We have begun stress testing our instrument electronics. Last week we subjected our instrument to the first thermal tests, these tests place our instruments in conditions with temperatures below negative 50 degree celsius. Results were promising and more tests are soon to follow to prepare for shipping to the launch site.

Such testing is important to ensure that the instrument will withstand conditions such as high variation in temperature and other conditions at our flight altitude. Instrument failure during flight is a major risk for any project and we are attempting to forse every condition possible to prepare our instrument for the flight to come.

As always,

Best from the CPT-SCOPE Team.
