On 12 October 2018 the MIST subsystems were stacked up for the first time to see that they fit inside the central 1U unit of MIST. The check went well and the subsystem stack will be electrically tested in this integrated fashion for a period. Then the subsystems will again be mounted on the Flatsat board.
The completed subsystem stack. The radio is on top. We have left coax cables attached to avoid wearing out the very small coaxial connectors on the radio.
David and Agnes checking distances. Note the ESD (ElectroStatic Discharge) discipline!
These are the clearances that we wanted to check.
We need to reduce this length by shortening the spacers on the left,
which should not be a problem.
