The CHaracterizing ExOPlanet Satellite (CHEOPS) has been selected in 2012 as the first S-class mission in ESA’s Science Programme. It is the first mission dedicated to search for planetary transits by means of ultrahigh precision photometry on bright stars already known to host planets.

CHEOPS is a joint ESA-Switzerland mission. Watch a short video describing CHEOPS and various Swiss industries participating in this mission.
