled for near future!
