There you have it….as Sunday 13 Dec draws to a close, so does Day 1 of Joint Operations for the E9B launch campaign. Our day started early, Airbus prepared and transferred the fully fueled SC from Hall 103A thru to Hall 101. Once in H101 a plethora of operations took place prior to the actual lifting of the SC and mating with the KhSC Payload Adapter. The remainder of the day has been spent connecting umbilicals, running a battery of electrical tests, and finalizing preparations prior to the lifting and mating with our Breeze-M. It has been a day of multiple teams of specialists performing incredibly detail orientated work. Tonight’s operations will close with another electrical test and review of test results.
Tomorrow Monday 14 Dec will be Day 2 of Joint Operations and yes…you guessed it, another early kick-off for the day.
