CBERS 3 and 4 Launching 

Due to the success of CBERS-1 and 2, the two governments decided, in November 2002, to give continuity to the CBERS program by signing a new agreement for the development and launching of two more satellites, CBERS-3 and 4.

Brazilian participation in this program will be enlarged up to 50%. CBERS-3 will be launched at the end of 2012, and CBERS-4 is scheduled to be launched two years later.

CBERS-3 and 4 satellites represent an evolution of CBERS-1 and 2. Four cameras will be present in the payload module, with improved geometrical and radiometric performance.

They are: PanMux Camera-PANMUX, Multi-spectral Camera-MUXCAM, Infrared Scanning Medium Resolution Scanner-IRSCAM, and Wide Field Imaging Camera-WFICAM.
