AMOS is in charge of the development of the unit telescopes for the MRO interferometer. This paper depicts the progress of the project and presents the results of the factory acceptance tests that were performed at AMOS facilities. Those tests are the earliest verifications of the telescope performance. AMOS has now extensive experience in testing small and large instruments, including optical testing, alignment, mechanical static, dynamic measurements, system identification, etc. It is this combination of various techniques of measurement that produce accurate and reliable results.
