The ETRSS 1 (Ethiopian Remote Sensing Satellite) remote sensing satellite is Ethiopia's first satellite, which will provide data on changes in climate and weather-related phenomena that would be utilized for the country's key targets in agriculture, forestry as well as natural resources protection initiatives.
ETRSS 1 is a 70 kg multi-spectral remote sensing satellite developed and built by CAST. It will be operated by the Ethiopian Space Science and Technology Institute.
Launch is planned for December 2019 as a secondary payload on a CZ-2D (2) rocket.
