At the Rockot integration facility MIK the dispenser system is unpacked and assembled after having been transported to the cosmodrome from Khrunichev's facilities in the Moscow Fili district. The dispenser system is a vital part of the launch vehicle hardware, because once in orbit it is responsible to release the three Swarm satellites with an accurately defined direction and speed away from the Breeze-KM upper stage. At the same time the preparation of ESA's Swarm satellites continues with checkouts of the thermal control systems and battery charging operations.
