El proyecto SABIA-Mar (Satélite Argentino Brasileño para Información del Mar) es un programa de cooperación entre la CONAE, la Agencia Espacial Brasileña (AEB) y el Instituto Nacional de Investigaciones Espaciales (INPE) de Brasil, con aplicaciones prioritarias en la observación del mar y costas.

Instruments

There are required two identical satellites, SABIA-Mar A & SABIA-Mar B, flying in constellation, to fulfill the mission requirements, global as well regional.

The Primary as well as Secondary instruments, their application and the responsible Agency are resumed in the flowing Tables
