The 4th meeting of the National Commission for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) held in February, recommended the event to include in its discussions the issue of access, the easiest possible, to the satellite data.

CBERS 3 Rio+20 will discuss satellite data for development

CBERS-3 will be launched in November

Who brought it up was the Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Marco Antonio Raupp, who recalled the role of Brazil in the definition of satellite data as “common property of mankind”. The country has shipped more than one million images since 2004, from the three CBERS satellites. A new device (CBERS-3) will be launched in November this year.
