ESA Project Manager Richard Francis speaks during the CryoSat-2 pre-launch briefing.
Earlier today, the pre-launch briefing took place involving the PI, the Project Manager, industry representatives and members of the extended 'team of teams' at ESOC supporting operations. The briefing provided the latest technical information on launch preparations and status of the satellite and launcher.
It's a traditional yet crucial step that confirmed the teams, computers, networks and ground stations supporting the mission are ready for liftoff.
