    On the path to preserving the Amazon, all help is welcome. INPE has 8 geostationary satellites over the Amazon (SCD-1, SCD-2A and SCD-2 and the CBERS series satellites – CBERS-1, CBERS-2, CBERS-2B, CBERS-3 and CBERS-4.

    These satellites are not always sufficient to effectively monitor the entire Amazon. Sometimes the Brazilian government asks the United States for help, other times Europe. Brazil pays for this help!

    When Brazil asks Chinese, Russian and Indian satellites for help, they help us for free.
