PicSat is a nano-satellite designed to measure exoplanetary transits. The development of the CubeSat is conducted within the High Angular Resolution Astronomy group at LESIA. The PicSat satellite uses single-mode fibre filtering and single pixel avalanche photodiode for high accuracy photometry. It is also a technology demonstrator for future interferometric missions.
