VZLUSAT-1 – more then one month in the orbit

The VZLUSAT-1 nanosatellite was developed on the basis of a standardized CubeSat 2U platform (20x10x10cm) in the Czech Aerospace Research Centre (VZLU) in cooperation with Czech companies and universities.


Nanosatellite VZLUSAT-1 in laboratory

Ing. Ladislav Sieger from our Department of Physics led the successfully defended master's thesis of Ing. Veronika Stehlíková, Ing. Martin Urban and Ing. Ondřej Nentvich from the Department of Radio Electronics. They engaged in the development, construction and testing of the satellite together with Ing. Tomáš Báka.

On June 23, 2017, the two-kilogram Czech nanosatellite VZLUSAT-1 was transported to the Earth's orbit using the PSLV-C38 rocket launched from Indian space spaceport at Sri Charikota Island. Now the nanosatellite circulates on a polar track at an altitude of 505 km with an orbital velocity of 7610 m/s
