The integration week took place just around the corner for us at ZARM, so we could just take our experiment and tools and walk down the street.
Because of difficulties in delivery, our camera holders arrived too late and the shaker test could not take place on Monday morning as scheduled. Fortunately in the end a new date was fixed for Thursday.
What an exciting test for us! We were worried about our experiment which we are working on for quite long time now – especially when we heard weird sounds during testing. The most thrilling moment was probably when the curve showing the load at different frequencies suddenly dropped for one of the sensors. We all had a sigh of relief when we found out that it was only the sensor wiring which came loose.
But our experiment was able to withstand the stress due to the very solid construction of Olli and Julian!
Another important step during the integration week was the integrated testing together with the other experiments. We were able to demonstrate a working communication with the service module.
