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.


To accomplish the application areas with the requirements imposed by the users, the main instruments on-board SABIA-MAR Satellite/s shall have the capability of observing:

a) Global ocean with low resolution 1 km with a daily revisit, with on board recording capability.

b) Regional coastal and in-land waters, area with medium resolution, 200 meters, with two days revisit, real time data; with on board capability recording under specific requirement.

c) Global and coastal sea surface temperature, with medium-high resolution, 400 m, with a daily revisit, with on board recording capability.

Besides the primary mission previously defined, and depending on available on-board resources (power, mass, volume, data transmission capabilities), the Payload of the satellite should consider other instruments:

•          Data Collection System (DCS)

•          Multi-Angle Multispectral Camera (MAC)

•          High Resolution Technological Panchromatic Camera (HRTPC)

•          High Sensitivity Camera (HSC)

Analyses Phase. Analyses performed during the Conceptual Design Phase have demonstrated that two identical satellites, flying in a constellation, will be required to fulfill with 100% of the mission requirements:.
