Integration tests are conducted on assembled observational instrument.

All groups cooperate for the integration testing of observational instruments before the final departure from ATC.

After assembling all the parts and devices into an instrument, integration tests are conducted to verify that the required performance criteria can be met under conditions which simulate the actual operational environments. Resilience to vibration caused by a launch or an earthquake, and operational and control testing under low-temperature and vacuum conditions are checked here. Some tests use the large cleanroom or the large vacuum chamber of ATC to avoid contamination from materials and dust.
