On 30 August 2018, the CHaracterizing ExOPlanets Satellite, Cheops, was delivered to ESA's technical centre in The Netherlands for acoustic noise and electromagnetic compatibility tests. When these are complete, the satellite will return to Airbus Defence and Space Spain in Madrid for the final preparations before being shipped to Europe’s spaceport in Kourou for launch.
