Testing began on 24 September 2004 and has been completely successful, meaning that together with Alcatel, Hispasat can begin verification of the data. Once accepted, the official commercial transfer to Hispasat can be made and full exploitation of AmerHis' capabilities will begin; some of these capabilities include high-speed Internet access, MPEG-based services, video and radio on demand, all at a much lower cost than previously possible.
The most recent In Orbit Test was performed methodically, first with dedicated down-link and up-link operations to check basic payload functions. Following this, tests were done of the signal transmission from Arganda to another ground station near Rio de Janeiro in Brazil, detailed payload signal processing checks, and finally radio-frequency parameter exploitation and signal routing. The AmerHis Operational System Validation Testbed (AOSVT) was designed especially for this test.
