AIT Activities at CSG (Kourou)

Under an ESA contract, SAB’s Team performed the integration of the PROBA-V-SSIS at the Guiana Space Centre in Kourou, French Guiana.

The PROBA-V Satellite was secured onto the Small Satellite Interface System (SSIS), which includes the separation system and interface to the Vega Secondary Payload Adapter (VESPA).

Then, the PROBA-V-SSIS composite was moved to another building to be fitted on top of the VESPA.
