Second Galileo Full Operational Capability (FOC) satellite following acoustic testing simulating the extreme noise of a rocket launch, after the doors of the Large European Acoustic Facility (LEAF) were opened in September 2013. Note the speaker horn embedded in the wall of the LEAF to the left. Microphones surround the satellite to check the sound levels while the blue-insulated lines harness data from accelerometers inside the satellite, checking on internal vibration.
