MKI'ers Celebrate The Delivery Of TESS Flight Cameras To Orbital/ATK

Thursday, June 29, 2017

At the end of June, after more than 6+ months of testing at NE83, the TESS flight delivery cameras were delivered to Lincoln Lab, who then sent them to Orbital/ATK in Dulles, VA, for integration with the satellite.  Two of the cameras have already been mounted onto the camera plate; the other two are expected to be mounted soon.  The flight computer (ADHU) will be delivered July 8.  In the months ahead the camera plate and ADHU will go onto the spacecraft.
