DUTHSat (Democritus University of Thrace Satellite) is a Greek 2U-CubeSat constructed by the Democritus University of Thrace (DUTH) Space Research Laboratory part of the QB50 mission.
As a payload for QB50, the satellite carries a multineedle Langmuir probe (mNLP) sampling the electron density of the space around it, Thermistors and a Magnetometer.
The secondary payload is DUTH's ASCIs Board and ULPDAQ chip.
The satellite was launched with the bulk of the QB50 constellation to the ISS in 2017, from where the satellite was deployed on 25 May 2017.
