Orbiter and lander integration and test activities are proceeding on schedule with no significant problems. Acoustic testing of the orbiter was completed successfully on Feb 25. Orbiter electromagnetic compatibility testing will be conducted next week. Mechanical integration of the lander to the cruise configuration is in process. Installation of the landing legs, medium gain antenna, and solar arrays on the lander is complete and the vehicle will be encapsulated within the aeroshell next week. The lander spacecraft in full cruise configuration will be transported to the acoustics lab at Lockheed Martin on March 9.
