This paper reports on the thermal testing of AGILE (Astro-rivelatore Gamma a Immagini LEggero) satellite flight model, conducted in June/July 2006 at IABG test facility.
The paper describe the satellite mission, the logic for the selection of the test configuration, the test set-up and the test phases. The test results are presented and test-model (of the scientific instruments) correlation analysis between measured and calculated are discussed.
