Orbiter and lander integration and test activities are proceeding on schedule with no significant problems. Orbiter electromagnetic compatibility testing is in process and will be completed next week. Mechanical integration of the lander to the cruise configuration is in process. The lander vehicle will be encapsulated within the aeroshell on Mar 9. The lander spacecraft in full cruise configuration will be transported to the acoustics lab at Lockheed Martin on Mar 18.

The Thermal and Evolved Gas Analyzer (TEGA) flight instrument integration is complete. Testing and calibration of the TEGA is in process at the University of Arizona.
