skCUBE is a 1U CubeSat for educational and popularisation outreach developed by the Slovak Organization for Space Activities (SOSA). It is Slovakia's first satellite.

skCUBE carries a digipeater on UHF, a CW beacon on UHF and an imager using 2.4 GHz downlinks. There will be other additional experiments including a VLF receiver.

It was to be launched utilizing Spaceflight’s Sherpa system on a Falcon-9 v1.2 launch vehicle to a sun-synchronous orbit in the first quarter of 2016, but was rebooked to a PSLV-XL launch in 2017.
