Sentinel-3B Mounted onto Breeze-KM Upper Stage

Yesterday the Sentinel-3B together with the launcher adapter was hoisted onto the Breeze-KM upper stage. As both the satellite and the upper stage are fuelled and pressurized it was a very sensitive operation.

Following the hoisting of Sentinel-3B onto the Breeze-KM, the stack was fixed with bolts, all interfaces were connected and the Rockot Upper Stage was closed with Multi Layer Insulation (MLI).
