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 in Addis Ababa.

Launch took place in December 2019 as a secondary payload on a CZ-4B rocket.
