A hoisting device has been built around Swarm's three-satellite and launch adapter assembly. This will be used to lift the assembly onto the Breeze upper stage of the Rockot launcher.
This involved mounting the lower hoisting ring to the adapter. Then three vertical beams were bolted to the lower ring. To complete the hoisting structure, a second ring was mounted to stabilise the beams.
