São José dos Campos-SP, February 10, 2020
Satellite Image Amazônia-1 begins to be closed for environmental tests

The 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.

Launch date more like early March 2021

In addition to Amazonia-1, 3 Indian smallsats should be launched on PSLV C51

The other satellites are Anand from Pixxel,  Saditsat? from Spacefix India? and the University Consortium Unitysat. The last two were announced during the C50 speech, but I had a hard time understanding what was said.

  I did not mishear :) K.Sivan talking about the involvement of the private sector in building satellites. That's what three of those four satellites are, satellites built by private sector companies.

"Spacefix India" should be "Space Kidz India"

Amazônia-1 is listed as massing 290 kg, with a destination of 778 km SSO.

However, Business Standard: Rocket places India's 42nd communications satellite CMS-01 into orbit lists Amazonia-1's mass as betweeen 600 and 700 kg.

And, the launch is stated as in February-March 2021.

Will there be any other secondary payloads?

How do we know that the DL variant will be used for this launch?

Maybe in this launch are deployed Brazilian nanosatellites ITASAT-2 1,2 and 3. 6U cubesats,

Isro to launch first satellite developed entirely by Brazil's space agency

This is not the "first satellite developed entirely by Brazil's space agency". This honor goes to SCD-1, which was launched in 1993.

And there's SCD 2 as well. Unfortunately, SCD 2A was lost in the first VLS-1 failure, and SCD 3 was scrapped.

The Brazilian Space Agency AEB was established in February 1994. SCD satellites were developed by the INPE space research institute under the Brazilian Space Activities Comission, Comissão Brasileira de Atividades Espaciais - COBAE. SCD1 was launched by INPE under COBAE; SCD2, also developed by INPE, was the first satellite with AEB involvement. The AEB replaced COBAE in managing the civilian space activities in Brazil. Amazonia was built by INPE. AEB is more a bureaucratic white elephant.

 Would it be accurate to say that this (Amazonia-1) is the most sophisticated satellite developed in Brazil?  ISRO/India can derive gratification in that they are a part of it!  Together with the launch carrying the first ever Indian private sector satellite,
 it makes the PSLV C-51 quite tantalising.
