Eaglet 1 is the first nanosatellite by OHB Italia SpA for Earth Observation.

Eaglet 1 is a 3U+ cubesat with 5 m panchromatic resolution capabilities, using a 300 mm focal length telescope with an aperture of 85 mm. The overall mass is less than 5 kg. The satellite has a precise attitude control system based on Earth, Sun, Star Tracker and GPS sensors. The attitude control system makes use of reaction wheel and utilizes magneto-torquers for their desaturation. In addition to the EO mission, Eaglet shall embark an AIS payload.

Eaglet 1 has reached its final testing stage and is ready for launch on the Space Flight SSO-A mission on a Falcon-9 v1.2 from Vandenberg Air Force Base, during August 2018.
