#2 AsiaSat 9 Subsystems Integration Making Good Progress

Integration activities of AsiaSat 9’s communication panels were under way. 114 kg of spacecraft wiring were secured to the panels. Unit installations are ongoing with electrical testing conducted to verify the health of the integrated units.

Propulsion subassembly integration and welding are also in process at SSL’s propulsion lab. The propulsion subsystem performs important functions such as to transfer the spacecraft between orbits, to control the mission orbit and the spacecraft attitude using its on-board thruster systems.
