Brazil has asked India to help train its space scientists for its space programme. The Brazilian National Security Advisor has proposed that the Brazilian scientists should be trained in ISRO (Indian Space Research Organisation) for the remote sensing data earth station set up by India in Brazil.

Under an agreement signed between ISRO and Brazil in 2000, both countries had agreed on the possibilities of cooperation in areas like satellites and their applications, sharing of facilities of space and science, use of remote sensing applications for training purpose, and sharing of expertise in developmental communications.

It may be noted that India earlier assisted Argentina in its space programme and helped launch its satellite. With Columbia the space programme could not take off. There are cooperative agreements with other Latin American countries such as Peru, Chile and Venezuela as well.

On the lines of Argentina, Brazil too wants a satellite to be launched with Indian assistance, meant to be used for communication and data collection in space.

A retired ISRO official told this newspaper that, "India has a good remote sensing imagery capability with up to 1 metre resolution. India has set up ground stations in other countries as well, like the US, and is helping other nations in setting up theirs, as this helps in international cooperation. This is indigenous capability."

ISRO already has the facility to impart training on how to operate the station and gather data through remote sensing, which will be used by Brazilian scientists for training.

Brazil already has defence cooperation with India and is stepping up space cooperation as well. Brazil is building four Scorpene submarines under licence agreement with French submarine manufacturer DCNS, which is also assisting India for the same. For this Brazil has approached the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for cooperation in sharing spare parts and imparting training in operations. But India has shown reluctance as the agreement with France does not allow a third country into it.

after 12 years of signing the deal they are waking up and undergoing the deal. BS..
but ok atleast they are working in wish ibsa become a powerful bloc in next 20-30 years with all these three nations having strong economic and business ties. they can share weapon development porgram and provide eachother with customized weaponry to suit respective specification. india can share its experience and sa and brazil too can share their exp and expertise.

India should warm up to Brazil and make it a stepping stone into South America.

South America has immense potential in mineral resources and even technological expertise.

Good news

Brazil needs to remount their space's scientists team since the VLS-I (acronym Satellite Launcher Vehicle) rocket's explosion accident killed 21 technical persons of ours. Many them were very qualified professionals, which had more than ten years training.

In exchange, Brazil could offer to India launch his satellites from our Alcantara Base, that is regarded one of better local in the world and better than French Guyana's Kourou Base.

I doubt India is going to launch satellites from any other place than Sriharikotta in India, in the forseeable future.

What a tragedy.

Brazilian Rocket Explodes On Pad: Many Dead

Twenty-one people died in the explosion of a satellite launch rocket at Brazil's Alcantara space center near here, aeronautics officials confirmed Saturday.

The prototype launch vehicle was being prepared for Monday's launch into orbit of two Brazilian observation satellites when it exploded Friday, incinerating the bodies of the victims and destroying the satellites and launch pad.

The space center in Maranhao state was in total lockdown Saturday, with soldiers barring entry to all unauthorized people. Journalists were instructed to talk to official spokespeople, while grieving relatives complained of receiving minimal information.

The explosion was triggered when one of the rocket's four main thrust engines was unintentionally fired up. The 36-meter(118-foot) platform where the technicians were working disintegrated, officials said.

India maybe don't want launch its satellites from another base. What I know is that the nearness to Equator line saves rocket's fuel, and about this item Alcantara offers more advantages than another world launch centers

Sriharikotta is at 13º N from Equator line, Kourou is at 5º N, and Alcantara is at 2º S.

Or embraer's help in India's Aerospace ventures.

Like the HAL/NAL Regional Transport Aircraft.

HAL Sara

However this may be seen as helping a competitor to them.

Emerging Powers Brazil, India Look To Space Cooperation

Outline was agreed by the end of the year, the concrete fields of cooperation to be effective, based on mutual interests and participation of companies from both countries. It was also agreed to devote special attention to the program in future meetings Satellite IBSA forum approved by India, Brazil and South Africa. The technical characteristics of these satellites have begun to be developed.

Max payload 4tons for both rockets..

Technically both are different..
