According to http://panoramaespacial.blogspot.pt/2012/10/itasat-1-no-voo-inaugural-do-cyclone-4.html (in Portuguese) the first launch of the Tsyklon-4 from Alcantara will probably also carry the ITASAT-1 Brazilian satellite.

Remember that's Brazil. And 2014 is the World Cup year. I guess there will be a rush to get "important" milestones done on Q1, to make them "el mais grande du mundo". Don't expect much work done between June and August. I know my productivity will be hit heavily.  8)

Azovmash to start producing second batch of special equipment for Cyclone-4 rocket in 2013

http://www.interfax.co.uk/ukraine-news/azovmash-to-start-producing-second-batch-of-special-equipment-for-cyclone-4-rocket-in-2013/

   Kyiv, December 3 (Interfax-Ukraine) – PJSC Azovzahalmash, part of PJSC Azovmash (both based in Mariupol, Donetsk region), is preparing to start in 2013 the production of the second batch of special equipment for the Cyclone-4 rocket space complex, which is being constructed by Ukraine and Brazil at the Alcantara spaceport (Brazil), the company’s press service has said.

The tests of four experimental tank containers for shipment of rocket fuel components, which were produced by the company for the space rocket complex, are scheduled for early 2013, Interfax-Ukraine learned at the press service.

“After the completion of testing of an experimental batch of tank containers, a decision will be taken whether to start the serial production of the special equipment. A total of 43 tank containers are to be produced under the contract,” the official said.

Azovzahalmash produced and shipped in June 2012 the first batch of special equipment for the Cyclone-4 rocket space complex. Systems for servicing the booster were supplied to the customer, including fuel and oxidizer filling facilities, and systems for the collection and neutralization of industrial wastewater.

Ukraine and Brazil signed an agreement in 2003 on long-term cooperation in constructing the Cyclone-4 space rocket complex at Brazil’s Alcantara space center.

The first launch of the Cyclone 4 launch vehicle is scheduled for late 2013.

Azovmash is a famous Ukrainian supplier of wagons, mining and crane equipment, fuelers, car carriers and other products on the international market.

SABIA  (SAC-E)

http://www.conae.gov.ar/eng/satelites/sac-e.html

The Argentine-Brazilian Satellite for Information on Food, Water and Environment (SABIA - Satélite Argentino-Brasileño de Información en Alimento, Agua y Ambiente), by the name of SAC-E, is part of the SAC series. CONAE, the Brazilian Space Agency (AEB), and the Brazilian Instituto Nacional de Pesquisas Espaciais (INPE) conduct this Earth observing mission in the framework of a space cooperation program.

The main objective of the mission is to collect and provide data on water and food production, with high spectral, geometrical and temporal resolution over the Mercosur area.


This is a payload that Brazil hopes to launch on Cyclone-4.

The Ukrainans are now saying late 2014 for its first launch: http://novosti-kosmonavtiki.ru/forum/messages/forum13/topic7430/message1057787/#message1057787

I saw that its launch backlog is very thin - is it known if some other payloads are considering this as the launcher?  :-\

Azovmash ships transport systems for space complex Tsyklon 4 in Brazil

KYIV, May 16 /UKRINFORM/. Joint Stock Company Azovmash has shipped transport systems for the space rocket complex Tsyklon 4 on the Alcantara space center in Brazil as part of a joint Ukrainian-Brazilian project, a correspondent of UKRINFORM reported.

"The units created in Mariupol were sent by sea to Latin America, where Brazil and Ukraine are building the spaceport Alcantara," the company's director general, Ihor Karpeichyk, told the press.

Mariupol produces reinforcement and pumping units, tank containers for temporary storage of oxidants and fuels; Azovmash designers are also finalizing a number of other systems for the space rocket complex Tsyklon 4.

The project Tsyklon 4 is implemented according to the October 21, 2003 agreement between Ukraine and the Federative Republic of Brazil on long-term cooperation in the use of the carrier rocket Tsyklon 4 at the Alcantara launch center. The project is implemented by the Ukrainian-Brazilian JV Alcantara Cyclone Space, created in 2006.

Ukraine provides the development of the carrier rocket Tsyklon 4 and preparation of the production base for its manufacture. Brazil provides the creation of the general infrastructure of the start-up center. On a parity basis, the partners are creating a ground complex for launches of the carrier rocket Tsyklon 4.

The very construction of the ground-based complex for Tsyklon 4 in Brazil was launched in 2010. Its area is about 50 hectares.

The first launch has already been postponed several times. But in April, Deputy Prime Minister Yuriy Boiko stated categorically that the first launch of the carrier rocket Tsyklon 4 at the Alcantara launch center in Brazil will take place at the end of 2014.

"We are going according to schedule both in the construction of the cosmodrome with its infrastructure, and in building the rocket and the satellite. The term of the first launch is the end of 2014, and we are confident that we will be ready by this time," Yuriy Boiko said.

Ukraine called on Brazil to stir up financing of Cyclone-4 project

http://www.kmu.gov.ua/control/en/publish/article?art_id=246490342

Ukraine has called on Brazil to find financing in order to continue realization of the Cyclone-4 project.

Prime Minister Mykola Azarov announced during a meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs of Brazil Antonio Patriota.

“An objectively successful project of our cooperation appears the Cyclone-4 Alcantara. The reliable realization of this project will contribute to increasing the authority of both your and our countries. In this complex situation the Government of Ukraine has approved a decision: for realization of this project to draw credit resources. We hope that the Brazilian side would use every opportunity to continue financing of their part of the project,” he said.

Mykola Azarov stressed that Brazil appeared the principal strategic trade and economic partner of Ukraine in the Latin America and in whole the economic relations between the two states were developing not bad. However, according to the Premier, the foreign trade relations face certain problems: notably, Ukraine considers groundless making two anti-dumping investigations by the Brazilian party concerning Ukrainian producers of rolled iron and auto tyres.

According to the Head of Government, activization of bilateral relations will facilitate holding of the sixth sitting of Ukrainian-Brazilian intergovernmental commission. “It is extremely important to hold the sixth sitting of Ukrainian-Brazilian intergovernmental commission and we are ready to fix the date of such meeting,” the Prime Minister said.

Happy news:

http://www.ebc.com.br/tecnologia/2013/08/empresa-que-lancara-foguetes-de-alcantara-recebera-r-333-milhoes

Empresa que lançará foguetes de Alcântara recebe R$ 33,33 milhões

This means that the company that will launch rockets from Alcantara has received 33,33 million REAIS from the federal government.  I don't know if this mean 33.33 million or some other amount. If it's 33.33 million, that is about $15 million, which is tiny for US aerospace, but would keep the lights on a little longer in Brazil.
