Financial Express Online was the first to report about the launch of the Brazilian Satellite in 2020. According to a representative of the Brazilian Space Agency (AEB), “The launch of Amazonia with PSLV later this year is confirmed. It is expected to be launched either in June or July.”Amazonia-1 which will be the primary payload, not a hitch-hike satellite has been built, designed and tested in Brazil. It will be Brazil’s first satellite for Earth Observation.It will provide remote sensing data (images) to observe and monitor deforestation especially in the Amazon region, and also the diversified agriculture throughout the country.
São José dos Campos-SP, February 10, 2020Satellite Image Amazônia-1 begins to be closed for environmental testsThe first remote sensing satellite fully developed in the country and by INPE, Amazônia-1, is in the process of closing the sides of the service module, the Multimission Platform, at the Integration and Testing Laboratory (LIT), in São José dos Campos (SP). This phase marks the transition from the satellite tests, previously performed with its open sides, to a phase that will be completely closed, with its flight model systems and subsystems inside.After its closure, systemic tests will be carried out, which precede the first environmental tests, which include dynamic - vibration - and thermal tests, under vacuum conditions. The Amazon-1 testing campaign started in June last year, at LIT.The satellite will be launched from the Sriharikota Launch Center (SHAR) in India by the PSLV (Polar Satellite Launch Vehicle) rocket. The launch is scheduled for September this year.Amazonia-1 will take on board an imager similar to that of the CBERS-4 and 4A satellites, developed in partnership with China and currently in orbit, whose images are of interest to the environmental monitoring of the Amazon region, among other applications.
A completely national satellite, designed and developed in Brazil and by the National Institute for Space Research (Inpe), Amazônia-1, which is already in the final testing phase and should be launched in February next year. "This satellite is focused precisely on observing the Amazon, it has a number of interesting features and is 100% national," said the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovations, Marcos Pontes, who participated in a press conference on Tuesday (14). press.It is the first remote sensing satellite. Amazonia-1 will expand the capacity to monitor biomes throughout the Brazilian territory. “Amazônia-1 is going to be launched together with India. I would like it to be launched here at our Alcântara Launch Center, but we still don't have the capacity to launch a satellite of this nature over there in Alcântara [MA], but we will have it soon ”, explained the minister.
ITASAT 2ITASAT 2 is a flight project for the formation of three satellites to carry out scientific and technological investigations in the ionosphere. It is a continuation of the research initiated with the SPORT project, a nanosatellite with the purpose of investigating the space climate. Its importance lies in the fact that the ionosphere has a great influence on the current electronic systems used in our society, such as GPS (which in Portuguese means Global Positioning System), communications and energy transmission.According to Professor Loures, this Pre-Phase A study work, entrusted by the Brazilian Space Agency to ITA, demonstrates the agency's confidence in the technical level reached by the Institute in the Space Systems project. “This competence started with ITASAT, financed by AEB, and was definitely consolidated with our work with NASA and American universities on the SPORT satellite. ITA establishes itself as a ‘player’ in this space niche and our path will show that we will do much more. After finishing this study, we will start project activities in 2021 ”, he explained.

Does anyone know the status of the ASTER project?https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASTER_(spacecraft)Is it alive in any form or shape, or shut down?

This week the deployment test of the solar panels of the CONAE SABIA-Mar Earth observation satellite was carried out, which is in the design and construction phase, with launch scheduled for 2023.
On 1 October 2021, an S50 solid-propellant rocket motor, which will form the first two stages of the new VLM-1 launch vehicle, successfully completed a static firing test in the operational area of Usina Coronel Abner (UCA), in São José dos Campos, São Paulo state, Brazil. The test was conducted by an engineering team from the Aeronautics and Space Institute (Instituto de Aeronáutica e Espaço; IAE), which is headquartered in São José dos Campos, on behalf of the Brazilian Air Force (Força Aérea Brasileira; FAB) and the Brazilian Department of Aerospace Science and Technology (Departamento de Ciência e Tecnologia Aeroespacial; DCTA). As part of the long-standing cooperation between Brazil and the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR), the rocket motor that has now been tested will also be used for a new European sounding rocket. This will significantly improve the range of services available in the field of suborbital launchers.<snip>The S50 is the largest rocket motor ever manufactured in Brazil, with 12 tonnes of solid propellant, and employs innovative technologies such as the use of carbon-fibre-reinforced composites for the engine casing, which makes it lighter and more efficient. The first launch with an S50 is planned for 2023 from the Alcântara Space Center (Centro Espacial de Alcântara; CEA).The static firing lasted 84 seconds and tested the behaviour of the motor. The successful completion of this test was critical for the final stages of development of the S50 motor, which will provide Brazil with new capabilities in terms of the deployment of suborbital vehicles and microsatellites through the Microsatellite Launch Vehicle Project (Projeto do Veículo Lançador de Microssatélites; VLM-1).
