CHEOPS the first Swiss designed satellite telescope has been successfully launched from the Guyana Space Centre on 18 December 2019.

The CHEOPS mission dedicated to the characterization of exoplanets from which it takes its name is a collaboration between ESA and Switzerland.
For the first time, Switzerland is leading an international scientific consortium specialising in research on exoplanets, a field in which Switzerland has excelled for more than 25 years with a very high level of international recognition, this year with the award of the Nobel Prize in Physics to Mr Mayor and Mr Queloz.
This consortium, led by Professor Willy Benz of the University of Bern and director of the national research centre PlanetS, has entrusted Almatech SA with the construction of the ultra-stable structure of the telescope’s optical system, the satellite’s core.
As the main industrial partner and the only company in French-speaking Switzerland involved in this adventure, Almatech is very proud of the trust and recognition of the quality of its work by the University of Bern, the European Space Agency (ESA/ESA) and more generally by the entire scientific community.
