LUVMI preliminary integration
At the end of May the LUVMI team met up at Space Applications Services Ltd in Belgium to perform a set of rover and instrument tests.
The first series of test were to ensure that the individual instruments fitted to the rover.
This is an important test to perform especially as the different parts of the rover and the instruments were manufactured in different European countries.
The next tests involved testing that the rover computer was able to talk to and understand the reply from the instruments.
All tests were successful and the outcome of the meeting paves the way for full integration and rover testing in the coming months.
