In recent days, in the facilities of the Laboratory of Integration and Tests (LIT) of the National Institute for Space Research (INPE), Brazil, electromagnetic interference tests over Argentine satellite SAC-D/Aquarius as well as environmental tests on the solar panels of it took place.

Also, measurements on the property of mass (mass, center of mass and inertia tensors) on the satellite platform are currently being carried out. Meanwhile National Commission on Space Activities (CONAE) prepares in final form the Model of Engineering (functional replica of the satellite) for further operations simulation at the Mission Control Center (CCT), in the Province of Córdoba, Argentina.
