Title: Perspectivas INPE: 2005-2009


1
Why should emerging nations fly into space?
Gilberto Câmara (INPE, Brazil)
2
Space is full of good examples...
Voyager
GPS satellites
LANDSAT
3
... and also full of bad ones!
Star Wars (Reagan)
International Space Station
Space Shuttle
4
NASAs mission formerly began with To understand
and protect our home planet. Those words have
now been replaced with Pioneering the future.
The aim of better exploring the moon and Mars has
attractions, but we agree with the sentiment The
planet that has to matter most to us is the one
we live on.
5
An example to follow....
Dr. Vikram Sarabhai (father of Indian space
program)
"There are some who question the relevance of
space activities in a developing nation. To us,
there is no ambiguity of purpose. We do not have
the fantasy of competing with the economically
advanced nations in the exploration of the moon
or the planets or manned space-flight. But we are
convinced that if we are to play a meaningful
role nationally, and in the community of nations,
we must be second to none in the application of
advanced technologies to the real problems of man
and society. "
6
Emerging nations Focus on Social Benefits of
Space
Ecosystems
Energy
Agriculture
Climate
Natural disasters
Health

INPE RD in Space for Brazil
Brazil will be an environmental power in the 21st
century
  • INPE will produce RD in space technology and
    applications to support Brazils soft power

8
Build applications before building satellites
Today, Brazils monitoring system is the envy of
the world. INPE has its own remote sensing
satellite, a joint effort with China, that allows
it to publish yearly totals of deforested land
that scientists regard as reliable.
TerraAmazon
9
CBERS as a global satellite
CBERS ground stations will cover most of the
Earths land mass between 300N and 300S
10
If Brazil can do it, US can do it too
11
Global Change
How is the Earths environment changing, and
what are the consequences for our civilization?
Where are changes taking place? How much change
is happening? Who is being impacted by the
change?
12
A vision for the future
A constellation of satellites and sensors will
provide free earth observation data for all
countries on Earth
13
EO data benefits to everyone
Some lessons from best practices on space programs
Develop applications before satellites Focus on
Earth observation Science and engineering belong
together
