Czech technological nanosatellite

Developed by research institution, commercial companies and universities

We are in the orbit

VZLUSAT-1 was launched on June 23, 2017 on the LEO with the altitude 510km in the international mission QB50.

The proposed project is the development, manufacturing, qualification and experimental verification of product / technology in orbit (ie. IOD - In Orbit Demonstration) that produce and develop industrial partners. These are radiation-resistant composite housing electronics with high thermal conductivity, a solar panel on the composite substrate array of hollow fillet reflectors on composite-based sensors external environment and the development and manufacturing of components necessary for implementing the experiment on nanosatelite VZLUSAT-1 in orbit, a mechanism hinged panels and the measuring electronics.
