The work on monitoring the parameters of solar panels involves the disclosure of the jig sites , where the space ship is installed, the installation of technological tables, removal of the protective panels from the solar batteries and their disclosure, after which by special illuminators the monitoring of their functioning was performed.

At the end of the work, the batteries were folded and closed again by protective panels.
