Wow, I wonder what effect firing that thing has on the orbit of the main vehicle.

No problem, they release the Impactor 40 min. before ignit.

Here is some good information and graphics. (Google translation)

Hayabusa2 completes first integration test

All processes of the Hayabusa2's first integration test since January this year were completed on June 7. The test aimed at installing all onboard devices onto the satellite structure and confirming interfaces among them. During the mass property measurement, the last process of the integration test, the "Hayabusa2" exposed its full shape for the first time with all devices for the test installed.

We will remove each device from the main body of the Hayabusa2, then the devices will be given their final touches. They will be tested again and assembled again to the explorer for the next-phase test. All the project team members will do our best as we have done to steadily implement the Hayabusa2 project.

Hayabusa2 Small Carry-on Impactor undergoes test

Hayabusa2’s Small Carry-on Impactor (SCI) underwent a test in October, 2013.

The SCI is a device to create an artificial crater of the asteroid 1999JU3, which the Hayabusa 2 will travel toward. By making and observing an artificial crater, we can acquire data not only about the surface but also about the inside of the asteroid. In addition, by sampling near the crater, we can collect inside samples of the asteroid.

Hayabusa2 applies a method to throw a metal projectile against the asteroid with high speed to create an artificial crater. Through the test this time, we confirmed the accelerating part of the projectile while aiming to verify if its speed, configuration, and thrown direction precision met the design when the pyrotechnics, which were comparable to those of actual ones for the flight, were ignited to set off the projectile.

The test results were very impressive as the speed and configuration were almost as designed, and the direction precision was also good as the SCI precisely hit a target that was 100 meters away. We were able to successfully complete the performance confirmation test of the SCI pyrotechnic part.

I can't wait to see the footage from DCAM... that's going to be fantastic. Hopefully it doesn't get nailed by a piece of debris.

Have the conspiracy theorists started saying that SCI is so JAXA can fight the asteroid people yet?
