Integration Week and EAR report out (big success!!)

Jose and Sebastian went to Bremen last week for Integration Week and EAR (Experiment Acceptance Review) with ZARM/DLR. They had a busy week preparing for Vibration and Shock testing, Experiment Timeline tests, and Communications tests. Despite a few small hiccups, all tests passed successfully and they left Bremen with an Unconditional Pass!

Below are some pics and videos of the event.

Looking good!
