The mockup was delivered to RSC Energia on November 8, and on November 9 it was put into its permanent place in the main room of the checkout and testing facility. After the mockup has been completely outfitted, it will be officially handed over to the Corporation for factory check tests, which will include stand-alone and integrated tests of the systems within this product, as well as joint tests with the ground integrated testing facilities which currently simulate other ISS RS modules at our company.
