CubETH [ETH Zürich]
The Swiss CubETH is a cooperative CubeSat project of ETH Zürich (Eidgenössische Technische Hochschule Zürich), the SSC (Swiss Space Center) at the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, several universities of Applied Sciences, and Swiss companies.>
The nanosatellite measures 10 cm × 10 cm cm × 10 cm and follows the 1U CubeSat form factor. CubETH carries several low-cost single-frequency GNSS receivers of the type u-blox NEO-7N. The satellite is based on the earlier SwissCube.
In the cooperative project, SSC is responsible for the satellite and ETH-GGL is responsible for the scientific payload.
The scientific goals of the project are:
CubETH was planned to be launched piggy-back in late 2015, but has been delayed. A launch vehicle has not yet been selected.
