SPACE VEHICLE HIGHLIGHT
The Relativity Mission (GP-B) flight computer (CCCA) is in house and will be testing in the Integrated Test Facility (ITF) next week. It is planned to install it on the spacecraft in the following weeks. At that point, the major command and data handling hardware is available to start subsystem testing which is an important milestone in preparation for payload integration.
